    Is it okay to post names, email addresses and phones numbers directly related to a fraudulent company for sake of exposure? 

    These would be names, email, and numbers used for business.

      Don't know right off, but if you email HP staff, they can tell you quickly.

      That being said, there's nothing like good word of mouth to tell people about scams. If not acceptable on HP, I'd blog it everywhere I could, especially subject related blogs.

      Hope this helps.

      You would do best to talk with a lawyer before you take any actions such as this.  Declaring fraud has very specific legal conditions for it to be true, and done improperly, you'll be sued.

    I would be very careful about doing that, and have absolute proof and full disclousure of the fraud before considering it.

    Its one thing to post an opinion, quite another to publish a "Statement of fact"

    I'd be very, very careful about that, and I wouldn't recommend doing it on HubPages.

    Its best to take advantage of sites like ripoffreports.com and theconsumerist.com also BBB online

    If its publicly available information that could be found on their site and not found via a private or privileged relationship than you an dyour host are technical safe for posting that

    As far as calling a company a Fraud - as long as you are open that it is your opinion and true experience you would not actually lose a suit held against you BUT most companies can afford to be an annoyance and damge and fight back for such actions and it is quite a hassle

    So if that is your real name, I wouldnt use it.

    That is my undersatnding of teh ethics and law of teh situation. Check out "cash for gold scam" at teh cosnumerist, cash4gold sued a whistleblower and it has been quite a hardship for her although she was most likely not guilty of any fraud, libel or slander
