If you’re like me, when you make an online purchase you try your best to research the product beforehand. I personally have never trusted many of the online reviews. Amazon insists that it is doing all it can to deal with the problem. Although I may not trust them I still read through a few ad sometimes visit Youtube to find additional information of that particular product.
According to Global News, published on Mar 12, 2019 the U.S. Federal Trade Commission has successfully brought the first-ever case against a supplement company that allegedly boosted its Amazon ratings through a third-party firm that crafts fake “verified” reviews. According to the settlement, Cure Encapsulations sold a supplement on Amazon touted as an “appetite-suppressing, fat-blocking, weight-loss pill.” One of the ingredients in the supplement is an Indonesian plant called garcinia cambogia that has been linked to acute liver failure.
