Just read this on yahoo finance, will fiverr start banning accounts now?
I would be more worried about the fact that Amazon wants the real names of the fiverr accounts who were offering the fake reviews. Amazon tries ti get the names even with a court order....
Banned accounts are going to be the least problem.
LOL now what will those guys do who always ask for fake reviews
but not happen with Fiverr.
Don't you think its hypocritical of them for suing? Like those movie stars or hired models really use those products. "Use Axe body spray so chicks will dig ya" or "Eat/ Take (insert whatever food/pill/exercise equipment) to get the body that you desire". Even the game reviews of IGN rating most triple A games as the "THE BEST GAME EVAHHHH".
Even the "advertisements" of amazon has a hint of "fakeness" in providing the needs of the consumer and well rounded customer support. Why are they targeting fiverr?
they won't be able to get enough data from fiverr to identify someone in most cases, they can only get the names, country (both can be fake) or if someone give them his/her address, VAT id then that too, so i think in most cases they either need to follow the money and ask for the missing details from paypal (the paypal account can be fake too), payoneer, banks or maybe the ISPs (if they can get ips from fiverr), we will see how many people can they identify, if that's what they're after
Amazon may think that they caught a lot of US people whom they can go after relatively easily, however there are a lot of accounts where the owner just set US as the country to look more legit and get more sales when in fact he/she resides elsewhere, in such countries which don't even have any internet laws or they simply don't give two fucks
on the other hand, if you live in the US or in a country where you can be hold liable for doing something like this, i think you should know the consequences, which may or may never come
they aren't targeting fiverr, they sued for this before others too, they are targeting the fake review providers, it's just pretty convenient for them to ask fiverr to provide the details, because fiverr is big and they can get a lot fo user info from one place, maybe the biggest place where the reviews were sold
Do you think that after Fiverr they will go to other places? Forums, for example ?
Besides, I know that fake Amazon review is cheating, but if they plan to clean their listings and reorder the products because they will have cancelled the false reveiws, there will be an Amazon big bang. Lot of sellers will be hurt.
Then just get some more fake reviews, they can't stop it only try to scare some people from offering it.
What about people who actually get the physical product and are re-reimbursed? Does this count as a fake review then?
I say even for a large company like Amazon it's not possible to sue each and everyone that leave a fake review.
They won't sue.
No, thats not a fake review that counts as a trial.
lol I still see people posting amazon reviews on fiverr.
Fiverr getting some greats business from last 6 months so that they will now do their best to maintain the level of website, they will stop spamming as much as they can. Rules will be strict and nothing will be too easily to hide from there
that's weird though, i mean how hard would it be to add "amazon review" to the word filter?! , and mak it impossible to create such gigs, sure you can trick the filter, but that's what people search for, if the gig doesn't come up for the keywords, it's almost like if it wasn't even there or why not just block the search term all together?!
it's rather interesting, because when instagram whopped fiverr's ass, there hasn't been instagram services for quite some time, which was related to account creation, followers or likes, maybe there aren't too many now either, it appears facebook and their lawyers are scarier than amazon lol
this is old news my friend , you are behind
Many peoples is going out of business
whoa, this is craz
What this was really aimed at were the people that are creating products, and then paying people to purchase this item and leave a stellar review. These people are caused deterioration of trust between consumers and Amazon; when someone buys something when there are 20 reviews of how amazing it is, and then an actual customer buys it, and it's a piece of low quality shit.
I'm going to tag "Amazing Selling Machine" since they advocate purchasing fake reviews to boost crappy Private Label products. Not up front, but they do.
No different than the tactic of suing people that download pirated movies.
Trying to scare anyone offering fake reviews of being sued.
