FULL STORY HERE https://foodieking.sg/trending/internet-bullies-led-business-owner-to-some-disturbing-findings/

If you’re a business owner, what will you do if there’s an army of ‘trolls’ giving fake negative reviews about your business?

This is an interesting case of cyber bullying. Mentai-Ya Japanese Cuisine has been receiving threats and fake negative google reviews over the last 4 months since the opening of its Tampines branch.

After months of harassment by Google reviewers (Deon Goh, Eunice, Wen Bin Chua)

Mentai-Ya conducted an investigation and it led them to some shocking finds!

Of course there are also high rating given by paid reporters and so called critrics. Therefore always read reviews with a pinch of salt. Do your own homework lah. Social media is just for leisure.

Thats why if cannot put all the egg in 1 basket.

Do businesses  esp fnb cannot purely rely on Internet to gain customer.

Real gold not scare of fire. If your quality and service is good. Customers will  automatically  do u justice. 

I am sure this  is not the only cases. Confirm got other business use similar tactics on their rivals

Yes, very normal....... it has been the case with Google Reviews and TripAdvisor for many years, and difficult to counter.

Trick is to read through reviews with a sceptical eye and the truth usually lies somewhere in between.

wah....there are more cases where business buy fake 5 stars reviews. If you see a shop with more than usually amount of 5 stars reviews, better be careful. Just look at the person who posted the review, are they all posted one or two reviews only? Is this business bully consumers?

I must be a total boomer. Because I don't bother to look up these reviews anyway [laugh] Really got people read and believe ah?? Must be only the younger people, more naive.

So, troll efforts or not, no effect to market segment like me.

Eunice look like wild girl with tattooed forearms, why block her face, chio or not?? [laugh]
