Sadly, bad news sells.  Some report factual information and others allow anybody to say anything about anybody. is a non profit organization put in place to protect small business owners and consumers from often illegal and always unremovable damaging information listed to a website, chat board or other electronic media.  Many good people have lost Jobs, businesses and even marriages predicated on false information being published to some of these dishonest websites. 

These sites are often designed to capture consumer information at the height of a discrepancy.  Sadly, the consumer doesn't always realize whatever they write cannot ever be removed!  Have you ever written a letter in a moment of dissatisfaction and the following day you were glad you never sent it? 

The momentarily upset consumer says, "I was ripped off"; the business fires back and sadly this is what helps many of these complaint websites to become all too popular. Sought of like the smut magazines if you will... Unfortunately, many of these sites will blackmail businesses and consumers to remove the wrongful and usually anonymous web posts...  Please see our Illegitimate Beware page  for more info on sites to be wary off... These unscrupulous sites are capable of capturing your information and actually posting bad reviews about your business on their own site as a means to drive traffic!  Be careful about posting, visiting or even clicking a link as once they have your info many will use it drive traffic to their site - See Legitimate Sites Page for sites you can trust and will get satisfaction from... 

Some of the better consumer websites are those such as the Better Business Bureau and/or Consumer reports... Even your local Attorney General’s office is a good place to find info on legit vs illegitimate businesses...
