I filled negative review for GearBest purchase and after 3 days (TrustPilot) they removed my review because Gearbest reported my review as FALSE. I've sent TrustPilot a copy of bank statement, prinscreent of the order from GearBest "Order" section and my review still remained Hidden. Money really does makes the world go round
“I reported a company to TrustPilot that are obviously faking their trustpilot reviews. TrustPilot's reaction was to stop me flagging the obviously fake reviews. A once great site is now just like the rest of them.”
“My authentic reviews were taken down without asking questions, only emailing me to say my reviews are flagged as suspicious. Whereas the website is filled up with fake good reviews by the companies own employees and by paid agencies. The website is payed by companies to maintaining a good customer rating.”
“I have reported a completely false and damaging review to trustpilot .
They took the review off for a few hours then put it back on and said that as far as they were concerned the review was not harmful.
They told me to write to the person that wrote the fake review. Now i have to wait 5 days to see if the fake reviewer will respond. In the meantime the fake review is published for all to see !
Only then can I appeal the review.
They have ignored my emails to them.They are not trustworthy.
They do not check or investigate to make sure that any bad reviews are genuine.”
“Completely misleading site , make out their impartial when this is not true. It is more or less impossible to leave a bad review for a company that pays to be a on trustpilot. They just get flagged for a couple of months so nobody can read it then deleted
. Complete scam ..”
“I have read all the bad review about Trustpilot saying they are fake reviews the only fake one that I consider to be fake are all those people that are saying trustpilot are fake in my eyes Trustpilot are one of the most honest places to leave a review about a company or other people and find them second to none they Trustpilot in the past I have said something bad about a company called Sky they would not let it go live until I sent them proof of what I had ,then checked it out to see if was genuine before they let it go live on Trustpilot making them like I said a very honest place to leave a review and should be more than 5 stars more like a sky full of stars”
“There are many fake negative reviews on Trustpilot designed to destroy the reputation of other companies, similarly there are even more fake positive reviews used to promote companies whose services and products are questionable. If you look at the dates of these reviews, they tend to come on same days and many in one week! Many with similar use of words or alarming warning title like " Stay away"; Don't buy...."; "Worst company" and so on. I do not trust Trustpilot review anymore, and they don't influence me anymore.”
“Same as many reviews here. Wrote a Damning review of Enstroga energy, it was flagged and I provided the evidence as requested and no response. I.requested the flag was lifted numerous times ...still nothing.
Overall score of a company can be completely skewed.
“I wrote a (1*) review for a watch selling company, Iguana Sell in Spain, because they made wrong claims and could not deliver the advertised Sinn watch.
Shortly after, I received a message from Trustpilot, asking for supporting information an proof,which I provided two times in form of an original email from the official Australian Importer. However, Trustpilot ignored all proof and refused to publish my honest review.
I totally understand, that Trustpilot has to work in the interest of their customers who are paying big fees in order to make their reviews look great, however, deleting true reviews is not a good business practice and not fair at all!”
“I booked a stay through Air bnb in December. The holiday was due to take place at the end of march. On the 8th of march I decided that travel to the US was unsafe due to the COVID situation. We therefore cancelled the trip in the hope that I would be able to get a refund - quite understandably given the situation and that we were travelling with a my brother who is currently suffering with Lung cancer (the point of the trip really - a final family reunion as we have siblings in the US).
5 days later air bnb made the decision that anyone who had a booking after the 14th March could get a full refund for their stay if they wished to cancel. After contacting the Host he advised that a refund would be made available. I waited 1 month and nothing came through.
I therefore contacted air bnb again and explained the situation. Amazingly they advised that because we cancelled before they announced the policy 5 days later that we would not be included in their refund policy even though it would have qualified.
I explained the personal circumstances and tried to escalate the situation but was rejected at every point. The most upsetting thing was the lack of empathy shown by many of their representatives to not only the difficult COVID situation but also the the personal circumstances and the extremely high risk of someone with lung cancer travelling while there was a deadly infectious disease spreading across the world.
Despite everything, I was left absolutely speechless when they gave up replying to my messages.
“Trustpilot are as crooked as the bent companies they support. Had money stolen by cdkeys. Supplied evidence from PayPal payment to verify my transaction yet trustpilot took my review down. Proving they are in league with the scammers on the internet.”
