Any names you care to share?

These online referral sites are always manipulated.
I have seen restaurant owners post great reviews to push the bad reviews out of site.
I have seen how shady contractors get a good standing with the BBB by just paying for it.

just that a few contractors, that I KNOW are sleazeballs, a couple mechanics that don't even exist anymore, they're all on there with GREAT reviews...
I guess it's just like CarFax, it's only as good as the data inputted by a human.
if they lie, you're screwed.

It sure is! Just use Yelp or the BBB for free. But even Yelp is full of false, planted ratings. They're easy to spot though.
