    I'm a dummy. I created a Kindle book and ordered an Amazon review from someone on Fiverr.
    But I didn't ask for a sample of their prior work. Doh!
    Now my cool book has a review that sounds like a junior high kid from timbuktu wrote it. Looks bad and I can't remove it.

    Moral: Ask for a sample of a reviewer's work first!

    not sure if it's really a bad thing, at least it sounds like an honest review, but what's stopping you to order more (not from the same provider obviously)? in fact when you start to receive real reviews, you won't be able to control those either
