    Hi, my company has start to sell TA reviews for about 3 months now, technically we do not promote our service as fake tripadvisor review through our website, instead we sell a marketing service (tripadvisor page optimization) that guarantee a certain amout of new positive reviews monthly.

    There are any legal risk in this kind of service? anyone has some experience?

    E porca la madonna, however that article has give us a lots of traffic!

    We have done this service some years ago, we have received a c&d email saying that we can't use the word "Tripadvisor" even if we have a disclaimer on site that explain that we are not TA and we are not related to it. We have simply ignored that c&d without consequence, we had put our sito OFF simply because was became impossible to sent TA review anymore, but now we have finally find a way :cool:
