MEDIATE.COM IS NOT AFFILIATED WITH
Please understand that there is NO affiliation whatsoever between Mediate.com, founded in 1996, and a directory business called "Mediation.com."
The other business does not display who is behind the business (likely due to other fraud allegations and no mediation expertise.) They also do not display their prices.
If you review the linked materials, you will quickly become familiar with their sales techniques, their misappropriation of 1000s of ADR professional names (relaying those intended contacts to their paying clients) and their inappropriate indication of a relationship with Mediate.com, all despite two Cease and Desist Demands that this behavior stop.
Beware of Mediation.com
