Reputation Management Scheme Exposed

Reputation Management Scheme Exposed

Courthouse News Service has an interesting story of how poor reviews posted on Google were removed by a group of businesses claiming they could help companies with their reputation management. The scheme is described in a lawsuit filed by Consumer Opinion, a Nevada LLC. Consumer Opinion “claims the defendants do this to get Google to remove the bad reviews, if the targets themselves won’t. … It sued four business owners, their allegedly fake news agencies and authors, and four businesses that allegedly hired them to scrub the Internet of negative content”, according to Courthouse News Service.
