Ripoffreport.com Complaint

It is our deepest regret that ED Magedson founder of http://Ripoffreport.com Ripoff Report and THE EDITOR of the site has decided to aid those who seek to destroy scamFRAUDalert by providing them a platform for them to publish FALSE and misinformation or whatever nonsense they choose about scamFRAUDalert.

To our disbelief, these are the same group of individuals disseminating FALSE information about Ripoffreport.com – See Youtube Video and with whom Ripoffreport.com have had several lawsuits and court ordered judgments against. We have common enemies ED base on our mission as consumer advocates.

We are referring to the owner(s)/operator(s) of the sites below with whom ED Megadson has allowed to post whatever they choose about scamFRAUDalert which Mr. Megadson had denied posting such garbage in the past. Reason for ED change of heart, SFA refusal to retract Google DMCA replied response.

ED Magedson runs his website http://ripoffreport.com based on biases and enemy list. scamFRAUDalert were never an enemy of Mr. Magedson until we responded to ED DMCA Notice to Google.com. It is our belief that ED Megadson is a wacko eccentric individual.

We at scamFRAUDalert do NOT encourage, engage in or condor such behavior. We POLICE our sites with the highest level of integrity. This is our trademark and we pride our work on this.

From what we’ve seen and have concluded is that ED Magedson d/b/a Ripoffreport.com is attempting to gain competitive advantage by allowing those who seek to destroy scamFRAUDalert to post whatever they want including OUR family member names purchased online. Where do you draw the line ED?

Ripoffreport now include in most subject lines and subject titles” the words “scam” or “fraud.” Not every consumer GRIPE is a FRAUD Mr. Magedson. You need to STOP categorizing consumer complaints as FRAUD.

We too are not perfect. Best of luck ED as we compete going forward and seek a resolution. Simply ED, delete or remove those postings and we would do the same.

How reliable are some Accreditation on the BBB?

Dear Council of  Better Business Bureaus:

scamFRAUDalert is CONCERN organized CRIMINAL SPAMMERS managing our most precious databases are deleting and altering reports on website properties THIS CRIMINAL GANG GROUP are being pay to manage or host. The report published on the Logo4BBB-Business or Charity Name result [Find Business Reviews] regarding PREDATORSWATCH.COM is FALSE.

Our concern is that WE ARE SEEING reports ON THE BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU websites being ALTER, DELETED or just plain FABRICATION (FALSE).

This first came to our attention when we encountered Albert Ahdoot dba Colocation America Corporation.

As we reported, the BBB had graded Colocation America with an “F” and subsequently DELETED the GRADE. The BBB – Las Vegas refusal to make publish our COMPLAINT.

Recently we reported on the site Drivers-Licenses.org and miraculously all the BBB reports for which we had reference got DELETED.

Now we are seeing that the BBB is reporting a toll number (866) 398-1178 we once owned since 2007 and recently had DISCOUNTED approximately ten months ago did belong to the website Predatorswatch.com. THIS IS A FALSE REPORT.

The DELETION and FALSIFICATION of REPORTS on the BBB websites can directly be attributed to a rogue employee within the IT Department or the HOST PROVIDER for which the BBB have entered into a contractual relationship to managed and host BBB websites as the culprits.

Some superuser or an Administrator with access to reports filed is the culprit. This is clearly a THREAT to OUTSOURCING IT services to ROGUE CORPORATION operating on two fronts. Legitimate and Illegitimate.

This is nothing more than ORGANIZED CRIME.

On June 10th, 2013, Global Pharmacy Canada, a fake Internet pharmacy based in Belize, was forced by the Ontario Court of Appeal to shut down offices in Toronto for violating Ontario’s professional pharmacy rules. Global Pharmacy Canada was originally cited by Health Canada for marketing drugs to Canadians that were not of Canadian origin on July 27, 2010. While still in operation, they can no longer maintain offices in Canada.

In a ruling handed down June 10th, the Ontario Court of Appeals rejected an appeal by Global Pharmacy Canada to counter the cease and desist ruling of the Ontario College of Pharmacists for all its business operations in Canada. The ruling described Global Pharmacy Canada’s Ontario operation as “its sales force,” and noted that although the sales, purchases and orders were all processed through the Canadian call center, the drugs were actually fulfilled by an unidentified “Indian pharmacist.” In her judgment, Justice Eileen E. Gillespe remarked “I note that there is no named pharmacist in India. There is no indication in any of the documentation sent to the client who the supplier of the drugs may be, and whether or not these drugs in fact come from an Indian pharmacist as represented, or from a supplier of drugs.”

The National Post reports that the Court of Appeal confirmation of the Ontario College of Pharmacists ruling will be enforced, and Global Pharmacy Canada must cease all operations in Canada, and close their offices in Mississauga, Ontario by June 25th.

In 2010, Health Canada, the Canadian drug agency analogous to the United States’ FDA, issued a warning about Global Pharmacy Canada saying “Products sold at the Global Pharmacy Canada website have not been authorized for sale by Health Canada, and Global Pharmacy Canada is not a licensed pharmacy in Canada. Canadians who have used any products purchased at the company’s website, or are concerned about their health, should consult with their healthcare practitioner.”

Health Canada went even further, warning that so-called “Canadian pharmacies” may not be in Canada at all. “Consumers should also be aware that there is no assurance that all claims made on the internet that a particular site is Canadian and / or a pharmacy, are reliable. Some internet sites may falsely claim to be a Canadian pharmacy and dispense foreign drugs that are unauthorized for sale in Canada.”

Legitscript identifies Global Pharmacy Canada as a “rogue Internet Pharmacy,” and that they are “not a licensed Canadian pharmacy,” warning consumers to avoid contact with them.

In 2012, the Oregonian did a story on Global Pharmacy Canada. They spoke to Portland resident John Horton, founder of Legitscript, as well as Patricia Parker, a local resident who had purchased her medication from Global Pharmacy Canada. They also spoke with the operator of the call center that manages Global Pharmacy Canada’s sales. Patricia Parker originally purchased her blood thinner from Global Pharmacy Canada, but when she found out that Legistscript had classified them as a rogue pharmacy she told the Oregonian “I’m so angry, I’m spitting tacks.”

The Oregonian reported that Legitscript tracked Global Pharmacy Canada’s drug shipment path to Belize where the company is registered, and is part of a network with ties to Azerbaijan and Czech Republic. The operator of Global Pharmacy Canada’s call center, Richard Perko, explained why an Internet pharmacy company based in Belize would use a call center in Canada. “[Americans] don’t like calling India, Singapore, the Philippines or whatever.” Petko claimed to run call center operations for several so-called “Canadian” pharmacies. He explained that “hardly anyone even operates a pharmacy. No one is shipping drugs from Canada. It’s a worldwide business,” reported The Oregonian.
