    A lot of them are at it in one way or another. Only got to look at trustpilots reviews for spark & bulb to see thousands of fake reviews

    How do you get the £10? Did you have to follow a certain link or could I just leave a review and email them asking them to add the credit to my account?

    You can't trust Trustpilot. Don't know why anyone would pay to put a review on that scam site.

    Trustpilot scores just 1.45 stars (out of 5) here

    ... and that is with trustpilot employees themselves writing some of the reports, according to the pop-up warning!

    I'm not a customer, but how can I get the £10 for writing them a good review?

    Do people really still take any notice of review sites? Countless numbers of happy customers that have reviewed once.

    I never give any reviews about anything or to anybody , just quickly delete Some firms are making much money by asking for reviews that why they operate
