The website ripoffreport.com was established by Ed Magedson who is the current editor-in-chief of the site. The main agenda behind the creation of the site was to address the grievances of the people and the organizations that felt wronged by some individual or some business. In due course of time the popularity of the site has skyrocketed and has now become the voice of the aggrieved. The site became operational in 1998 and is headquartered in Tempe, Arizona.
There are many features of the site that are responsible for it becoming one of the most feared sites in the entire online world. It is a well known fact that once a ripoff report has been registered negatively about you or your business then it would have a deep harmful effect on your business and your reputation. The one thing that really matters is that the people and the organizations that give great importance to the online world willingly or unwillingly pay great regards to the reports that are published on the site. Once your name or the name of your business has been listed on any kind of reports on the Ripoff report it means that you would have to take extra steps in order to clear your name.
One of the key features of the site is that once a report has been published on the site it cannot be removed. In fact even if the reconciliation has been reached between the two sparring parties the reports once published cannot be removed even by the author of the reports. However there are other ways out to clear your name.
