Well, it really bothers me as a buyer. How can I trust anyone’s review? I’m spending money to receive a good product or service; many times I do so based on the reviews I read.
I’ve read on this forum, there are level 2’s and higher that buy or exchange reviews when they are not getting sales (low impressions, etc.) to trick, not only the buyer but, the system to rank them higher.
There are level 2 who will sell their account for hundreds of $$ instead of shutting it down. If you read some old threads, there are people talking about it.
I buy, I get more than shoddy work, I get bad communication, late delivery, headache, etc. It’s a nightmare for me. It’s a bigger nightmare for a new buyer, who gets ripped off.
New buyers get chastised when they buy low: “The reason why you got bad (whatever) is because you are cheap & went the lowest prices gig.”
New buyers get chastised when they buy high: “You should have bought low instead of spending a lot on your 1st try.”
I have, along with everyone else, given those exact same advice to a newbie buyer - it’s confusing as heck for them.
