Online reviews legal advice

Legal advice on fake or defamatory online reviews

Fake and defamatory online reviews are often extremely damaging to local and to national businesses. Negative online reviews on websites such as TripAdvisor, are rather harmful to small and local businesses, whilst fake reviews on GlassDoor tend to have a major adverse impact on larger businesses and on start-ups.

Spotting fake online reviews

It is often difficult to prove that an online review is in fact fake. The business owner might know that a review is fake but getting the proof that might be not as straight forward. Having assisted hundreds of clients in relation to thousands of fake and defamatory online reviews, it is often our job to spot the characteristics of a fake online review and then produce the proof needed to show that a particular online review is fake.

Unmasking the identity of internet users who post fake reviews

One of the firm’s specialities is the unmasking of publishers of fake online reviews. We go about using IP addresses, cross referenced email addresses, linked email accounts, linked websites and other investigative tools to enable our clients to unmask the true identification of whoever is behind a fake, defamatory online review.

Removing defamatory online reviews from review websites

Often, our clients’ ultimate goal is to facilitate the removal of fake and defamatory online reviews. Our lawyers have so far removed thousands of defamatory online reviews from review websites all over the world. We are able to use judicial tools and strategies to facilitate removal of defamatory online reviews even from review websites that are located in the United States.

Taking posters of fake online reviews to court

In many cases, it transpires that the authors of the defamatory or fake online reviews are people known to our clients. Most likely these are competitors, former employees or disgruntled customers. Whilst removing the fake reviews from the review websites is important, holding authors of fake online reviews to account is often as important for our clients.

Remove WASET web pages from Google

WASET problem lawyers

WASET is a known scam website dressed up as a serious academic organisation claiming to ‎be linked to thousands of serious academic research establishments.‎

The website owners organise mirror international conferences in almost every subject matter ‎one could think of and in many locations around the world.

The WASET scam represents huge problems for genuine conference organisers across the ‎world.‎ Thousands of genuine organisation’s websites and conferences are being hijacked by ‎WASET causing conference organisers massive embarrassment and huge financial loses. ‎

The most common complaint by genuine conference organisers against WASET is in ‎relation to theft of intellectual property - logos, copyright material, website contents, ‎goodwill and so on. ‎

It is possible to remove WASET web pages from the internet if they breach your ‎organisation’s intellectual property rights by obtaining a single court judgement against it ‎which is then used to have relevant web pages de-listed from Google Search, Bing Search ‎and from other search engines. ‎

Remove Reviews from Yelp.com

remove yelp review

Many business owners who find themselves victims of the 1 in 5 (acknowledged!) fake reviews on Yelp.com will admit that fake reviews are a business killer.

So when I first read Yelp.com advice to victims of fake reviews I thought they were faking it. 

Fabricated stories that are made to sound credible with loads of ‘detailed information’ about the ‘real experience’ suffered by average Joe whilst shopping at your store/restaurant/office are as common as the name Joe.

It is now scientifically proven that at least a fifth of the reviews on Yelp.com are fake reviews. The real number is much higher – in my experience around 40 percent of all reviews on online review websites, are fake.
