XCENTRIC VENTURES LLC aka Ripoffreport.com is harboring an online terrorist who has slandered against my name and website back in april 2012. I emailed XCENTRIC VENTURES LLC and requested a removal of the slander and i received an email asking me to pay $5000+ to review my case...

their is nothing to review, an anonymous coward has posted false allegations against my family name and website with no evidence or proof. I do not practice in any criminal activities and this bastard ED who owns XCENTRIC VENTURES LLC wants to charge me $5000+ for a defamation case

Since when is extortion allowed for defamtion?

XCENTRIC VENTURES LLC needs to be hold liable for harboring online terrorist who use anonymous identities to slander against honest hard working people

I am curious about one thing. Is there a reason why such a negative report was submitted about the founder and/or the site? What is the complaint/ bad experience you personally have had with the site or the founder? I understand and do not dispute your statements from Fox television report or Florida Corrections, for example, but that is just repeated heresay. I am even more curious now, to know what happened to you that you have a complaint about. This just warrants negative publicity or a witch hunt. He must have made you angry at one time or another and besides me, I am sure the "readers want to know" what your complaint is - bottom line.

Come on Ripoffreport.com.

Ed Magnesdon crawl out from under your rock.
To anyone that files a rebuttle and puts their website on this post (no fault of http://www.complaintsboard.com) will be shot straight to the top when their name is Googled and ruin your business further. That's part of the extortion or how he gets even with you.

Just Google /link removed/ That is enough proof for anyoone to see what this parasite is up to.

NEVER post your website address, or file a rebuttle. It will send you straight to the top of Google when typing in your website address.

You know that, you piece of garbage.

Here is some proof of this exortion racket, right from the owner Ed Madgedsons own email conversation in which he extorts an honest business owner - Please see below.


“From: EDitor@/link removed/
To: seanluke@earthlink.net; Chris McFarland; Steve Miller
Cc: EDitor@/link removed/; ‘Maria Crimi Speth’
Subject: Proposed settlement offer Federated Financial… RE: as per our last conversation
Chris McFarland & Steve Miller.

SO you know, I have had no Internet for the last 2 hours.. Plus, I am running a fever and going to bed.

…If you want the Corporate Advocacy Program,

I would give you a reduced fee of $2, 500 up front and a monthly monitoring of about $125 a month.. paid every 4 months.
The normal cost for the amount of Reports you have would be about $9, 000 and much more of a monthly monitoring fee, .

THIS WOULD INCLUDE:

An investigative Report by Rip-off. In this case, we know it would be a very positive one, turning all the negatives into a positive. Anyone would want to do business with your company. You will wish there were more Rip-off on you, …NO joke…

Monitoring and verifying FIRST all Rip-off and REBUTTALS. they would be contacted within in 30 minutes of their filing and put into a holding bin, we would also be explaining a positive view of what has happened over time and how we know, (and we do know) that you will take care of the situation, and they would be given your special contact e-mail address to take care of any issues they did not get resolved by your staff with in 14 days. AS a part of this program, Federated Financial (like all its other members) would be guaranteeing complete customer satisfaction and a refund of fees if they were not satisfied. ( if applicable) (this can vary with different businesses and can be discussed)

There is a lot more to the program, I will sent that to you if you want, it will come as an attached document….

Have a happy safe and healthy new year!

sincerely,

ED Magedson”
This was taken from the http://www.bad-business-rip-off.com/ website. A must read for anyone who wants to know the truth about the /link removed/ website.
It is true that many bad business are exposed on /link removed/ but the sad fact is that ripoffreport is proactive in taking money from these companies to issue BS staements about them being trustworthy when they actually are not. It appears from the response letter posted above that /link removed/;s “investigations” that are conducted after these companies shell out dough are 100% horsecrap.
This is an interesting bit of info from the /link removed/ website at /URL removed/:

# Fees for enrolling in the program are based upon the number of Reports filed, the number of offices you have, and/or the size of an average sale. Additionally, there is a flat set-up fee to offset the costs associated with programming and contract legalities. Rate sheets will be sent upon completion and verification of the intake questionnaire.
# If participation in this program would honestly create a financial hardship, but you desire to participate, we will work with you to find a way to make it work. This may require providing financial documents proving hardship. “

This looks to be in other words, “We want to extort from you whatever we can get based on how much your company is making.”

In short all the “glittering reviews” offered by the /link removed/ website toward onestopmotors.com are meaningless. It would appear to any person with half a brain that onestopmotors.com paid off ripoffreport.

Looking past the BS “investigation” of the RipOffReport into One Stop Motors it seems there is hardly anything on the internet that mentions them but complaints outside of the numerous domains that OneStopMotors.Com maintains to drown out truthful sites about them like this one.

First of all, I apologize for my naive and uninformed response on 10-11-08 " I am curious about one thing. Is there a reason why such a negative report was submitted about the founder and/or the site?" Lesson learned here. Usually I do research before I open my big mouth. This is a great example of just the damage that can be done by lack of checking your facts and ignorance. I see now by doing a ton of reading on rip off report and Ed Magedson. My apologies to Peter who wrote the complaint. I understand now why you wrote it and I should not have been so negative in my questions to you. Your post was very informative.

RIPOFFREPORT.COM purposefully hurts good companies
The editor of rip-off Ed Magedson purposefully turns a blind eye to people who have been criminally libeled by falee and malicious statements about hard working small
businesses and individuals. Business competitors or disgruntled employees, etc can post any lie about a company without any reprecussion. Even when the editor knows it is false
and criminal, he refuses to do anything to help those who have been libeled. Instead, he states you should just reply and defend yourself. That is not easy when a business competitor can anonymously call you a sex offender without proof or even giving their name.

I wouldn't put ANY value on the posts on ripoffreport. Before you believe information found on that site, look up the postings for prostitutes or adulterers. Why would any legitimate consumer complaint site have a prostitute complaint section? Anyone is allowed to post anything they want about anyone
or anything on ripoffreport. Don’t like your competitors? It’s ok just post a hundred complaints under false names! Did you get fired for doing drugs at work? No problem! File a ripoffreport and get your revenge! Are you a company that has been reported for something false and you want to get it removed?
All you have to do is pay ripoffreport a large sum of money to ‘review the postings’

/link removed/ is a slimy, dishonest, illegal extortion racket. The site should be shut down by the FBI.

If you are not Reporting a Rip-off or you have positive things to say, your comments will be best served and will benefit the Reported business or individual if you put these comments with an existing Rip-off that is against the business or individual instead of posting a new Report, no one will know what you are talking about? ... New Rip-off are for filing some sort of a Rip-off or injustice you suffered.

You need to click on the REBUTTAL Box at the end of the specific Rip-off these comments belong with.

Again, No one will know what you are referring to, and posting these comments as a new report will not be beneficial to the reported business or individual...

Please click on the REBUTTAL Box at the end of the specific Rip-off you think these comments will relate to best...

Here is your copy below for your convenience...

SEE THEY DO IT ON PORPUSE TO DRIVE TRAFFIC- LIKE UNHAPPY CONSUMERS TO POST ON THEIR SITE SO THEY CAN SELL ADVERTISING SPACES--DO NOT FILE A REPORT WITH THIS SITE- THEY ARE FAKE AND DO NOT WORK FOR THE PEOPLE AS THEY CLAIM ON THEIR FRONT PAGE!!!

I was just trying to understand what is going on about this company. I also went to a seminar last week on the 9th of Dec. 2010, and I am curious about the fraud. I was reading and everything that went on happened exactly in my town. I have a red flag up now in my head because I can't afford a ripoff.

Are you prepared to prove that ED is a bastard? If you are unable to prove he is illegitimate you may be libel for making a false allegation.

Im not a business... I'm just a person with a personal blog... slander against my family name and family home address has been posted on this bastards extortion website and he won't remove it, unless i pay him $5000 to review the fake anonymous user.

The LAW is harboring an online terrorist and extortionist blackmailing me, bastard is a criminal trying to obtain money from me for a fake post.

Shame on USA government for allowing this bastard to operate from Arizona.
