LOS ANGELES, CA – 9/12/2016 — Press Release Jet has just published an article on its website which expose a false review of the company published on Ripoff Report, a site that offers users the opportunity to file complaints about businesses.
According to this complaint, Press Release Jet was responsible for identity fraud and “bogus” debit card charges. The poster was anonymous and provided very little detail about this alleged scam. In response, Press Release Jet has revealed that this review is fraudulent, and that a number of other businesses have been unjustly targeted by reviewers on Ripoff Report. The articles cite complaints from other individuals and businesses that have had similar experiences. According to one of these complaints: “The Ripoff Report makes fake posts about people and companies then try to extort you for 3 grand to take you off the site… Not one of these so called people used a real name because they are not real. I refuse to pay them 3 grand to take the lies about me off their site.”
The article points out that this kind of activity is damaging to both businesses and consumers: “While the effects of these actions can be very harmful to a small business like Press Release Jet, it is also harmful to consumers who trust the honesty of online reviews in making business decisions.” They also reveal that there has been a total of 52 unresolved complaints about Ripoff Report filed with the Better Business Bureau. Most of these complaints concern the publication of false reviews and the fact that businesses must pay between $2000-$3000 to have such reports arbitrated or removed.
This scam highlights the power of the Internet in today’s business world and the ease with which professional reputation can be damaged by false information posted there.
