The Real Rip-Off Report

Ed Magedson calls himself an advocate. His enemies call him an extortionist

And you only get to fight back if you pay.

Magedson's critics believe it's clearly extortion — a point they've hammered hard in recent lawsuits.

"If it was just a bulletin board where he's posting complaints without editing or embellishing them, then he'd have a defense," says Christopher Sharp, a Florida-based attorney who is suing Magedson's company on behalf of a Colorado company that provides training courses in finance, real estate, and the stock market. (Sharp's claim recently survived Magedson's attempt at dismissal thanks to an appeals-court decision based on the Communications Decency Act.)

"But it's pretty clear that he writes posts himself," Sharp says, a point Magedson denies. "And if you ask him to take them down, he says, 'Just join my corporate advocacy program.'

"I have to tip my hat to him," Sharp says. "He knows how to run an extortion scheme."


Magedson's critics will tell you that he's only in it for the money, and public records offer some evidence that finances matter more to Magedson than he likes to admit.

There's an e-mail Magedson wrote to a class-action attorney several years ago. The attorney had contacted him about working together to help the clients on the site — but walked away when Magedson asked him for $800,000.

There's the fact that, despite Magedson's posturing, neither of his two corporations has ever been a not-for-profit, which is the case with the Better Business Bureau, his chief competition. He sells his book for $21.95, he gets paid by attorneys for "advertising" after he finds them clients, and his site has plenty of advertisers — yet he's still asking for donations via PayPal.

And then there's the case of a pizza deliveryman named John Unger. New Times profiled Unger in 2001 after he sued Pizza Hut over a host of allegations. He even claimed that his bosses made him pick up crystal meth while on the job.

As it turns out, Magedson had helped Unger tell his story to the media. Magedson also hooked Unger up with his own lawyer, Maria Crimi Speth.

The case eventually settled. But not before some damaging facts came to light — facts that, even today, are in the court file in Pinal County.

And it's not just the transcripts of Magedson's calls to a Pizza Hut executive threatening him with media coverage and a fat class-action lawsuit if he didn't give Unger $200,000. Those don't paint Magedson in the best light, but threatening businesses is an admitted part of his shtick.

Taking a victim's settlement money is not. But as the court records show, Unger told his psychiatrist that he'd signed a contract with Magedson, promising him 50 percent of any settlement he got in the case. (Magedson denies the 50 percent figure, although he admits that he did stand to take a percentage.)

Reports from the psychiatrist, filed as evidence in the case, show that the situation between Magedson and Unger got ugly as the case dragged on.

"There was a lengthy discussion about the threats Ed has made," the psychiatrist reported. "[Unger] reported he has been up and e-mailing back and forth with Ed."

The psychiatrist suggested to Unger that he should just turn off the computer every night at 9. "There was a conversation about cult behavior, of how the person in power gets his followers tired by keeping them from getting enough sleep and then the person is too tired to be thinking for themselves." Unger agreed, the shrink wrote, that "this is what has been happening." He decided to have no more contact with Magedson.

In Magedson's defense, even the angry John Unger admitted that he had first suggested upping Magedson's fee because he'd been so happy at the way Magedson had championed his case. And Magedson's attorney, Speth, says that she believes Magedson is only interested in money because he needs it to keep fighting for his cause.

From his appearance, he's clearly a guy who doesn't care about expensive things. His beloved dog is a mutt. He drives a Chevy Malibu. It would clearly be an upgrade for him to shop at the Gap.

"I laugh when people say he's an extortionist, and he's money-hungry," Speth says. "He wants to make enough to keep the Web site going. He cares about what it's doing — not what it's making."

Speth admits, however, that Magedson's willingness to take money from companies is not a simple matter. "I agree it complicates the issue," she says. "I absolutely and completely disagree that it's extortion — or that there's anything wrong with it."


The trouble with making sense of the riddle that is Ed Magedson is that he's not obsessed with truth; — he's obsessed with winning arguments. And so his story changes. Or there are exceptions. Or caveats.

One of the biggest caveats is Steve Miller, Magedson's sworn enemy. Magedson will tell you he's never sued anyone, but he did sue Miller in Maricopa County Superior Court. (He dropped the suit two months later.) He will also say that he never blocks a business owner from posting a rebuttal to a complaint, but he admits he made an exception in Miller's case.

Great article Sarah. As the scourge of Defamation/Slander/ Complaint sites like Ripoff, and several others, still exist. Here are 5 TIPS on what people can do:

1)WRITE POLITICIANS, SEARCH ENGINES, ADVERTISERS, and the FTC.

A long time ago right after the internet was invented, American politicians flubbed, and passed the now outdated, law:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Section_230_of_the_Communications_Decency_Act

Because of this law, websites, to this day, have been able to commit the equivalent of economic terrorism against individuals and small businesses. Write politicians. If they don’t reply or help, then write a few scathing complaints about them on ripoff and elsewhere, and show them the unedited unexamined complaint they now have. This may get their attention.

Also, in addition to adjusting the botched 230, NEW laws about hosting internet defamation need to be created, on both the state and federal levels. The minute these new laws pass, (locally and nationally), these sites will collapse.

Ditto for the major search engines. The slander/ defamation sites get all their power from the links they derive from the search engines. Without the search results, their visibility would end instantly. The search engines are why there is so much grief is passed along.

Contact people at the search engines and ask them to delink results from such abusive websites. Get the names of the people you speak to. If they don’t help, write a complaint about them too.Also, make a database of all the companies advertising on these sites. Websites that allow anonymous people to post whatever they want about anyone, and do not investigate the accusation and verify for accuracy, and then do not remove posts, deserve to be shut down.

There needs to be extreme public pressure on "Do No Evil" Google to stop linking to these particular sites.And someone, hopefully, will put together a successful class action, Federal RICO charges (for serial extortion) Also be sure ask the search engines to implement the de-link policy that has been recently adopted by Europe:

http://www.theguardian.com/technology/2014/may/13/right-to-be-forgotten-eu-court-google-search-results

Here is the link to complain to the FTC

https://www.ftccomplaintassistant.gov/#crnt&panel1-1

2)DON’T’ PAY AND DON’T RESPOND

Again, follow the money. If the website uses the extortion model to make money, create a large database of people victimized by these sites presently or in the past, and email blast them not to pay. Follow up. If the web site uses the advertising model to make money, then start a campaign and/ or petition against all their advertisers.

Write each advertiser politely that they are advertising with an evil website that harms people’s reputations and does not remove posts. If you get no response, then complain on 5-6 websites about them. See how they like it. They are just as vulnerable as you are. People will get the message. Shut off the money spigot to these sites.

Why people are gullible enough to pay protection money and subsidize these sites is beyond comprehension.The funding has to stop. Also, email your list of victims not to respond to the posts, and give them tips on how to fight back. When you respond on these sites, a flame war starts and that is good for the defamation site and it’s search engine value. If everyone refused to pay and post, these sites would cease to exist.

3)SUE, SUE, AND SUE AGAIN. Sure you may lose, but if you lose you still win. These sites don’t want you to sue, because it takes up huge amounts of their time and energy. But they need to be spending their time in court and on lawyers, not devising new schemes to torment and defame people like you. Imagine if the lawsuits to Ripoff quadrupled next year? Even a psychopath has to decide if it’s worth it to terrorize the public. You may also want to consider organizing a class action lawsuit using your database of those victimized.

4)HACK & SPAM. This is not legal, so we cannot recommend hacking or spamming these sites. But if you personally know a hacker or spammer, let him know your story, he may sympathize with you. A website that is hacked or spammed massively, would experience acute downtimes and a loss of time and money.

5)CREATE NEW IDEAS AND LET EVERYONE KNOW ABOUT THEM.

You are not helpless. If just a few dozen people take strong action, these sites will only exits for a few months until they are sued to bankruptcy. The government does not put up with internet bullying, terrorizing children, or copyright infringement, but for some reason they have dropped the ball with adult individuals and small businesses who are slandered online. You can help change that.

How a website sadists and bullies, can stay alive and thrive even in Osama bin Laden style hide outs remains perplexing. We cannot advocate violence, but it is amazing that no crazy person has yet tracked down these evil folks.If I were them, I would quit while ahead, take a long vacation of ones choice. If anyone knows people who work for and help these companies, you may want educate them about the evil they are working for, and the danger they put themselves by working there.

Michael Roberts (commenting as Ripoff Report Victims below) commercialized an injection source code - called “Google-cide” -- a campaign designed to scare parents of children defamed online into purchasing the services offered by the Roberts online reputation enterprise launched on 2007.

Prior to publishing my findings on an automated cyber bullying campaign launched by Michael Roberts Rexxfield and his co-conspirators, a journalistic investigation into the Tracey Richter murder trial (Michael Roberts ex-wife) after being threatened with arrest in 2011 if I set foot in Iowa.

According to court documents, I discovered financial ties between multiple Prosecution witnesses and that some witnesses were still employed by Michael Roberts (a fact the prosecution knew or should have known). I understood the institutionalized repertoire of serial defamation, vexatious litigation, and death threats have all be leveled against me in a futile attempt to force him to retreat from my stated goal.

The prosecutor, Michael Roberts mentions in Iowa, is his personal friend Ben Smith, who prosecuted Michael Roberts estranged ex-wife for murder. You can watch one of my journalistic video's here:

FYI -- if anyone is looking for more information about Darren Chaker, please try to be patient -- he's currently serving time in federal prison, so that makes it kind of hard for him to respond to emails:

http://www.fbi.gov/houston/press-releases/2013/man-sentenced-to-federal-prison-for-bankruptcy-fraud


However, the judge who sent Chaker to prison was smart enough to recommend some much-needed mental health counseling for the guy, so hopefully when (and if) he gets out, he'll be a nicer person.

Google-Cide

Darren M Meade, of Kairos-Meade, announced publication of its Internet investigation teams report on legal challenges issued by Rexxfield; Rexxfield’s majority partners, and its founder Michael Roberts.

[Case Numbers: 30-2011-00468719; 30-2012-00557149; 1:11-CV-00169-DN]

According to court documents, a meeting occurred on 1-28-2011 between Rexxfield partners in which Michael Roberts and Paul Portelli conspired to cast Ripoff Report in a false light and accuse Ripoff Report of “extortion” through a systematic Internet smear campaign (page 67).

Certified court reporters transcripts allege Rexxfield’s plan to usurp the revenue stream of the most widely recognized online consumer advocacy website (RipoffReport.com) and launch its own replacement ‘platform' (page 73 of transcript).

According to court documents, Rexxfield partners discuss a public relations fear campaign that would help them sell their reputation management services to worried parents.

“I would love to run an underground campaign that says, ‘Google is trying to destroy your reputation,’” an executive on the call is heard saying. “I like the idea of, ‘the more popular you are, the more dangerous it is,’ and giving people the scare tactic of, ‘the more exposure you have … the faster it is for your enemies to attack you.’”

“I think there’s a whole other campaign where we can break the parents,” the executive continued. “Send them a picture of their kid with a gun in his mouth -- Google did it. ‘Little Johnny is going to commit Google-cide. Can you stop it?’” (Court audio here)

According to court documents, Rexxfield an online reputation management company, Michael Roberts had commercialized an injection source code. The code purportedly offered consumers negative report removal from private webservers including Ripoff Report and Google online property BlogSpot. Recent Fox News exclusive had also exposed a plan called “Google-cide” -- a campaign designed to scare parents of children defamed online into purchasing the services offered by the new online reputation enterprise. Experts cited by Fox News has said altering websites by injecting source code is illegal.

Meade said that he had begun an unrelated investigation into Roberts & Portelli in February 2011. Meade's, investigation caused him to speak with Ed Magedson of Ripoff Report, in December of 2012. That conversation led to Kairos-Meade, receiving a copy of Michael Roberts, March 11, 2011 alleged extortion attempt, “That allowed us to connect the dots from Roberts / Portelli’s alleged extortion conversation on January 28, 2011.

According to court documents, Meade in August of 2011 had the opportunity to speak directly to the United States District Court Central District of California and address Honorable Cormac J Carney for case number SACR 07-00249-CJC at the sentencing hearing for two of the partners in Rexxfield. Meade provided details of the organizational structure of the ORM entities and a two-step process of coupling the creation and posting of online defamatory materials in a fee-for-service of removing of the content from online consumer advocacy websites.

According to court documents, Meade said once he discovered the technology was hacking and what its implications were, he made it his mission to warn the public about the dangers this technology poses in the form of automated cyber bullying and free speech. He also understood the institutionalized repertoire of serial defamation, vexatious litigation, and death threats have all be leveled against him in a futile attempt to force him to retreat from his stated goal.

They can serve him via public notice if he cannot be found.  I have used the techniques to get service that I paid > $3,000 for but kept being told I had to come back and fix yet something else in my car.  Only after using his techniques did the dealership act.  I had tried conventional means.  didnt work.  I recommend his site and techniques, used honestly to get bad businesses to deal properly with their customers.  He may be whatever you want to call him personally, I didn't even know his name before today, but I am grateful to him for the info.

Decent people who have read New Times for years, such as myself, do not ascribe to hate speech which might bring about violence and death. Has 'NewTimes' thought about what they have begun allowing in the comment section?

 

It is legitmate to voice a difference of opinion even among virulent supporters of differing views but comments based on creating a gale of anger and death threats is flat-out reprehensible.

 

The arguer tries to sway opinion in a negative way by mentioning undesirable things about the subject that are irrelevant to the issue. eg. "Stan should be fired. He yells at his kids and cheats on his wife!"

Hello,

If you are willing, would you please make your visitors aware of our attempt to organize victims of RipOffReport.com in order to put enough pressure on Google, Yahoo and other search engines to completely de-index RipOffReport.com from search results. Although Ed Magedson is a heartless opportunist, if it weren't for the search engines he would be irrelevant to the rest of the world.

my best friend's ex and his new wife put the address and phone number of the home of his young children on a nasty and untrue posting about his wife on this site. i fear for her children's lives now because everyone knows she is a single mom alone, she was pregnant and other kids where under 3 when he left her. if anything happens to those kids I will be sure to let the local news know that the info was on this site. this site is disgusting, they put her email plead to them on the page itself for everyone to see and refuses to remove the personal info. She uses an alias now, in a few months court date to change her name.

I posted about a scam on ripoff report in good faith. Ripoff Report gave my details to the company and they posted that I committed serious crimes, made death threats etc-just as a measure of revenge. They posted a comment urging everyone to harass me, posted my mobile and work number. after threats of physical violence were made I literally begged the editor to remove the comment and my contact details. I did not receive a reply. I have an unusual name and had a responsible high level position. I lost my job.

I am now suing, not ripoff report but google for refusing to remove the links. I do not live in the US and the CDA does not apply here. Some of the period covered by my lawsuit predates the libel tourism act. I recently discovered that google removed links to ripoff reports about a high profile firm in my country without having to go through this lawsuit and I think a couple of companies paid off the ed to remove the links from google. I guess we will find out at discovery.

It will hit the media soon and I will post a link here.

These animals are posting lies calling me a child molester. There has never been any accusations like that in my life but this RipoffReport crew of extortionists think that they can extort money from me. What is most likely to happen here is that someone will just hunt these animals at RipoffReport down and kill them all along with their affiliates. There how's that for freedom of speech you filthy whores.

You know, if my name was Darren Chaker and if I had lots of very embarrassing information in my background that I wanted to hide from public view, I would probably be VERY careful about posting a bunch of garbage and lies about others.

Also, Public Records from Gingras' state bar record which is lengthy. www.jaburgwilk.com/ Of course a few words (and pictures shopping) about Gingras' wife, Stephanie Gingras are soon to come too.

David Gingras, who still appears to hold himself out to be part of law firm of Jaburg Wilk , is in house counsel to Ripoff Report. http://bmhm.com/attorney/David...

Gingras was charged with sexual conduct with a minor, some may call child molestation. See below link to court record. Although the case was dismissed, it was NOT dismissed because Gingras was innocent, but only because the appellate court found the State took too long to arrest him.

What's almost as disturbing is the fact Jaburg Wilk deals with family law matters and it appears they failed to perform a basic record search that would have shown Gingras' alleged past while in law school. Local and national news has investigated Gingras’ company for extortion. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v...http://www.superiorcourt.maric...

www.clickanerd.com/jw-redirect... - is the old jaburg and wilk sucks dot com. The issue of David Gingras being a child molester is juicy but not the real story. Ed Magedson had this employee named James Rogers. James Rogers was ordered by Ed Magedson to create fake Yahoo and Google email accounts and then post fake complaints on ROR using these fake accounts. I have this admission on tape. You can listen to this confession at the above URL. It is my intent to call all of Magedson's other victims on his CAP aka extortion program and let them listen to the recordings. Everyone has been trying to prove this, I have succeed at proving that Ed authors reports, pays people to make up reports and shakes them down. I have filed a claim in Federal Court in Phoenix Arizona in Judge Wake's Court. I intend to prove that Ed Magedson is engaging in Wire Fraud and his actions are both Criminally and Civilly actionable. If you have been screwed by Ed Magedson, I would like to hear your story. Call me at: (254) 690-6373 or email me at Shawn@ClickaNerd.com. I beg you not to be afraid of this ass clown Magedson. He is just a thug that will sit in front of an Arizona Jury and account for his actions.

Kevin Michael Sianez aka Edward Magedson was charged Friday in Santa Ana Superior Court with 63 criminal counts, including 20 felony counts of grand theft by false pretense. He also is charged with three counts of conspiracy to commit sexual assault on an animal, after detectives discovered the bestiality-seeking Craigslist ads during their investigation.

Prosecutors say he did little or no work on cases after charging clients between 2005 and 2010.

Sianez was an officer in Stanton and Santa Ana from 1979 to 1986.

A phone listing for Sianez was not available.

He is scheduled to be arraigned Monday.

It would be interesting to see how many times Mageson has been in court in his lifetime...He's evidently lost track of how many times now. With so many scrapes with the law, his drug use etc. it's a wonder he hasn't figured out by now how to get along with society... Live and let live. Apparently vindictive for whatever he convinced himself are past injustices towards him...now wanting to circumvent or manipulate the law of the land, hiding behind "free speech" he's set himself up as a government agency and tells the whole world Attorney Generals everywhere, hundreds in the media and police are all his friends, all while killing businesses, defaming and extorting money. With our nations economy in the tank now, someone somewhere should help Mageson seek the psychiatric counseling he so desperately needs, not further burden our judicial system.

Spammed and scammed
Spammed and scammed

Dear Attorney General Terry Goddard,I understand that you are preparing for your run for governor so it is expected that crime fighting has taken a back seat for the past 8 years. Perhaps you successor will pay more attention.

Today I received the below spam from Edward Magedson managing member of Xcentric Ventures, LLC dba Rip-Off Report. As you can see Rip Off Report is suggesting consumers take advantage of the services of a collection agency by the name of The Bitter Buyer. You can also see there is no opt out for this spam.

In researching this issue Mr. Goddard I have found others on the internet have also received these spams so I took it upon myself to take a look at The Bitter Buyer. When I called them today I recorded the conversation.

The domain www.bitterbuyer.com has an owner identity protection through Domains By Proxy (Godaddy). The Corporation The Bitter Buyer Inc is a New York Corporation and is domiciled in Manhattan.

If one looks at the website they will clearly see that this company is a collection agency. They claim to be licensed and bonded. When I checked with the Arizona Department of Financial institutions I can’t find a listing of this company. As you know Mr. Goddard, in order for a collection agency to collect from residents in Arizona or on behalf of Arizona clients, they must be licensed. This license is to insure the client gets remunerated by the agency for collections on its behalf. The license also is for a line of responsibility in the event Arizona consumer’s rights are violated by collection agencies.

During my taped call to The Bitter Buyer I was told that they are a subsidiary of a collection agency, that they themselves are neither licensed nor bonded but they will be doing the work including contacting the alleged debtor. When asked for the name of the collection agency they refused to give it because the owner did not want it released. Mr. Goddard you will find there are about 35 states that have similar licensing laws as Arizona.

The Bitter Buyer said that they were associated with the Rip Off Report and partner with them. That The Rip Off Report refers consumers to The Bitter Buyer who will charge 40% to recover monies allegedly owed to them. They further stated that they have been in business for two months.

If one were to check the internet they will see that The Bitter Buyer is Verified Safe by the Rip Off Report, amazing since they have been in business only two months. Of course The Rip Off Report has a long history of not verifying anything.

Mr. Goodard there are many, many claims of racketeering, extortion and other dubious activities allegedly committed by Mr. Magedson and his criminal associates. Perhaps if you were do something about this travesty of justice before you leave the Attorney Generals Office, you will have strong platform with which to run for Governor. For the moment though you are dead last on my list of who I want to run Arizona.

In the mean time I encourage everyone who has received this email to file a spam report and a complaint with the some agency that might actually protect the consumers you claim you protect. Maybe the Federal Trade Commission or the Maricopa County Attorney. Perhaps with a little digging you might find Edward Magedson and/or his criminal associates have ownership with The Bitter Buyer.
