Amazon Sues Over 1,000 For Fake Reviews

Amazon’s Credibility is Being Threatened by the Fake Reviews

Amazon has sued 1,114 for using Fiverr to post fake reviews in exchange for money.  The fake reviews are hurting Amazon’s credibility, and the internet giant is taking them on head on.  The lawsuit only lists their usernames, but Amazon is pressing Fiverr to get their personal info.

Fiverr has a history of cooperating with similar lawsuits, so it’s likely than Amazon will be successful in their mission.  But the massive number of fake reviews means it’s not a problem that’s going to go away anytime soon.
