Trustpilot Whistleblower

To all companies out there most of the fake 1 star reviews that appear out of nowhere on your company profile are put there by trustpilot themselves. I have just left the company as I can no longer be a part of one of the biggest scams on the planet.



Trustpilot have a sales team that is dedicated to placing fake 1 start reviews on a company profile. The sales team then has to call the company to notify them of this and try to get the company to sign up to a premium 500 pounds per month service which then allows you to have the reviews removed by flagging them. How do I know ? I have been part of this sales team for 5 years.



If any company refuses to sign up to the premium service trustpilot then places a banner on the page saying WARNING WE HAVE DETECTED MISUSE ON THIS PAGE AND HAVE DELETED FAKE REVIEWS.



Its all !!!!!! they delete real reviews from your genuine customers and then flag your account to make sure it does not get any more 5 star reviews from that point onwards. The sales team then bombards the company with sales calls to the point they are forced to sign up to the premium service to they can start collecting reviews again.



I do not agree with the policy they run the are scamming companies out of thousands of pounds per year just to collect reviews.



Their company is also based outside of the EU so they cannot be taken to court under EU law.

Welcome Mary, not quite the introduction we are used to from new members, please tell us a little about yourself. We already know your previous employment details! What is your connection with Turkey?

Re: Trustpilot Whistleblower

Is this the only site you have posted this information or are you doing a blanket posting across many sites?
How and why did you come to choose TLF?

There is many scams on consumers etc , also heard review scam method used on Amazon

Re: Trustpilot Whistleblower

To be honest i am surprised that anyone believes 'reviews' anyway. It is so obviously open to abuse.

I never take any notice of reviews, why rely on others?
The old saying "one mans meat is another's poison" springs to mind.
I never recommend restaurants, my tastes might not be theirs.
How on earth did we survive before reviews, social media influencers et al.
Get out there and make your own choices and live your life.

Thanks, I can understand your thoughts.

So are you putting this out on other social sites or just TLF? Just wondered because the forum isn't the widest read online.
