As with most things in life, there are some risks. This page will explain all possible adverse outcomes of buying fake reviews.
What are the risks? #
The main risks associated with purchasing reviews are that they may be detected as forgeries and, therefore, would be removed. Although this is quite rare, all platforms actively monitor and remove potentially fake reviews.
How are fake reviews detected? #
There are multiple ways to detect a fake review. The primary method performed by all platforms is account analysis. This consists of each review being automatically inspected, looking for the following:
- Accounts created with low quality, data center proxies and VPNs.
- Discrepancies between the profile’s country and the IP address’ country.
- Multiple accounts registered on the same IP address and device.
- Suspicious and/or forged and/or flagged browser fingerprint.
- Company page with a history of fake reviews.
The review may be manually inspected if one or multiple red flags are raised. When that happens, the only way your review is safe is by ensuring they have been created correctly. The reviews are removed automatically in some cases (such as multiple accounts detected on the same IP/device).
How Ormosis makes everything risk-free #
Ormosis takes care of all of this and much more when providing reviews. We have adopted multiple precautions to ensure the associated risks are marginal. After maintaining this position for over a decade, we have learned a trick or two. For obvious reasons, we can not disclose these measures publicly. More information is available on our “Is it safe to buy reviews?” page.
A further risk lies within a potential competitor or customer that actively reports new reviews, which may result in a manual inspection. Each platform has its own rules and policies, leading to different outcomes when reviews are reported.
Advanced platforms #
Certain platforms, such as Amazon and BBB, have advanced methods to detect forged reviews. These platforms require additional time and extra care for guaranteed success. We have taken this into consideration and adjusted our prices accordingly.
Before purchasing reviews, you should always consider the risks and decide if they outweigh the numerous benefits of buying fake online reviews.
