Pissed Consumer gives people a chance to share their stories, experiences and opinions about companies. Sometimes, however, a person could realize that he/she posted something in error or that some information posted was incorrect. At that point it may be necessary to remove a complaint.
Removing Complaints Posted by You
If you are a Pissed Consumer user, you may have posted a review or a comment on our website only to realize later that you did it in error. It could also happen that you have misrepresented some facts or given incorrect information. If that is the case, you can remove your complaint from the website by taking the following steps:
Send a notarized letter to Pissed Consumer (Consumer Opinion LLC, 1930 Village Center Circle #3-6853, Las Vegas, NV 89134). You must make sure that the notarized letter you are sending includes all the required points:
- a statement that you are the user who posted the information that you now seek to remove;
- a statement that the information previously posted by you was incorrect at the time it was posted;
- your full name, mailing address, email address and signature;
- the URL (address) of the subject post as it appears on PissedConsumer.com;
- a statement that you declare under penalty of perjury that the information provided in this request is true and accurate to the best of your knowledge;
- a legible notary stamp (please make sure we can read commission or id number).
All these points are also listed in paragraph 11 of our FAQ page. You can also submit a notarized letter in a scanned format through the "Contact Us" page. A notarized letter is a document that has been marked with a seal or a stamp indicating that the signature on the document is legitimate. If you want to get your document notarized, you need to sign it in front of a notary public. You will be asked to produce identification to prove that you are who you say you are. Thus, you need to have an official identification with a photograph such as, for example, a passport, a driver license or other government issued ID document. It is imperative that you do not sign the document you want notarized ahead of time because a notary public must watch you signing the document in person. Some notary fees may apply.
PissedConsumer.com reviews all notarized letters submitted. You can find more detailed information following this link https://www.pissedconsumer.com/static/legal-information.html#RemoveContent.
Removing Complaints about You or Your Company
If you would like to remove complaints about you or your company from the Pissed Consumer website, you have the following options:
- Obtain a valid court order for removal of false information and email/mail such a court order to Pissed Consumer.
When obtaining a court order, you may want to consult an attorney to get a better assistance and guidance. A court order must clearly state where exactly the content in question is located on PissedConsumer.com and include the language where a judge specifies that Pissed Consumer must unpublish the content in question. It is important to remember the following:
- a court order must be signed by a judge and filed with the court;
- to obtain a court, a lawsuit needs to be filed first;
- if you are sending us a court order issued by a court in a country other than United States, such a court order must be properly domesticated to meet all the requirements of and to be acceptable by the US judicial system.
- Apply for Legitimacy Verification Program (LVP).
A Third-Party Neutral is an independent attorney who is not employed by Pissed Consumer, but whose firm is contracted with Pissed Consumer to provide attorneys who will serve as Third-Party Neutrals in conformity with the LVP Rules. A decision made by a Third-Party Neutral is based solely on the data included in the Complaint and the Answer. It is important to remember that there are certain limitations as to how often you can use the Legitimacy Verification Program and as to the number of reviews you include in your Complaint.
The LVP utilizes a two-tiered fee structure based on the number of reviews being disputed. All fees are paid directly to a Third-Party Neutral. Pissed Consumer does not participate in payment process in any way. Neither does Pissed Consumer profit from the LVP in any way. Pissed Consumer has established the Legitimacy Verification Program on a completely voluntary basis.
Decisions made by Third-Party Neutrals are final. There is no right of appeal. To find more information, please check our Dispute Resolution (LVP Program) section, our Legal Information page and FAQ.
To check out examples of various types of LVP decisions, please see paragraph 12 of our LVP Rules and Conditions.
If you have been engaged in litigation with Pissed Consumer or have threatened legal action against Pissed Consumer, you may not participate in the LVP.
