25% of all submitted Yelp reviews fake



A quarter of all reviews the online directory and consumer website receives, are not real. Opinions that are submitted are often skewed. Yelp’s automated review filter suppresses about 25% of the reviews it receives because they are suspicious. A spokesperson mentioned they are quick to get rid of fake comments. In New York 19 firms were fined for more than £200,000 for posting faked reviews.
