Possible implications of a report on Complaints Board
ComplaintsBoard.com, according to its explanations about itself, aims for better professional practices in the use of its platform.
It states categorically, that users should not post lies on its platforms.
Though it creates a window for reviewing content before it posts it, ComplaintsBoard.com does not verify for truth.
If the reviewing processes goes on successfully, the affected party stands to lose much. Find a possible listing below.
Loss of patronage
This is not the first time we are telling you that a listing on an online reporting site like ComplaintsBoard.com could affect your business in many possible ways.
The wide reach and authority of ComplaintsBoard.com ensures that a listing of your business reaches many.
Any report here is quickly crawled by search engines for all and sundry before you know it.
The many reports and reviews about ComplaintsBoard.com on the internet major on this information.
Many of the submissions made on the website are by offended customers to the disadvantage of business owners and employees.
It has led to the continual loss of business patronage among many businesses.
Though unfavorable for many businesses, this approach has put many on their toes and effectively made them to apply best practices.
Loss of jobs
Large amounts of reports on ComplaintsBoard.com are against the poor services of some workers. Offended and malicious alike customers take advantage of this platform to report them.
If taken seriously by their employers, the employees could lose their jobs. Employers often take this step to save their businesses.
The employees become the victims in this sense.
As we will show later, ComplaintsBoard.com contacts reported organizations to reach an agreement on resolving the reports.
If the reported party turns out to be an employee without contact information, they stand to lose their job.
Alternatively, ComplaintsBoard.com can reach the organization directly regarding its employee. This can spell doom for the employee.
The very reason that the employee was cause for the organization’s mention on the internet is enough reason for a sack.
ComplaintsBoard.com reveals that it searches the internet for the contact information of organizations and individuals mentioned on its site.
It contacts them directly before they even know about it.
Loss of capital
In a world where businesses are run with loans, a negative review online can cause a long chain of consequences.
In a country like the US, where businesses apply for as much as $600 billion on loans each year, a business decline is not something one could afford.
A negative portrayal of a business would not only cause loss of possible profit, it would also throw one into avoidable debt.
Do we really need ComplaintsBoard.com?
This seems like a valid question. The answer: Yes, and No.
Yes because it makes business owners and other persons understand the need to be upright in their business practices.
A look at the review pane of ComplaintsBoard.com would show that many persons have benefitted from it.
No because the site has really caused losses to businesses.
The authority that ComplaintsBoard.com wields is enormous to say the least. It has been beneficial to some extent we could say. However, the negative impact it causes outweighs its benefits to a large degree.
This is why you should not delay to get your name off ComplaintsBoard.com as soon as possible.

The site instructs reporters to submit their negative experience in detail.
It is common to see repeated reports against one person or organization on this site.
The reporting process also involves the submission of photos and videos of the experience. (A look at the site shows that they allow very few media files).
The site then goes on to verify the email of the reporter.
This process is mainly to ensure that the reported party can reach them.
What happens after users submit complaints?
The time between the submission of a report and its eventual publishing can range from a couple of minutes to about 48 hours.
They do not review content at weekends.

The Complaint Resolution Process
ComplaintsBoard.com has a complaints resolution process in its system that enables it mark off complaints.
Note that this does not mean that the reporter or ComplaintsBoard.com has deleted the report from the website.
The report will remain visible on both ComplaintsBoard.com and search engines, howbeit; it will be marked as resolved.
This is a slight difference that ComplaintsBoard.com has from other complaint submission platforms.
The other side
While it is fair that we celebrate the usefulness of a site like ComplaintsBoard.com, it is also important that we understand the other sides to it.
Its posting process continually puts businesses and service providers at a disadvantage.
It shows that anyone, including and especially competitors, can take out their revenge on an organization.
They can also blackmail or sabotage an organization and get away with it.
This also means that a platform like ComplaintsBoard.com has the potential to put well set-up businesses in trouble for no fault of theirs.
They would also be able to do very little to nothing about it.
Unfortunately, you cannot sue ComplaintsBoard.com to court on the grounds of the report posted on their platform since it is a third-party posting site. It is immune.
Contrary to what some might believe, taking a post off ComplaintsBoard.com is not impossible.
We would show you how to take a legal route through the process and hope that you would find it helpful.
If, however, it turns out that you still need help with a ComplaintsBoard.com removal, Remove Reports can help you out.
The Legal environment of ComplaintsBoard.com
ComplaintsBoard.com provides series of legal documents for users to read.
While we would advise that you peek at them, it turns out that most of them are a bunch of repeated information.
We now supply you a summary of all that you can find in the legal pages of ComplaintsBoard.com.
Section 230 of the Communications and Decency Act
As expected, ComplaintsBoard.com mentions this article in its legal framework. Though not explicitly quoted, it turns out to be the spine of ComplaintsBoard.com.
In the most part, Section 230 (since its enactment in 1996 and the explosion of the internet) has been a major factor that has allowed ComplaintsBoard.com to flourish.
It states as follows:
These twenty-six simple words ensures that no one can hold ComplaintsBoard.com responsible for any information it contains.
Court cases against ComplaintsBoard.com on grounds of defamation often fail.
The Digital Millennium Copyright Act
ComplaintsBoard.com responds to requests backed by the DMCA.
Given the general laws of the internet and intellectual trade, copyrights receive special protection.
This is one reason why ComplaintsBoard.com gives priority treatment to cases involving copyrights.
Though not directly involving their input, ComplaintsBoard.com advises against the publishing of reports that are under contract.
If the parties have agreed not to make any details of their transaction public, the reported party can take the other to court.
ComplaintsBoard.com does not hoard the details of its reporters if the reported party intends to contact them.
Step by step guide on Complaints Board Removal
The ComplaintsBoard.com removal process is somewhat easy, and difficult. The process and level of difficulty depends on the circumstances.
ComplaintsBoard.com provides the conditions that would enable them to take down posts.
In some cases, they reveal that they reserve the right to choose to or not to take down posts.
The steps to take in taking down a post (or posts) from ComplaintsBoard.com would depend on the category of the reported individual.
It also depends on the possible implications of the post.
The first category of persons we shall address are those that do not mind a negative review.
These persons can contact the author of the post to resolve the difference.
The resolution process is quite simple.
ComplaintsBoard.com may contact the affected party as shown earlier.
The contacting process also confirms that they have created an account for the affected company or individual.
To clarify the issue, you may leave a comment on the thread.
The comment should show that you are either innocent of the charge or resolved it.
Upon receipt of your comment, the author has about 30 days to repeal your claims.
If they fail to do so, the complaint is marked as resolved.
According to ComplaintsBoard.com, a report against a company should not be a cause for alarm.
What should be important is that the complaint is resolved.
Furthermore, they advise that affected organizations or individuals respond quickly to complaints against them.
This would give them a good rating on the website.
We might as well agree that the site has gotten its popularity courtesy of becoming a rating platform for both individuals and companies.
Not everyone wants to resolve an issue on ComplaintsBoard.com.
Besides, the very thought of having one’s profile on a reputation defamation site is not a good idea.
Hence, it is best that one embarks on a ComplaintsBoard.com removal.
This is also easy and difficult.
We would show you how to go about this in very easy steps.
We would also provide our convenient recommendation.
Firstly, let us ask ourselves, “Is it possible to take down a complaint?”
The answer to that question is a resounding “Yes”.
Howbeit, there are very few ways to achieve that. Find them below.
ComplaintsBoard.com responds to court orders to take down complaints.
Doing otherwise would portray them as breaching the law.
To take advantage of this, ComplaintsBoard.com provides a list of requirements on their DMCA procedure page.
This procedure is the same with other sites. We provide a summary of the procedure with Scamion.com here.
If successful, ComplaintsBoard.com would take down the complaint.
This process also has limitations, as you must have seen from the page.
If the author challenges the decision to take it down with valid proof, ComplaintsBoard.com would restore the post.
As we have revealed earlier, ComplaintsBoard.com edit posts before they publish them.
They do this to remove contents that are inappropriate for public knowledge.
Contents that they remove include:
- Pornographic materials,
- Photos of children,
- Social security number,
- Credit card information,
- Sensitive contact information, etc.
In the event that ComplaintsBoard.com does not do an appropriate editing of contents before posting them, the affected party can contact them to re-edit.
When the details of the post are bound by contract, the affected party can have them taken down.
it means that the parties have agreed not to disclose details to a third party.
When a person goes against the provisions of such contract, he/she bears the responsibility.
In order to take down such content, the affected party would contact the post author.
As we have informed earlier, ComplaintsBoard.com does not take down posts except the affected party asks them to do so with a court order.
In this case, you can sue the author of the post.
They can also pay for damages if they are guilty.
Similarly, you can apply or ask the author to apply for a takedown order that you can send to ComplaintsBoard.com to take down the post.
ComplaintsBoard.com provides its contact email address through which persons can send orders and information to it.
Following up these processes requires some knowledge of the system and some financial commitment.
The legal practitioners would not mind charging you the most they can as they “help” you regain your reputation.
Hence, you may need to be ready to spend an upwards of $1,500. Sometimes procedures can demand so much from you that you may lose track of business.
If this were the case, would you like to resolve the issue? Probably that would save you the time and money.
Though easy, it does not completely save you from having a negative portfolio online.

The suppression method simply involves creating better content for the internet users.
If search engine spiders find the new content as more appealing than the negative content, they would rank it ahead of them.
