Re: Fake reviews on Amazon

When looking at new iPhone 7 cases I came across a guy who gave a 5 star review and talked about how great it fit. I then looked at his other reviews and it was the same review copy and pasted for other cases all on the same day. I do not know how you can test 20+ cases at the same time for a phone that had not even come out yet.

Not sure if everyone heard about it, but Amazon banned reviews by people who got products for free. Not sure how much it will help at this point since most ratings are already skewed.

Here's a website that might help. It's called Fakespot.com.

All you have to do is copy and paste the URL into the search engine and it gives you a report on which reviews are fake or nor.
