Unless I’m in a really giddy mood and pretty much everything in my life is five stars, I avoid leaving five-star Amazon reviews. That’s so no one will confuse my real Amazon reviews with the fake ones.
How prevalent are the fake ones…?
I have no idea. I’ve heard that Amazon is getting aggressive about removing fake five-star reviews. It could be an overwhelming task.
Sellers are eager to give some of us free products, or – in this case – actually pay us as well, IF we post five-star reviews at Amazon.
Here’s a typical request I received in today’s email:
Thanks a lot for sharing your experience on amazon, which helps all customers a lot!
In order to express our appreciation, we would like to invite you to our free product test activity, you can get them for totally cost-free!
If you share your experience of a 5-star review on amazon, we’ll send you extra $5.
