I always read the reviews of any place before I go.
I want to be prepared and usually, other people's experiences can prepare me for what I am walking into BUT I know not to trust every review.
A weird phenomenon is happening where reviews are popping up from people who never even visited the place they are reviewing.
Now I know you are asking, "why can't you ignore that review and read the others?" and I do BUT when these users review a place poor review they are also giving them a low star review which brings down the overall star rating and if these fake reviews bring down the rating too low, I may not even click on the place to check it out.
But the bigger question is WHY! You have to see what I am talking about.
A Twitter user @_theeunicorn_ kicked off this thread sharing someone's review of a Caribbean restaurant giving them one star saying their food was too spicy EVEN THOUGH THEY'VE NEVER BEEN THERE. WHAT!?!?!
If you want to see these weird reviews, enjoy the thread below!
