    When you consider the volume of reviews generated for providers from certain agencies, it's clear that their clients are not writing most of them. There's nothing new about this observation, we've discussed this in detail before.

    However, it occurs to me that someone must be writing these reviews. And that service must be worth something. So my mischievous mind began to wander, wondering what such a service would be worth? Obviously, strong reviews lead to more trade for these places. They are, essentially, advertising. And providing that service has value. It also occurs to me that someone is probably already serving this function, and being paid for it.

    I'm not seriously contemplating changing careers. But I am curious about how this "scam" operates.
