    Just saw this...thought I might share it with those of you who are selling your own items on Amazon or doing fake reviews for money.
    It looks like sellers with more than 35% of their item's reviews being fake are being targeted by Amazon.

    “Our goal is to eliminate the incentives for sellers to engage in review abuse and shut down this ecosystem around fraudulent reviews in exchange for compensation,”

    Apparently they were going after the fake reviewers too.
    Be careful when it comes to Amazon I guess.

    The funny thing is that is how Amazon is making its money right now. They are hypocrites and only act like this when investors catch them, threaten to take away Bozo the Clowns big pay check, and he then wrath of gods the black hats that help keep Amazon the big eCommerce giant it is.
