Talk about shady!

I just received a letter from a store with Amazon asking me to give a 5 star review in exchange for $20. I reported them to Amazon. Amazon says it’s not allowed

I get free stuff in exchange for my honest review sometimes. But no pay. That’s skeevy.

I just gave them a one star review, and explained what they did

Yea thats ok but not forcing a 5 star review. Idk 20$ sounds shady. Some websites give me points that I can use but not even worth 1$ so I don’t do it.

What’s shady is that I’d have to leave a fake 5 star review, which misleads other people. It’s not a 5 star product

I got a letter in the mail recently from someone I bought something from on Amazon that said she was a single mom and poor. She went into a bunch of personal problems she was having in her life and asked that I give her a positive review so that things might turn around for her.

Whenever buying from Amazon. Always check RECENT reviews. Not TOP reviews.

@anon1517417 that sucks that the seller was trying to scam you. Did you report it?

I’m not sure if she was sincere or scamming, but I didn’t report it. To be honest I’m not really sure what’s allowed when asking for reviews. :woman_shrugging:t3:

In any case, I’m quite ADD and normally so overwhelmed by my own to-do list that I rarely give reviews anyway.
