    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
    https://www.reviews.io/company-reviews/store/trustpilot

    ... 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
