Amazon Sues 1114 Fiverr Users

Amazon did a sting operation and after its completion Amazon filed a lawsuit accusing more than 1,100 freelancee of Fiverr to post fake or phony products reviews on Amazon.com. Publishing such kind of reviews for products is against the terms of seevices of Amazon.com besides that Fiverr also discarded or banned all these persons from their brand.

The lawsuit by Amazon.com is neither to target Fiverr nor to the merchents who hired them all. Rather it is for the peesons who did this illegal work which is aginst the terms of services of Amazon.com. The lawsuit points clearly on one person who goes by the username bess98. This person charges $5 for an Amazon review, and claims to have “more than 30+ different account and ip” — it can be said or assumed that the different ip adresses were used in order to avoid the chances to get caught for this act — and invites the merchant to write the review that will be posted.

In today’s filing of lawsuit by Amazon.com it stated that “most of those sites have since closed and Amazon has identified and taken action against sellers who used those sites to obtain fake reviews.”

    Its a sleezey practice yes but it falls under free speech. Amazon
    will be found to be able to control this because Amazon has control over
    who if anyone can review a product. – they can even set it up so only
    people who order a product can review it, but they DONT.

    No US lawmaker is gong to create a law where people have to tell the truth.
    Last week a Jeb Bush aid was sent to ask a question she thought would
    hurt Jeb’s political rival in a town hall meeting event. And it isn’t
    like Jeb was the first person to think of it. It is the same type of
    thing. Scummy, but legal.
