Perhaps you noticed the Rip Off Report that has been placed under our business name Lindquist Investigation Services. What you don't know is that this organization is a criminal Extortion SCAM!
This is a warning to anyone out there who is considering becoming involved with "Ed Magedson" of Ripoffreport.com or posting on it. He is a SCAMMER and Extortionist and I have total proof below.
Basically, he set up Ripoffreport.com to extort money unethically. When someone posts a complaint, it can never be removed, even if the poster requests or demands it. Instead, they are referred to an arbitration program that costs thousands of dollars! That is pure extortion. There is no logical reason to ask a poster to pay thousands of dollars just to remove his own post on a website. Legitimate sites allow the poster to remove their own posts, or will gladly remove it per their request. http://www.rexxfield.com/ripoffreport-com-victims-support-group.php
Anyone can put up a site and demand extortion. But it's highly unethical and an obvious SCAM. It's a loser way to make money as well. Such people have no ethics, conscience, morals and are sociopaths and criminals. That is exactly what Ed Magedson is. http://ripoffreportscam.com/
