  • Internet reviews

    The other day I was messing around and googled our company name and I found a "review" on yellow pages regarding our company.
    Read the Aug 23 so called "review" in the link below.

    http://yellowpages.superpages.com/re...res=true&lrv=1



    I found this on Oct 15 and I'm still pi$$ed about it.

    The "reviewer", A.K.A competition states, "& is dishonest. Tie your valuables down if you hire this guy."

    I've lived rich and I've lived dirt poor, but one thing I've ALWAYS had in life is my honesty and integrity, and I don't take kindly to people questioning it.

    I'm pretty sure I know who made this post (perhaps I should buy a septic truck and take ALL your business away. Don't worry I will never buy an excavator. I guess you can continue to dig up lines that don't need to be dug)

    Anyway, why is it someone can just make a nameless faceless "review" on these sites? Heck I made two of the same "review" on the same day and they both got posted. I guess when business is slow I'll just "review" myself (anonymously of course) all day long. He11, I may even elect myself BEST DRAIN CLEANER IN THE WORLD!!!

    This is obviously is no customer of ours. To date the only complaints I've had in the end are price. One little old lady said it's too much and several others have said it's not enough. Have I ever had to go back to a job due to my mistake? Yes, but in the end I have ALWAYS made sure our customers are happy.

    I just don't get why these sites allow anyone to post good/bad info without any recourse on our part. In-fact I don't ever remember giving yellowpages permission to print(if you will) anything about our company.

    Re: Internet reviews

    gene, i know the feeling.

    a few years back i got a negative review from an ebay seller.

    he never shipped the item and i get the negative review. he did that dozens and dozens of times to others too.

    i called ebay and complained. they couldn't remove it or him

    no problem, you will be begging me to come back and then they did

    i doubt that anyone even bothers to read those adds anyways.

    don't worry, the bbb is just as crooked too

    you probably get most of you work from real referrals and this is better than any blind internet review.

    write the yellow page to remove it.

      I'm with you on that! I wonder how many people actually read/believe those reviews???? I doubt many.

      It just bothers me that someone can spew such filth and not be held accountable.

      And who knows maybe his "review" caused me to lose only one job. Each and every job I get literally puts food on our table, coats on our kids, fuel in the van, insurance, taxes, etc.....

        Just write a new review under it saying you have never done any work for this person. I see outfits around me on these yellow page review sites giving themselfs reviews. It's pretty easy to see.

            I had the same thing happen to me! I had a local township call me to inspect jet and clean city lines. A few lift stations and some forced main. The township had a intern field all the quotes” he didn’t know his head from his A$$.

            I ask all types of question he couldn’t answer. I told him when he had more info and specs call me. He never called me… all of a sudden I had a nasty review on merchant circle. I called the town ship and talked to the sani supervisor, he told me they have a different company take care of all the cleaning. And that company hires it out for them as well. Needless to say after a week of calls I was told by the company who I will not name. they will not do sh!t about it. I also found out the intern was the owners son

            Just my little story

                Gene and I get along good, and I gave him some really good advice in a PM when I saw this thread to get that removed.

                If they give him an IP address of the one who posted it, that's even better.
