I was viewing an ad somewhere, maybe on Twitter, and all the reviews were all so generic with no mention of the product.

So fake like, "This is an A1 product that I would definitely buy again." Or "Very happy with this purchase. Seller can be trusted."

Maybe 100 like this all for the same product.


Those 10,000 5-star reviews are fake. Now they’ll also be illegal.

Fake reviews are ruining the web. But there’s some new hope to fight them.

The Federal Trade Commission on Friday proposed new rules to take aim at businesses that buy, sell and manipulate online reviews. If the rules are approved, they’ll carry a big stick: a fine of up to $50,000 for each fake review, for each time a consumer sees it.
