An employee at Belkin was found on Mechanical Turk shelling out money to people that would write a good review for a Belkin product whether or not they even owned the item. Belkin responded to all of the negative commentary about these findings at their website.
We want to stress that this is an isolated incident and to re-instill trust with you, we have taken the following courses of action:
– We’ve acted swiftly to remove all associated postings from the Mechanical Turk system.
– We’re working closely with our online channel partners to ensure that any reviews that may have been placed due to these postings have been removed.
Sounds like they’re getting rid of the evidence if you ask me… All the more so if you take this into account. Wait, who am I to judge – for all we know a different company set this whole thing up…
