  1. Defamation campaign against Web of Trust
    Mon 15 Jun 2009 10:12:04 AM UTC — Esa S.
    When I checked my email on Saturday morning I noticed that my Google alert had picked up several postings with false and defamatory information on WOT and me:

    hubpages.com
    yahoo.answer.com
    Complaintsboard.com
    Ripoffreport.com

    Based on the similarities between these postings, this defamation campaign against Web of Trust has been launched by a single person or a company. Two quotes:

    “CEO Esa Suurio is ripping off each and every one of his users. He is stealing the identities of the users and selling it to the highest bidder, and then hiding it all behind foreign laws.”

    “Scammer Esa Suurio has quite the racket going on here. He’s a self called “serial entrepreneur” but should more correctly be called “serial scammer”. He uses the complexities of international law to hide his crimes, but INTERPOL or the FBI should do something to shut these people down.

    As you can see, these lies are spread as if I myself had posted them, which is good for the search engine optimization but certainly hurts credibility 😉

    They can throw stones at us, but they can’t stop the Web of Trust!

    When I started at Web of Trust back in August 2007, WOT had some 70,000 downloads. Today we have 5 million downloads, and many players in the Internet security field regard us the leading provider of website safety ratings. Besides friends and supporters, this success has brought us many enemies among scammers whose illegitimate businesses get hurt when their scams are revealed by WOT.

    These crooks, hiding in the dark corners of the Internet, will do their best to distract and cause disturbance, but we will not give up! This libeling proves that Web of Trust has succeeded in what it has been founded for, making the Internet safer for us all. It also proves that the work of each community member really makes a difference. Let’s keep up the good work!

  2. Defamation Campaign Against RIPOFFREPORT & its Owner Ed Magedson

    RIPOFFREPORT owner Ed Magedson charged with RICO – Racketeering in Phoenix Federal

    Racketeering Charges Filed! Conspiracy and Racketeering (RICO) proceedings as well as claims for defamation and invasion of privacy are being issued against Ed Magedson owner or RIP OFF REPORT and Bad Business Bureau – under a Federal Court in Phoenix Arizona. The warrant has been issued against Rip Off Report, Bad Business Bureau – owner Ed Magedson for the operation including the sites: ripoffreport.com, badbusinessbureau.com, and a number of countless other “consumer advocate” sites being orchestrated by the extortion consortium. Ed Magedson operates his illegal extortion scam under the guise of “consumer advocacy” sites – to force innocent companies into paying him to take down his dirty posts. Currently 28 Attorney Generals and 17 Federal Prosecutors throughout the U.S. are pursuing Ed Magedson and the rip off report. Known to draft court service notices since 1992 (long before he started this extortion operation), rewards of up to $50,000 have been offered for his whereabouts. If you do a key word search under “Ed Magedson” you will see his shady past.

    But the legitimate companies are not paying. Currently there are almost 100 court cases pending against Ed Magedson – including a judgement against ED for Ten Million Dollars – under the courts of Nevis where he has hosted his websites in the past.

    Join the Class Action Lawsuit – Against the Rip Off Report

    The tide is turning. A group of more than 130 companies have joined together in a class action law suit and are leading the charge against RIP OFF REPORT Ed Magedson and his group of strong armed criminals. Instead of each company having to fight the battle alone, the class action law suit has organized many companies and individuals including Walmart, Verizon Wireless, Pizza Hut and more who have been targeted by this extortion operation.

    BREAKING NEWS:

    DEFENDANTS: Ed Magedson, Xcentric Ventures, LLC, Ripoffreport.com, Bad Business Bureau.com

    “IT IS SO ORDERED. Defendants’ Motions to Dismiss for Lack of Jurisdiction are denied.”

    January 18, 2006, Charles R. Norgle, District Judge

    This decision by a Federal Judge clears the way for business, that have been the target of Rip Off Report – Ed Magedson’s extortion racket, to sue, shut down and jail Ed Magedson and his collaborators.

    Facts in Evidence:

    “Visitors must register with Sites, by providing identifying information such as name, email and street address in order to post comments. Defendants sell this information to law firms seeking to file class action lawsuits against companies. In addition, discovery has revealed that Defendants sought to enter into a business relationship with the law firm of…, which holds itself out as a firm, which ‘prosecutes class actions throughout the United States…’ Defendants proposed to refer clients to this firm, and attempted to negotiate a fee of $800,000 per year for this service. Defendants referred clients (information) to one of these (law) firms and actively solicited the business of another.”

    In one case, the website (Rip off Report) posted more than 110 “complaints” from consumers. Investigation proved that only 11 of these postings were actually from customers. The balance of 99 reports was made-up by members of Rip Off Report staff.

    EXTORTION EXTORTION MALCIOUS LIBELOUS CRIMINAL SCAM RIPOFF REPORT!!!
    !

    I have seen and talk to many people trying to protect their name and reputation and so far they have not had much luck against rip off report. The reason why is the all go down the same path. You have not done anything until you e-mail and call his service providers. If you have not done that , then why do you spend your $$$ on lawyers. A e-mail or call is free. Just use the same letter and just explain the truth. One letter to one of service providers got his extortion scam off a google for a while. Rip off Report has hurt a lot of good people and companies. At least alert the people below of what Rip off report is doing to you and your company.
    If you are attacked by rip off report e-mail the abuse departments of his service providers. Ed’s site is in violation of their of service(T.OS).. If enough try to get the truth out maybe something will happen. Ed’s had to switch one of his providers before because of our e-mails and calls. How can the Government and his service providers let this scam go on.They wouldn’t like false, malicious,libelous,half truths and any other lie about them. I bet Ed would remove, edit or take down any URL that was malicious about them. It is not FREEDOM OF SPEECH. One day justice will be served! Defamatory postings on the Internet are libel, not slander, under California law and plaintiffs may collect damages for them without demonstrating specific injury, the Sixth District Court of Appeal ruled yesterday.

    Justice Eugene M. Premo rejected the contention of two former employees of a Silicon Valley technological equipment manufacturer that the postings were best analogized to radio or television broadcasts, which if defamatory are classified as slander under Civil Code Sec. 46. The section does not mention television, but refers to communications which are “orally uttered, and also communications by radio or any mechanical or other means,” and has been construed to include television broadcasts

    Does Ed attach spy ware to people? Is that legal?

    Why does rip off report trace go through Oklahoma City?

    Is Ed Magedson, owner Ripoffreport.com, an Extortionist?
    12-23-2004, 10:16 PM

    Ripoff reports and its lies and deceit!!

    ——————————————————————————–

    I have been watching Ed Magedson from Ripoffreport come onto these sites and attack people who have legitimate claims against his site. Whenever one of these people, who are simply defending their name, writes up their story of being libeled by Ed Magedson, he and his staff immediately work to have any negative remarks about Ripoffreport removed. I find it hypocritical that Ed even as Ed is having negative postings about himself removed, he refuses to remove any negative postings from HIS site, even when they are obviously lies, because he states that “they are anonymous postings and he has no liability” according to some 1996 Act. A Wisconsin court ruled that they had no place in a lawsuit against Ed, not because of some 1996 Act, but because they felt they had no jurisdiction because Ed was in St. Kitts. Well, he was never doing business in St. Kitts, but simply used the offshore address to try to defer any legitimate lawsuits that he knows he would lose otherwise. Luckily for me, and EVERYONE that has been maliciously and falsely attacked on Ripoffreports, Ed is indeed based in the US and any lawsuits against him ARE under the jurisdiction of US courts, as long as you have the rigjht information. Ed Magedson is not in St. Kitts, he is in Arizona. If YOU have been maliciously and falsely attacked by Ed Magedson, then this is the name and address that you need:
    Ed Magedson
    Xcentric Ventures, LLC
    P.O. Box 470
    Tempe, AZ 85280
    (602)518-4357 cell

    As you can see, in an attempt to slither under the radar and be “above the law”, he lists only a P.O. Box and cell phone number as his business contact information. (What legitimate businessperson uses a P.O. Box and personal cell phone as business contacts? I can only think of drug dealers, hit men, thieves, and any other slimy, crooked individuals that luckily I’ve only seen in movies.)
    Several lawsuit papers have SUCCESSFULLY been served to Ed Magedson. Here is one of them:
    IN THE CIRCUIT COURT OF THE 17TH JUDICIAL CIRCUIT IN AND FOR BROWARD COUNTY, FLORIDA
    CASE NO: 04-17721-21
    go look it up!

    There are also formal complaints filed against Ed Magedson at the Office of the Attorney General of Arizona because of the CRIMINAL nature of his site:
    CIC 04-21090
    call them about it! voice YOUR complaint! (602)542-5763

    Also, the companies that provide the services for Ed Magedson, and enable him to ILLEGALLY attack YOU, try to hide behind the fact that Ed is “only a costumer.” ANY court WILL find them responsible because THEY are the ones providing the service. It is no different than a getaway driver for bank robbers. The driver is just as guilty, even if he doesn’t know about the robbery. Here is those companies info:
    Puregig.com
    3443 N. Central Ave.
    Suite 706
    Phoenix, AZ 85012
    (602)445-1850
    abuse@puregig.net

    Prolexic.com
    (866)800-0366
    abuse@prolexic.com

    These companies admit nothing except that “Ed is a customer.” But, these companies DO know about Ed’s illegal activity, he simply pays them to let him be. When you do press for more information about their relationship with ED, and get through the circles of BS, these companies’ lawyers will tell you some BS about some 1996 Act, but that is simply to discourage you. TALK TO A LAWYER! This Act does NOT protect them. (Look at the service agreements for these companies. They DO know that they are liable, and they have provisions to allow them to stop any service if they feel it makes them liable for lawsuits and/or criminal acts. They WILL shut Ed down, if we push forth against them. Unless they are in bed with Ed and his criminal empire.) They cannot win a countersuit against you, it is obvious to ANYONE who reads his site that he libels HUNDREDS of different people and companies. All you are going for is the truth, and that is what courts are for.
    Also, contact your local BBB, they are well aware of Ed’s activites, and welcome any new information about his illegal attacks against innocent people.
    Ed Magedson believes that he is all knowing, and that he alone should have the power to be the judge, jury, and executioner. Watch this posting. Ed will probably have it removed, even though he would refuse to do the same on his site. But this posting is all true, and his site is full of lies. And remember, Ed is illegally using YOUR company name to advertise his site. He includes you company name in his metatags for search engine submissions so that his site full of lies will come up under a search of your business name. THIS IS ILLEGAL. He CANNOT use your licensed company name to advertise his site, unless he has your expressed written permission.

  3. Defamation Suit Smacks Consumer Web Site – ConsumerAffairs.com
    Joe Palazzolo
    Legal Times
    March 31, 2008

    ConsumerAffairs.com presents itself as a forum for consumers to air their gripes about everything from allegedly explosive Martha Stewart patio furniture to predatory lenders.

    James Hood, a former reporter, launched the Web site a decade ago and was shrewd about naming it — given there are dozens of public “consumer affairs” agencies around the country that levy fines against offending businesses or shovel complaints to attorneys general for legal action. ConsumerAffairs.com’s answer is to pipe the complaints to lawyers at the Chicago-based law firm Horwitz, Horwitz & Associates, who pick through them for potential class actions.

    There are some — namely, Tom Nemet, owner of Nemet Motors in Jamaica, Queens — who say the Los Angeles–based Web site is more interested in helping lawyers find leads than in serving consumers.

    Earlier this month, Nemet filed a defamation suit against ConsumerAffairs.com in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, alleging that the Web site has been publishing “false, malicious and libelous” complaints about his business.

    He has sued ConsumerAffairs.com twice before in New York federal court, but dropped the suits before they were dismissed on jurisdictional grounds.

    This time, Nemet says he’s got the jurisdiction problem licked. Outside of California, ConsumerAffairs.com Inc. has offices in Fairfax, Va., and in Washington, D.C. Most of the editorial staff — there are about 10 writers — are based there.

    Nemet has hired a team of D.C.-based lawyers at Patton Boggs to help him recover $2 million in monetary relief and punitive damages, and he wants the court to make Hood remove the complaints. “My competitors started using [the complaints] against me,” Nemet says. “I knew I had to do something, and I got a very, very powerful law firm.”

    Nemet met Thomas Boggs about 30 years ago, when the famed lawyer-lobbyist was working on behalf of Auto Dealers and Drivers for Free Trade, or Autopac. Nemet was the organization’s chairman at the time.

    Hood, a former Associated Press reporter and vice president at United Press International, says the complaints against Nemet are protected speech. He will not take them off the site, unless ordered to by the court, he says.

    “They’re pretty much up there forever,” he says.

    Hood says Stephen Shannon, special counsel at Odin, Feldman & Pittleman in Fairfax, will handle his defense.

    In one of seven complaints cited in the lawsuit, “Esther of Jamaica, N.Y.” says she was told by a salesman that she had to buy a $2,500 extended warranty and a $1,195 alarm system. “Now I am stuck with a car loan for $28,500 for a car that is worth about $23,500,” she wrote on the Web site.

    “These statements are false,” the lawsuit states. Esther signed a contract with Nemet and “now suffers from buyer’s remorse.”

    The lawsuit also accuses the Web site of tortious interference and a violation of the Lanham Act, a law often used when false or misleading statements are alleged to have harmed a business.

    Nemet and his lawyers say that ConsumerAffairs.com’s name is likely to deceive consumers, who can’t tell it apart from the state agencies, like the New York City Department of Consumer Affairs.

    ConsumerAffairs.com misleads the public because its actual purpose appears to be to sell online advertising and refer matters to attorneys for litigation rather than assist the consumer,” says Patton Boggs partner Benjamin Chew.

    The Web site survives on ad revenue, some of which is generated by consumer attorneys. But Hood says he and the lawyers who review the complaints stay out of each other’s affairs.

    “We don’t split fees; we don’t have any kind of commission or bonus agreement with any law firm of any kind,” he says.

    Hood declined to name the lawyers associated with the site, but Horwitz, Horwitz & Associates advertises on its Web site that it “works closely with ConsumerAffairs.com.” The firm declined to comment on its work for the Web site.

    Hood estimates that complaints on ConsumerAffairs.com have spawned 50 or 60 class actions. (They have also drawn heat. “We get sued with regularity,” Hood says, though he wouldn’t give a figure.) Horwitz lawyers are currently handling a class action against Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia Inc., and KMart Corp. over shattering glass-top patio tables. The plaintiffs were recruited on ConsumerAffairs.com.

  8. Hi,
    I recently filled out an application for moonstep to work as a mystery shopper. After I faxed the application I received an urgent email to add there email address “moonstrp-llc@gmx.com” to my whitelist (whatever that means) then they begin to explain how I’d like to be paid: Bank wire acct, western union, paypal, or money gram. This is when the red flag went up..Im worried because yes I opened an attachment and yes I faxed a form with my name, address, email and phone number and gave them the name of my bank, but not acct #. What should i do from here?? Should i scan my computer and look for something specific?? Should i change all my passwords, but what if their tracking my every move on my computer?? I’m worried that i’ve made a stupid mistake. Help!!! FYI Im looking for a job if your looking for help.
