Buyers who have asked you to give fake reviews

Have you been asked to give a review on items that you have not actually reviewed (for example on amazon)? I have done a couple of reviews but the buyer has gave me codes to purchase the item and not costing me anything. But, I have had a couple of buyers who have asked me to give reviews for things on amazon that I have not purchased or received (for example, a camper!). I just don’t think it’s a good idea. What do you think?

It violates Amazon’s Terms and so it violates Fiverr’s Terms. You will get responses ranging from “it’s unethical and shameful” to “it’s only pretending - people do it all the time”. The only thing that really matters is what you think of it. :slight_smile:

Well, I replied to her saying I do not give “fake” reviews. I guess I need to expect all kinds of requests.

Thank you!
