My review of KlearGear.com

November 18, 2013 – 2:20 pm by John

Tim Cushing of Techdirt.com wrote about the now-infamous case of the Utah couple who were fined $3500 for writing a negative review of KlearGear.com. They refused to pay, which prompted KlearGear to follow through on its threat to send their debt to a collections agency, thereby ruining that couple's credit rating. Read his short article; the details of the depth of KlearGear's depravity are hard to believe, but they serve a salutary reminder that not all malicious, psychopathically predatory monsters find their way into government service. Also read Ken White's post about it at Popehat.com.

The purpose of this post is merely to help spread the word about KlearGear's immorality and criminality, in the hope that others will do the same, resulting in the existence of so many web pages about their pure evilness that these pages will overwhelm the positive or neutral search results for KlearGear.com, so that anyone who ever seeks to learn anything about KlearGear will discover what depraved, predatory psychopaths ran that place (and provided it legal services). Basically, I aim to help amplify the Streisand effect as much as possible.

  5. Hey -

    as the husband and the person that got nailed with this charge ... I appreciate the effort and time you put into this. I'm going to pass this info on to our legal team (yes, TEAM) that's going after these people. :)

  6. Ack - I see I'm way late in posting the above (also just stumbled across this story). Glad to see the folks here and on other sites are doing some good detective work to nail this conman, whoever he is!

  8. Thank you as well, and John I'm sorry to hear about how awful these people have been.

    We recently discovered that "KlearGear" stole a bunch of product photos from our web site and are attempting to pass off what they're "selling" as our product (even infringing on our TM's)

    I've tried calling all those phone numbers (thank you BlagNet) and unfortunately just keep running into dead ends.

  9. @Chris:

    Exactly. There is NO WAY the only criminal activity these predators are involved in is fraud and misuse of credit reporting agencies. They seem like the Prenda of online retailers. Every state attorney general who has aspirations of higher political office—in other words, every state attorney general—who might possibly have jurisdiction over KlearGear is going to look long and deep into their business and financial records to find every piece of dirt and every shady practice they can. I predict they will find a lot.

  10. I think it's going to work out Karma wise. They are going to lose business from this. They are going to lose endorsements from this and they now have a lawsuit to defend. Now for the rest of time, anytime someone wants to google kleargear to check them out, ALL they will see is this stuff about their rip-off attempt! :) Major Fail by Kleargear!

  12. Here is my speculation for what it's worth. I think you are correct .. This is some kind of front for an illegal operation. My guess is drugs. If I were going to ship drugs into the US. I would setup a online merchant selling cheap crap that comes in all different sizes and weights. I would hire four or five morons to run the legit business and who would know nothing about the illegal shipping. Of course that is weakness to the plan .. you need real stupid people to run the legit business - so they don't ask too many questions. My guess is one of the idiots on the legit side was a bit too vindictive and spiteful for his own good and blew the operation's cover. And now all you are going to find are ghosts and the morons .. of course this is all just speculation .. but great detective work

  13. I wonder how this made it to the credit reporting agencies? Can anyone just make a negative credit claim.. even unreal or fake people?

    By makery on Dec 19, 2013

  14. @makery,

    Apparently so. That's what a lot of people at Techdirt and Popehat wondered. The credit reporting agencies are partly culpable in the Palmers' mess too, as is Ripoff Report for running what appears to be a scam of some sorts: demand hundreds or thousands of dollars from customers who have posted reviews there when they want to take their review down later.

  15. Howdy Do John.

    Its a REAL shame what happened to you and yours and DAMN it is, anybody with a mediocre sense of right versus wrong ought to be pissed off ultra large on your behalf. These scumbags are amazing large basterds that need to get slapped stupid ... pronto.
