    I have been a victim of a fake negative 1 star review attack on my amazon seller's account .
    All unverified , accounts that have only 1 review in them and pretty much have the same wishlist .
    And for the crown jewel , they were all copy pasted from guess who ? My main competitor's actual verified negative 1 star reviews .
    Last 3 had changed 2-3 words in the review , but still extremely noticeable .
    How did I find that it was copied ? before I entered the market I read the negative reviews on my competitors product to find out what can I solve and improve on mine .
    And I remembered one review specifically that suddenly appeared on my product .
    I have reported all of this to amazon , they are so slow that meanwhile my sales have been cut in half .

    What do you think ? could a competitor be that stupid to do such a thing and copy his own reviews ?
    Or maybe is it someone playing both of us ? it is a very small niche and me an him are basically the only one's who are making sales so im not sure .

    Im a tired of waiting for amazon and their slow responses , does anyone have an idea on how to find a connection between this competitor and the fake reviews besides that it was copied from his product ?

    Some people actually get sued but most of them are in the US.

    The ones that are outside are mostly just banned or they delete all of their fake reviews.

    Make an offer he can't refuse, if you know what I'm saying.

    Wait for Amazon for now... hopefully you linked to all of the reviews side by side so any idiot on the support team can see how outrageously similar they are.

    Are you serious???? Why would you commit murder for a negative Amazon review??? Are you out of your mind??? That is insane thing to do, you might want to rethink that strategy.

    I'm more curious as to Sujon Ahmed's style of "help".
    As for "make him an offer he cannot refuse". Google the phrase. I wouldn't even consider that an idiomatic expression but a lexicon of the world's language.
