Have you ever investigated a product or service online by checking out the reviews? I think most of us have at one time or another. But did you know that some of those reviews may not be legit? Some companies PAY people to write positive reviews about their product or service, so be on the look out.
How can you spot a FAKE review?
Money Talks News has listed some helpful tips from the horse’s mouth so to speak. You can get the inside scoop from someone who used to get paid to write biased reviews.
Tip #1 Stay away from reviews that sound like a sales pitch.
Tip #2 Be suspicious of too many 5 star ratings.
Tip #3 Check the review date and time. If there are numerous positive reviews within a 48 hour time period that could indicate paid reviews.
