Amazon alert is a blog created to discuss unethical review and marketing practices. We’re fed up with the flood of fake reviews and unethical practices we’ve seen online, everywhere from Amazon to Angie’s List, and we’re not going to take it any more. Who are we? We’re a group of readers. Our member bloggers include: a former Amazon employee, a former marketing executive, and a retired public school teacher. All posts are edited prior to posting by one of our members who was a newspaper editor.
Anything written in this blog is the opinion of the blog creators. Our posts are not meant to defame, harass or personally attack any individual or company. However, as journalists, we intend to report what we’ve encountered while investigating fake reviews since 2010. Our promise to readers is that we won’t post anything without careful research and double-checking the facts. Our double check ensures that at least two member bloggers have checked every post that we believe requires review prior to posting.
We invite every reader of this blog to do their own independent research before drawing any conclusions from anything we’ve written.
