A Review Or Two At Your Zoo!

So today is a little did you know there at your show. Some of it is very wrong and it needs to be sung a little review song. Whether they come on strong or not there is an evil review plot.

The other day,
At the ODesk bay,
The cat applied for this and that,
Making a little money at our mat.

One he thought was easy,
Even if things were cheesy.
It was to review stuff.
Sounded easy enough.

Just needed an Amazon account,
And you could review a huge amount.
Get a whole buck per review,
And then the rules came due.

The reviews would be done for you,
You'd just have to copy and paste at your zoo.
In other words, lie!
The reviews were typed by some other guy.

More than likely the owner of the thing,
They wanted the review on at Amazon's wing.
I played a long for a bit,
Having no intention of doing such umm shit.

Then came the reviews to post.
Made me sick at my coast.
They were reviews for pills and such,
Like vitamins and things that supposedly help much.

They stated in the review,
That everything was so true.
That my doctor told me about it,
And it worked, making it a hit.

Pffft down right criminal there.
Think of how many at every lair,
Are looking for something to work.
They read the fake review and think the pill is a perk.

They waste their dough,
And find it is nothing but dung from a crow.
Worse than that,
They may do more harm than good at their mat.

All because someone got paid a buck,
To tell all they are in luck.
Copy and pasted a review,
Making all believe it is true.

Sickening what these companies do. They hire an outsource overseas crew, get a group to copy and paste reviews and pretend they are getting tons of views. Books,movies, etc. is one thing. But pills and stuff at their wing? Disgusting as can be with their fake spree. 33% of all internet reviews are said to be fake and now you know how they partake. The cat hopes they get beat over the head with a bass. No fake copy and pasted reviews will ever be done by my little rhyming ass.

Enjoy your spring, have a fling.

  1. Hurray for Cat, good cheer to you
    Standing up for what you do
    I was naive, I did not believe
    That writers lie behind their sleeve
    You warned me that many were fake
    Written by a paid off rake
    Thank you cat for making it known
    To sink so low only makes one groan

  2. Fake reviews seems to be the vogue
    Being paid for services make them rogues
    2-cent's ruse
    Just an excuse
    To just hoodwink sincere,meant well folks

  3. I never really trust an internet review
    It sounds like a bunch of lies that spew
    I only trust word-of-mouth from people I know
    That way I know it's not just for show

  4. Do you mean Cat does not aspire to have a side business of selling diet or security products online as well? Oh those reviewers tricked me with their tales of success. I should not believe everything that I read online.

  7. Really sad that most all of these "work at home" jobs are scams. I always figure if I had to pay to make money something was up. Back when I started writing online I actually had a company cold call me. Said that I could pay them, they would set my up with a website and I could write for them. Well I did. I wrote articles for them at 5.00 a crack and made over 3000.00 doing it. I more than paid for my initial investment of 200.00. Unfortunately one day they closed their doors and I lost the ability to post to my website...so I started the one I have now on blogger for free and the rest is history.

  10. I was doing academic work for a reputable company and never had a problem. I worked for him a good long while too, and he paid well and spot-on. He asked me about a year in if I'd like to write dissertations for money. Um no!! I quit working for him instantly. I miss the steady income, but have zero regrets. What s wrong with people?!??!? It makes me want to pull my hair...but I shan't. I'll just keep being good over here, and hope that's the norm, and not the other.

    1. Wow, that is pretty bad too
      Could get in trouble with that at ones zoo
      Best to get the hell away indeed
      Many look for the easy way out at their feed

  11. Wow, this is a scam indeed
    had not heard about it before
    thank you for alerting us to it
    so none of us fell for that store.

    Seriously, thanks for letting us know about this. I will do book reviews on my blog but that is only after I read the book and then give my opinion about it, not someone else's and I never get paid for it other than getting to keep the copy of the book I reviewed.

  15. Wow that sounds almost criminal to me
    They could literally be causing deaths,
    For what? Of course, more money.
    Amazon is slime for playing the game
    It's not like they don't already have wealth and fame
    They're taking over publishing. Isn't that enough?
    But to go and make more than bazillions?
    I've lost all respect. Glad you called their bluff.

  16. Totally unbelievable! So sad too, because folks to rely on that stuff, I know I read the reviews of items that I buy. Now, I'll wonder if it's real or a copy and paste. I hate that site, Angie's list - she requires you pay before you can check out a vendor, but it should be the other way around. I refuse, especially after a contractor came to the table with his all printed off neatly - don't tell me he or his friends didn't sign on, pay the fee, and then write their own reviews! Not buying! And how the hell do they afford all those costly ads on television? If you're going to help the consumer, help the consumer, don't rip them off too!

    1. Yep, and it is usually just one guy
      He makes up 25,000 amazon accounts on the fly
      Then switches between them and reviews from each one
      And gets paid a buck per every one he gives a run
      So 25K accounts
      You can add up the amounts

  17. Nothing fake in your show

      Some are easily hauling in 100K a year

  18. Oy! that's annoying. It's so frustrating all the scams that are out there.

    I'm having Amazon review frustrations also, but from a different aspect. I've been making that push for reviews (I mentioned on my blog), but I know Amazon deleted at least three people's posts. They're not able to review my book :( So, I've emailed Amazon and they're contacting Amazon. But I have to say, it is an annoying process in general dealing with reviews on Amazon. Hopefully they can straighten up some of these issues (what happened to you and me). Glad we can both rant on it a bit.

    Hope you have a great weekend, Pat. :)

    1. hahaha nice rant indeed
      But sadly the reviews won't take seed
      The dicks deleted a whole bunch of mine
      Pissing off the feline
      Plus author aren't allowed to post on other authors there
      Or at least that is a rule I just became aware
      As they went and deleted a bunch of reviews I made
      So not able to review even if I paid
