TripAdvisor and the Pedophile

TripAdvisor’s President and CEO Stephen Kaufer has been accused of being a Pedophile often spelt as Pedofile or Paedofile. Stephen Kaufer admitted to these accusations and was taken into custody 

We do NOT know if this is true, because it was sent to us in an email from a completely unvalidated source. However just like TripAdvisor we can’t see the harm in posting comments from completely unvalidated and anonymous sources.

Yes we do have a filter in place, but it obviously doesn’t work, and we also have a specialist double check all the comments we get, but he just hasn’t got a clue.. A bit like TripAdvisor.

So in a couple of days this completely unvalidated comment, probably from an ex TripAdvisor employee, or one of his jealous neighbours, will be high up there on the search engines, claiming Stephen Kaufer has admitted to being a Pedophile..


Back to our story, of how TripAdvisor approved and posted an unvalidated 1 time review from an equally unvalidated user that accused Stefano as being a pedophile..


Stephen TripAdvisor Kaufer Pedophile


This post was taken from numerous online resources


Stefano and his family tried to contact TripAdvisor numerous times to have the review removed. Emails, letters and phone calls went unanswered. TripAdvisor completely ignored the issue.

Stefano who at the time had been manager at the Hotel Ocean Pondorosa for almost 7 years, went into severe depression. He lost his job, and was on suicide watch for a good 2 months.

Stefano’s wife continued trying to get TripAdvisor to remove the ( unvalidated and damaging ) review for a whole year, and for a whole year she was ignored by TripAdvisor.

As a last resort she contacted us, asking if we could help in anyway. We posted screenshots of the obvious fake and life destroying review and, surprise surprise within TWO HOURS TripAdvisor removed the review, and acts like nothing ever happened.

TripAdvisor RUINED the life and reputation of a hard working husband and father, by approving and posting this unvalidated review claiming Stefano was a PEDOPHILE!!

The unvalidated reviewer was listed as Emma Hamil, it goes without saying that this person never posted again, it was just one of millions fake accounts on TripAdvisor

Yet another example of the damage TripAdvisor causes by allowing and posting unvalidated reviews / lies

TripAdvisor Pedophile accusation


Back in June 2012 our friends at contacted Stephen Kaufer, who himself is a father and asked how he would feel, and what he would do, if someone plastered the www with lies about him being a Pedophile?. We also asked him what his wife Caroline would have said / thought if she knew TripAdvisor was completely ignoring the plea’s of a family that was being destroyed by TripAdvisor. They are still waiting for his reply ( or his lawyer’s ) and they and we will post it as soon as they hear back from him.

    Geez, a father himself. Surely he would understand the hell that guy must have gone through, not to mention his family.
    It’s WRONG that any site should be allowed to post such damaging information about someone without at least checking it’s authenticity.
    I stoped using Tripadvisor because there was just way too much conflicting information about the same hotel or restaurant.
    Keep up the good work.
