Amazon is suing 10,000 people for leaving fake reviews, but is that enough?

If you’ve bought a five-star rated item on Amazon only to have it fall apart within days of getting it, then you’ve likely wondered if any of those reviewers actually used the product. Well, spoiler alert, it turns out that they might not have done it, as Amazon is suing over 10,000 people for orchestrating plots to leave thousands of fake reviews on products in its digital stores.

Filed on Monday, the legal action takes aim at Facebook group admins that have accepted cash or other favors in exchange for posting a load of made-up reviews for products sold on Amazon in the US, UK, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and Japan (via TechCrunch (opens in new tab)).
