Beware of product reviews on Amazon..... [View all]

Was looking at something on Amazon, which has lots of positive reviews, and decided to check out the reviewers, which you can do by clicking on their name.
Many of the reviewers apparently wrote 10-12 product reviews in one day.
Product after product all reviewed on same day, with some phrases identical in all reviews.
So for instance, one reviewer wrote 10 reviews on Dec. 10, and then again on Jan. 15th for different products.

Normally you find reviews from the same customer with 1-2 reviews on one date, then a review a few days later, then one a week or more later.
But I am finding dozens of reviews by reviewers written all the dame day.

Check it out next time you are product searching on amazon for a popular item.
