Yes. I've reported it too but it doesn't seem to matter because of lack of evidence. Lately, some reviews that are coming in are SO vague that they could be about any similar product and noting particular is said that makes me believe it.
I know that people own things that EF doesn't carry and sometimes we have something and all of a sudden EF gets it and we review it. But I noticed also recently that new people have come in and put out reviews for an item(s) that EF JUST got in like the day before or exact day and the review is also vague and it makes me wonder. I just then vote the review what I feel it deserves, which is usually below somewhat useful, especially if the person has more than a few reviews and has ignored suggestions/tips on how to improve or get a mentor. But what really irks me is the people that point farm or think they are voting on the PRODUCT not the REVIEW and give the person an EU or U vote, thus, helping their rank. I saw someone comment on many reviews within seconds/mins with the same 3 words "it was good" and voted three of those vague reviews as EU then gave my Smart Wand review a lower vote! REALLY?! I know they were just doing tasks for points. But then this person's rank goes up and then they qualify for a higher price range in free product. It's irritating
I hate that I have become suspicious of some reviews but it makes me mad that some of us really take our time and put in effort and honesty in our reviews and someone wants to go and scam the site. Especially to become advanced and then get a free product or buyout discount and put out the bare minimum in their review, leave out important info and ignore people's suggestions on what to add or to get a mentor. It makes me sad that EF continues to let these people review and get the perks. I mean if you have 15 or more reviews out (heck, even 10) then I feel your rank shouldn't be below a 5 unless you have been inactive for a period of time.
I know we only get 50 points for reviews but you are also getting a 30% discount and the monthly free review, it is only fair to put effort into a quality review for such a giving site!
I just worry the slackers and scammers are going to ruin the review and points program for the rest of us that are honest.
