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.

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!
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.
