Our war against the "Invasion of the Locksmith Scammers"
YAHOO / GOOGLE
REVIEWER SCAM REVEALED
how to protect yourself and ID phony reviews
The reviewer scam as we have uncovered it is remarkably simple and therefore is pretty easy to detect.
Both Google and Yahoo share listings of businesses with the public.
One example is here:
Once you click on the link for "Be Right There Locksmith" you will see they have 15 reviews!
I am picking the review by ami. (Curious, Ami doesn't want to capitalize his, her, or its name)
Once you get to that person's profile, click on "reviews (25 in Ami's case) and you will
quickly discover the scam! All 25 of Ami's reviews are for LOCKSMITHS - WOW!
3 different locksmiths on May 21, 3 more on April 28, 8 more on Feb 11.... Seems that Ami repeatedly has "bad locksmith days" and has never encountered a locksmith she didn't love!
is that each and every of these so-called different companies are all operated
by Millennium @ 1402 N. Miller Rd in Scottsdale and all of the other
addresses that they are listing are completely PHONY
ADDRESSES - Drive
to them - I DARE YA!
(ok, if you're like me and too lazy to drive to them, then CALL the businesses listed in RED next to the phony address and ASK them if there is a locksmith there...)
you can actually find a locksmith at any of those addresses,
except for the 1402 N. Miller Rd where they actually have a hole in the wall office.
In a nutshell, That is the >>REVIEWER SCAM<< they write their own reviews and splatter them all over the internet.
