Oz Ripoff Shut Down

After years of hiding behind a domain with fraudulent website registration information, has finally been shut down. Ozripoff, a well known Gold Coast extortion racket has done everything in its power to destroy innocent Companies reputation online. They have taken on well known institutions such as Commonwealth bank and ANZ all the way up to Internet powerhouses such as facebook and even Google.

They operated a system whereby they put up nonsensical articles about legitimate organizations in an attempt to discredit their reputation online. Once the Company contacted them they informed them that they had a “verification” process in order to ascertain whether the claims against the Company were true or not. They conducted this process by referring them to a 3rd party “legal’ organization known as Consumer Advocacy Corp (Sometimes Consumer Advocate Corp). FYI to use the name Consumer you must be a Govt agency, which ozRipoff is not. It doesn’t even have an ABN/ACN tax file number, website or address!!! So, this “Company” will review your situation for a nominated fee (this is where the extortion comes in!!!) and once you are verified they remove the posts(s). We all know now that Consumer Advocate Corp and OzRipoff are one and the same.

The sad thing is literally hundreds of ethical businesses have lost out in revenues and have had their clients doubt their credibility, all because of OzRipoff. This article has been purposefully written so anybody who has been damaged by Ozripoff can show their clients that OzRipoff is the real and scam operation and the claims made were nothing but an attempt to steal from reputable organizations.

    I have seen many legitimate complaints on ozripoff. Okay, some may be competitor gripes, but ozripoff never pretends to be judge or jury. They offer a forum for [redacted]s. Sure, some of the posts are poorly written but it's usually the poorly educated that get ripped off and have nowhere to go, can't afford a lawyer etc. Sites like Ozripoff do expose scams and ripoffs. It's a shame that those scammers reported on ozripoff, then have to malign and try to discredit ozripoff on other posts like this, and then refer potential future rip-off clients of theirs to this site to try to get more victims. But a good scammer will always know how to scam naive victims. Go, ozripoff, keep exposing the fraudsters, scammers and cons.

    I also just noticed this same poster lists his or her location, alternately as 'Italy' or 'United States'. So, who then, is the liar / scammer?

    Be up front about who you are and where you are from.

    ...oh and they're also from ACT, Australia (as well as Italy and the USA).

    So the original poster who calls themselves, Oz Ripoff Scam, is for some reason on the run in a number of countries...Australia, Italy, USA...or simply falsely representing themselves on this site.

    And they expect us to believe their claims or statements on this site are credible?

    Nice try, scammer!
