( 5000+ fake reviews found within all the listings of this seller)
Everybody knows the recent big news that Apple released 3 new iphones (iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, iPhone XR). BUT be careful, some of greedy sellers are planing rip off customers on Amazon, and their plan started!!
Check out this Listing:
Main ASIN: B07FQY28GR
1.Two week ago they started their listing (by using my tracking software)
(totally 14 days of history)
Immediately they reviewed their products with their own amazon buyer accounts.
three reviews was found on their listing and all of them are 5 stars even though NOBODY EVER BOUGHT their product yet. From my analisis here is how they did it: they first upload 3 products by FBM (Fulfillment by Merchant ), then they bought it themself. They don’t have to shipp anything, just upload tracking numbers that already delivered, so they can immediately review their own products (3 5-star review was found immediately)
Then the start massive buy their own products via amazon ads, try to make their product very popular, (they don’t have to need a lot of buyer accounts, 10 buyer accounts are enough). From my analize, their traffic immediately went to peak, each buyer account can repeated order their own products with FBM which no need any shipping.
Then thousands even ten thousands of real products are on the way to amazon warehouse. Upon arrival, a lot of buyers started to buy their products (because they repeatedly bought hundreds of even more than one thousands of product via FBM, the ranking of the listing is TOP now )
i. SEE THE AMAZING RANKING IS #88, SHOCKING!!!
Ii. SEE THE PRICE IS $8.98 (lower price is much easier for them to buy their own products)
- Then they RISE the price to $13.99 and their reviews INCRED to 19 in just one day (for this product no one receive product in the same day order)
SEE THE REVIEW NUMBERS INCREASED ABNORMALLY!
- On Sep 25, I came across this listing, and I found this listing are so strange, and want alert other customers, how come amazon system automatically blocked further review because the abnormal activities of this listing.
7.System automatically detect the abnormal actions of this listing, and no more accept further reviews.
However, this is the KEY. It works this way, each day amazon only accept 3 (THREE) reviews since this listing already detected by amazon system. Then they started to upload 3 reviews immediately by themselves at the same time,
They are continuing to do this, each day add 3 reviews, and no more reviews are accepted. By this way no real customer voices are heard (your real experiences are blocked by the system), SCAM!!!
Watch this, and you will found this listing add 3 5-star reviews each day at the most easily time, and for that day NO MORE new real reviews are accepte!!!
I bought one of their product, and your right, it’s a very low quality China made product.
A picture worth a thousand words, see the fakespot analysis result.
Our analysis detected 95.0% low quality reviews
My voice: I’m a small seller on amazon that selling high quality phone cases and screen protectors, and recently I found a lot of these kinds of scam on amazon, all awful things I saw from these sellers, things much worth than you could think. I wrote this article just let my voice be heard. If more and more customers notice this and report it to amazon, many of honest customers and my right will be protected.
