Amazon sued the authors of fake reviews
Amazon continues its campaign against fake reviews. The company sued 1114 people who were offering writing extremely positive reviews of products as a service. Similar offers are often offered at the platform for fast digital services Fiverr at a price of $5. Users who Amazon sued, have provided fake positive reviews of different products that are not purchased and used.
This is not the first case brought by Amazon in relation with fake reviews – earlier this year the company has taken legal action against several sites dedicated to the same type of services. Fake reviews on Amazon are not a new problem, but their discovery within the site is not as easy as one would believe, since they are unevenly distributed.
