Because so many people trust TrustPilot, I have selected several Reviews from the Product Review website. People have to earn their Trust Rating on there by the number of Genuine Type Reviews they make, and this Reputable Service is not given to incentives or bribes.
I read the terms and conditions of Membership on the Trust Pilot Website once and they sound OK……telling people to only give genuine Reviews while they themselves have been found to Violate the so-called principles they stand for. Reading the following Reviews about their Services will show you what I mean. It could even Spare you Hassles at some future date.
TRUSTPILOT Reviews On PRODUCT REVIEW
Don’t Trust The Reviews
This site is clearly not independent and actively works with companies to remove less than favourable reviews. I have recently had an experience where it’s taken 3 months to get a review verified after originally posting it via a link from the company I bought the product from. Their requirements for proof of purchase are ridiculous and they work on the premise that most people will give up in frustration.
As someone who buys a lot online, I use what I think are independent review sites all the time. Trustpilot is certainly not on that list.
Up until now I have regarded trustpilot as a go to for information about potential scammers or vendors that I need to avoid. This ends now.
Part time ethics or integrity is the same as NONE AT ALL. Trustpilot, you have just been demoted to the likes of google reviews where you make it easy for corrupt and con-artist companies to get out of bad reviews. I won't use trustpilot for research or reviews ever again, and I suggest to anyone reading this review do the same- the worst, most important reviews that go up there are often simply removed at the company's request.
I'm betting Stylish Rides pays a tidy premium to Trustpilot for its flawless 5 star appearance.
Trustpilot Removes Your Review If The Business Doesn't Like It!
I wrote a bad review for Benzinga Pro after paying $900+ for an annual fee. Benzinga did not like that and had TrustPilot remove it. I fought to keep it up. Trustpilot wanted evidence I was a real person representing a real review. I sent them the credit card statement showing my Benzinga Pro subscription and personal emails back and forth with Benzinga Pro. TrustPilot still remove the review siting that I did not show them enough evidence this was a real review. I fought back again and again for months. They still removed it. You cannot trust TrustPilot.
A 1/5 star is too generous. I have written many product reviews on the trustpilot platform.Expressing buyer concerns with undelivered and faulty products. Never once have I received a positive response.The best advise to ther consumers - "Don't waste your time leaving reviews on Trustpilot". The response is useless as is the feedback, definitely doesn't support consumer rights".
They Will Delete Your Reviews
When placing a review on Trustpilot the owner of the site being reviewed wanted it taken down due to saying it wasn't genuine. When I replied to request for more information they failed to acknowledge my reply and deleted my review of the site/app anyway.
CANNOT BE TRUSTED
TrustPilot don't have actual people looking at their reviews and so they continue to allow 5 star ratings from scammers. Do not trust this pilot, they are as bad as scammers!
Hopeless. Got To Wonder If Trustpilot Is Even Legit.
Tried to leave a negative review on Trustpilot for gsrtpay.com, but despite a huge amount of detail from my first hand experience dealing with gsrtpay and their whole con/scam, Trustpilot kept emailing me over and over asking for documents for proof?? Just crazy. I'm lost for words. Seems they support, or at the very least, don't help to stop scams.
Removing Legit Reviews To Promote Scams
I lost thousands to btcmarketcap.com fake investment. it is a total scam. I even lodged a police report. I want to stop more people becoming victims. Lot of reviews are fake 5 star reviews. Trustpilot keeps removing my true review. They will probably remove this one too.
Please help to Stop Scams. Do not promote them!
Trust Pilot Helping Scammers
Trustpilot is allowing the scammers to remove bad reviews
Tried to warn people about scam site wingroup.net and wingroup removed mine and 48 other bad reviews to give them self a good rating on trustpilot
I Can't Trust Trustpilot
During communications with Trustpilot support, it has become increasingly evident that Trustpilot actively removes product reviews it sees as overly negative to those businesses that pay for its "additional features". In other words, businesses can pay Trustpilot to bias the results. It leaves spam "reviews" but this is intended to give the impression that they are unbiased.
Don't Trust Trust Pilot!
I got credit card fraud after buying from pharmacy planet and posted a negative review which they flagged as defamatory and asked for evidence. When I provided evidence they ignored it and still deleted my review.
A Scammer's Paradise
True Pilot shouldn't be relied on when searching for products, there are 3 bitcoin companies which are known scams, The positive reviews posted about them on this site are completely false. I've had the displeasure of dealing with one of them.
The other two companies have the same websites but with a different name for each.

A Few Negative Highlights Were Miner
When I clicked on the Website, it looked quite dingy and creepy
and they wanted me to click for a CODE Number to see/get anything.
Codes can be a Dodgy Practice, so I did not click, and got out of there!
Then I found this News on that Website through Google:
Massive Facebook Messenger phishing operation generates millions!
Reported on the Bleeping Computer website HERE
Researchers have uncovered a large-scale phishing operation that abused Facebook and Messenger to lure millions of users to phishing pages, tricking them into entering their account credentials and seeing advertisements.
The campaign operators used these stolen accounts to send further phishing messages to their friends, generating significant revenue via online advertising commissions.
According to PIXM, a New York-based AI-focused cybersecurity firm, the campaign peaked in April-May 2022 but has been active since at least September 2021.
PIXM was able to trace the threat actor and map the campaign due to one of the identified phishing pages hosting a link to a traffic monitoring app (whos.amung.us) that was publicly accessible ithout authentication.
Massive scale of abuse
While it is unknown how the campaign initially started, PIXM states victims arrived at phishing landing pages from a series of redirects originating from Facebook Messenger.
As more Facebook accounts were stolen, the threat actors used automated tools to send further phishing links to the compromised account's friends, creating massive growth in stolen accounts.
"A user's account would be compromised and, in a likely automated fashion, the threat actor would log in to that account and send out the link to the user's friends via Facebook Messenger," explains PIXM in the report.
While Facebook has protection measures to stop the dissemination of phishing URLs, the threat actors used a trick to bypass these protections.
The phishing messages used legitimate URL generation services such as litch.me, famous.co, amaze.co, and funnel-preview.com, which would be a problem to block as legitimate apps use them.
After discovering that they could gain unauthenticated access to the phishing campaign stats pages, the researchers found that in 2021, 2.7 million users had visited one of the phishing portals. This figure went up to 8.5 million in 2022, reflecting the massive growth of the campaign.
The researchers believe that these 405 usernames represent only a fraction of the accounts used for the campaign.
After the victim enters their credentials on the phishing landing page, a new round of redirections begins, taking them to advertising pages, survey forms, etc.
The threat actors receive referral revenue from these redirects, which are estimated to be millions of USD at this scale of operation.
Tracing the threat actor
PIXM found a common code snippet on all landing pages, which contained a reference to a website that has been seized and constitutes part of an investigation against a Colombian man identified as Rafael Dorado.
It is unclear who seized the domain and placed the notice on the site.
A reverse whois lookup revealed links to a legitimate web development company in Colombia and old sites offering Facebook "like bots" and hacking services.
PIXM shared the results of its investigation with the Colombian Police and Interpol, but as they note, the campaign is still ongoing, even though many of the identified URLs have gone offline.
