THE TRUTH, THE WHOLE TRUTH, NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH

Reputations are important, right? We all want to be understood for who we are, what we’ve done and how we conduct ourselves. Companies and corporations are no different. They work very hard to protect their image and their product’s images. And they get lots of help from people like those at Reputation(dot)com and other reputation management companies. So, that’s a good thing, right?

NO, it’s not.

Internet companies that promise reputation management do so by creating FALSE websites and FALSE search results to keep the general public from seeing what complaints exist about a company. They commit a fraud against you, the consumer, in favor of their clients who are paying them huge sums of money.

Why do they pay these HUGE sums of cash? Because it’s easier than SATISFYING their customers. It’s easier than DOING WHAT THEY PROMISED. It’s easier to LIE TO THE PUBLIC and get away with it.

It’s just a 21st Century form of CENSORSHIP.  But it’s not some government TRYING TO PROTECT its citizenship. It’s the COMPANIES THAT ARE TRYING TO SCREW YOU.

When people want to find out about a company or service THEY DO NOT KNOW ABOUT they use Google, Bing, Yahoo or any of a number of internet search engines. We all count on them to offer REAL information and REAL results. Not some fake pages put up by companies TRYING TO COMMIT CRIMES AGAINST CONSUMERS.

Imagine this scenario:

By now, you’ve probably all heard the accusations about Jerry Sandusky, the former Penn State assistant football coach. He’s been charged with more than 40 counts of sex crimes against teen boys who participated in his training camps and other events. So, imagine if you had a teen athlete in your family and were looking for some private coaching to help him achieve his goals. What if you searched Google (or Bing, Yahoo, etc.) and found this:

 

Jerry Sandusky fake ad

Don’t let that be your search result!

THAT’S what REPUTATION MANAGEMENT COMPANIES want to illegally fill the web with: LIES.

DON’T LET THEM.

    as usual, great Job, Ed! the truth may not always be easy, but the truth will always PREVAIL.

  2. Remarkable issues here. I’m very happy to see your post. Thanks a lot and I’m having a look forward to contact you. Will you kindly drop me a e-mail?

  3. Karen says:

    Thank God someone has got the courage to stand up for the truth, from an early age, despite of adversity. I was told by my ex-boss (and friend) that her uncle once told her “truth is golden but the trouble is, nobody wants to hear it.” Well long live Ed and remember the truth is out there!

    I just happened to “Ed Magedson, voice of the consumer”. I am truly thrilled to have bumped into you Ed. Lately, it seems, as I cruise, haphazardly, across the websites (in search of someone, somewhere) hoping and praying I would get a sign leading me to where I could feel safe and find the missing link. The link that would be a starting point, THE starting point, where I could unload, to someone, who would listen and understand. Yes, someone who would truly understand, the hell I have endured, unjustly, and help me get the justice I deserve. It not only is my God given right but my constitutional right as well. Just because I am not rich doesn’t mean I’m not as good or better than all the b_______s who have ripped me off!

    I have used Ripoff Reports Several Times for legitimate issues. All your reasons for running your site are legitimate. You will not remove reports for money like YELP does. In fact I just filed a ripoff report on Yelp for VERY legitimate reasons. Feel Free to check it out.

    There are billions of pieces of information on WIKIPEDIA that are false. Do they get sued. No You are probably the reason why. Thank God for free speech.

    Thanks for your website Rip-Off Report! Its a great forum to tell the truth about companies and individuals who are dishonest and/or untruthful in their business dealings.

    As Americans our justice system has failed to protect the average everyday working Joe from treatment such as this. If you have money that your willing to pay a lawyer, then there is nothing an attorney is not willing to do to charge his client, regardles of right or wrong, truth or lies. The courts no longer require a higher standard of lawyers as “officers of the court”. Their basically licensed liars! God Bless you Ed!

    Hello Ed!
    Wow I wish I had known about you in the early 2000′s, as I was harassed by the small time bullies where I used to live just because I didn’t want buildings with high density housing going up next to our house, and the real estate lady lied to me, anyhow, the town bullies ganged up on me and they the politicos of corruption gearedup and into action, I was jailed for so many false things and nothing true, all lies I was put in the newspaper as a quasi terror of the town, and these big fish in the little pond had such a field day, my good name was ruined, I still have these things on my record, lucky I’m older now, as it was impossible to get a job, as the records are now searched b4 employment I spent many monies on attorney fees as I had to defend myself rather than be charged with most of this hocus pocus, some ended up as civil suits, anyhow in the end the sneaky slippery city manager, ended up with 3 million dollars of tax payer money, for an infrastructure grant to fix the water lines in the town, which he never did, there are some that are still made of old redwood logs from the 1800′s, but it still makes me angry that he tried somewhat successfully to ruin my reputation, and ends up 3 million dollars richer at the poor taxpayers expense and the little town still floods when the rains come, will he ever be held accountable for what he did to me and others??????
    don’t know???????
    A dirty business for sure!
