Proof of corruption...Read this ad...

Here's a screenshot of someone at work in the review buying and selling industry.

Here's some proof of corruption in the online consumer review world. I discovered trouble on Odesk.com. The portion of the screen shot above is what I saw at the end of my sting operation (love these).

I was left wondering, "Was this ad targeting workers to post good reviews -- or bad ones?" In this case I concluded that the contracting agency was looking for someone to post a series of good reviews on more than 5 consumer review websites for a moving company.

Most of the Odesk.com workers performing such tasks are easily tied to out of state and out of country IP addresses. If you're a business owner --- please do not risk paying someone who offers to get you good reviews. No one should be allowed to put your business in this type of danger. Buying and selling reviews isn't ethical. It's dangerous. It's also easy to get caught.

The company name in need of reviews in this case was actually mentioned in the above reply. . .
