People helping people resolve disputes

No one wants to go into battle alone. Have the power of PeopleClaim behind you. File your claim, engage the public, and get it resolved.

Resolve Your Dispute

  • Refund: $500
  • Phone Replacement
  • An apology

Our 100% Satisfaction Guarantee:

Filing your claim is free! We offer some premium options (gotta pay the bills) but we want you to be 100% satisfied. We offer a no questions asked refund on public posting fees if your claim is not resolved within 90 days.

Will PeopleClaim work for my complaint?
Yes, you can file claims against product or service providers, professionals, and anyone else who has treated you unfairly. You can file against anyone, anywhere in the world, and it takes less then 15 minutes to file. Your claim can amount to as little as one dollar, with no upper limit. Non-monetary claims can be filed too.
How it works
  • Submit your claim. (Takes 5-7 minutes.)
  • We deliver it to the other party with your proposed terms of resolution.
  • They can accept, reject, make a counteroffer, or request more information.
  • If unresolved after 10 days your claim can be posted for public review and comment – and helpful settlement recommendations from our growing community of public mediators. Your claim remains posted until you're 100% satisfied.
Why it works
Public posting can provide a powerful incentive for resolving your claim. Our public mediators compete to find the best solution, offering disputing parties practical ideas for resolution. Crowdsourced solutions reflect community standards of fairness and can open a path to settlement.

When the public speaks, businesses listen.
