I have recently had a nightmare of an experience from a vendor on the internet (which, for now, will remain nameless) selling a trading method for a big chunk of money (>$5000). We are in a heated email battle right now about whether I am entilted to a refund (based on their guarantee) which they say I'm not, but I say I am. Emails have gone as far as they will and it's time for me to take it to the next step. I am filing a complaint w/ the CFTC and SEC ... among other organizations. Anyway, I want to expose what has happened to me. To at least let others know, those who might be interested or potentially thinking of buying this course themselves, what happened to me. Luckily 98% of all correspondence was done through emails and instant messaging. If posted, it would be a long 'story' of emails, but a very eye opening experience about how this vendor treated its customer. It would be a great lesson for others. It would also let people see how this company has treated me and their incredible sting of accusations against me because "it's all my doing." Here's my question ... I have told them if not refunded, I would post my experience , along with all the emails to the internet. I would post to elitetrader, newsgroups, etc. I will post the entire experience, but I would NOT post any information regarding specific trading rules which I signed a non-disclaimer for. I'm not here to do ANYTHING illegal. But, again, the unfolding of events will be very eye opening without telling the details of their trading method. Is there any legal reason I can not or should not do this? They are threating me with "we will file a complaint against you for undue distress, harassment and coercion", "blackmail", and "we can hold you liable for libel, should you chose to carry out your threats. " These quotes are in regards to both posting publically and filing complaints with a list of organziations. Basically, they are trying to take away any rights I have as a consumer. On here, I would simply be posting my experience ... a review of sorts for others to see. Now, this is done all the time ...a big part of elitetrader's webpage is a review section for software/brokers/etc. I see it as I told them that they better make a good business decision on whether they want a customer who feels he has be wronged to tell others. They see it as a "threat". There are 1000s of websites out there for people to rate businness/purchases (cars, books, electronics, just about any purchase). This wouldn't be any different. AOL doesn't sue someone because they post how bad AOL service is. I'm really looking for someone with legal experience if anyone has expeience in this type of matter. Can they hold me liable for telling of my bad expereince.... they would call my claims "lies", but they are not. Is there anything wrong with posting in LOTS of places on the internet to make sure anyone thinking about buying from this vendor and does any kind of search through a search engine, will at least see my expereience which they can then make their own conclusions from? I feel I've been wronged (majorly) ... I've told them I'd make my expereince known publicly ... they can that a threat ... I call it a consumer given right. Any well informed opinions on what I should do regarding posting publically (and/or filing complaints)?
