Hello -Name Omitted-
The day that posted I got a email saying that complaint could be made to disappear for a fee.
Basically ripoffreport is a ripoff. They plant stories and then extort money from their victims.

To put this issue at further rest, note that "Ripoff Report" aka "Bad Business Bureau" (BBB ripoff much?) has 43 complaint reports at the Better Business Bureau (yes, the real one). In contrast, Five Star Soap (the business name that Cal Ben uses officially) has NONE.
Here's a little insight from someone who's dealt with them previously (2010)...
"It seems to me that the real rip-off here is this organization Ripoff Reports. They claim to be advocates of good business practice yet post anonymous claims against any business as they are received. No verification, no investigation, no justification. They go so far as to admit this on their main page: "While we encourage and even require authors to only file truthful reports, Ripoff Report does not guarantee that all reports are authentic or accurate." They further state that they never remove reports, presumably even when those reports are false, slanderous, or just plain dishonest. Yet a quick search on Google shows several companies that guarantee Ripoff Report removal for a fee."
In short: This is debunked.
