I agree with you. This is definitely manipulation and abuse of amazon review system. I have added this guy and will check on him every month to see if he will ever get suspended.

Well its pretty clear they are doing something skeezy.

Maybe found a temporary "workaround" for the "free product for reviews" ban but doesnt seem legit IMO.

You could try reporting it though whatever they are doing appears to not be very legit and Amazon bots will hopefully put an end to that soon.

Pretty brazen.

just out of curiosity, is this affecting what you are selling? i would focus more on my store and work on my items instead of spending time checking what other sellers are doing, just my opinion though.

Oh my god

Lmao, how obvious is that

Every review is different though and in paragraphs. He must have a script making accounts running all day but he must've wrote all those reviews one by one at some point.

It would appear so............. However I think it is more of a rogue review club.

Why?

MANY of the accounts posting those reviews have SOME verified purchases in their history for even high ticket items. So it LOOKS like the accounts may be legit in some manner but that they are part of some group trying to fly under Amazon's ban against product/review swaps.

Some sellers think they're smart when they're not. According to the questions asked on at least one item, and the answers from people have bought items and seemingly historic buyers they're also contacting, they have been emailed by the company asking if they'll leave a review of the item and once done they'll receive one as a gift. It seems they are only words and are taking their customers for fools :) here's an answer to one of the questions.

A: I did not purchase this item. I purchased and older one and this seller contacted me and ask me to do a review for the one I purchased and the email they sent said they wanted to send me the new model
Facial steamer for free as anniversary gift from them. I did the review as they requested and I don't know how but they posted it for this one and they never sent me the new model as they promised and when I emailed them 3 times they finally responded and claim they didn't send the email and will not respond to any further email I send them regarding this. I will definitely take my review off since they obtained it on false pretense and used it for a model I didn't buy and then their customer service I would rate less than a one star if possible from their lack of response then their dishonest business practice I have witnessed through this past couple of weeks concerning this issue.
So basically to answer your question the reviews can't be listed as verified since obviously a lot of us were ask to do the review in return for newer model then they somehow posted our reviews under this model. Shame on this seller. I will be contacting Amazon about this issue for sure. see less
