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

If you bought a five-star item on Amazon only to have it fall apart within days of receiving it, you’ve probably wondered if one of those reviewers actually used the product. Well, spoiler alert, it turns out they may not have, as Amazon is suing more than 10,000 people for orchestrating plots to leave thousands of fake reviews on products on its digital stores.

The legal action, filed Monday, is directed against Facebook group administrators who have accepted cash or other favors in exchange for posting a load of fabricated reviews for products sold on Amazon in the US, UK, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and Japan (via TechCrunch (opens in new tab)).
