Is it Okay to Buying Fake Reviews?

Hi,

One of my mates is suggesting me to buy some fake reviews to rank my gig on the first page. Is it okay to buy fake reviews or not?
Please share your experience.
THANKS IN ADVANCE!!!

It’s not allowed because it’s very unethical.

Never try to trick people into think someone organically had an opinion they actually made up in exchange for money.

I’m amazed you would even ask such a question.

Scenario:

A new pizza shop opens in your neighborhood. They decide to pay people to leave reviews on Yelp/Seamless/Grubhub/etc. You read the glowing 5 stars reviews saying how it’s the best pizza in town and well worth the price. You decide to spend your hard earned money on some pizza that night to treat yourself. When you receive your pizza it taste like the stuff you would find in the freezer section of your supermarket.

How would you feel if this happened?

Thank you.

Sellers need to think about what is morally right and understand the impact of doing unethical things instead of just focusing on what they want.

These unethical tricks wouldn’t get sales anyway. Tricks can’t override the fundamental issues preventing sales.

And it’s disappointing when people use the forum to try to find unethical ways of doing things.

It is like going to the police station and ask if you can drink and drive?
Just think of your question once again please!

OMG seriously? How many are you planning to get so that you will be on the first page :rofl: DONT DO IT.

1, You are definitely going to get caught. Perma ban for sure.
2. Will that satisfy you? Cause you have achieved nothing.

Not worth it dude and I know that you know it is a wrong thing to do. Good luck !!!

Yes Jeffry. I know this is wrong. I just wanna get some feedback from expert and experienced like you.

:stuck_out_tongue: What happened Gwyneth :smiley:

I am astounded that you haven’t come up with the right answer yourself.

Of course it’s not okay to fake parts of your profile and con buyers into giving you work.

Please don’t trick people. It’s just not nice.
