How Does Your Negative or Bad Review Get on Consumer Affairs, to Begin With?
Before we begin this journey to remove a negative review from Consumer Affairs, let's understand what constitutes a negative review. Acquaint yourself with these four elements of defamation:
- The truth
- An opinion
- Agree on consent
- Provide the privilege
The party that published the negative review had to go through a rigorous process in creating the review as it has now been posted on your business page within the Consumer Affairs Terms of Service. The online moderator for Consumer Affairs has either allowed this negative review to slip through the cracks and be published, or the review met all criteria per the Consumer Affairs Publishing Policy, and the review contained at least one of the elements mentioned above.
The majority of negative and defamatory reviews are going to fall into the “opinion” category so keep that in mind as we go forward.
Why You Should Report All Fake Reviews
Reporting fake reviews that you receive on Consumer Affairs is not about your ego or trying to prove a point, it is about:
- Providing accurate feedback. Making sure the information that the wider world receives about your business is fair and accurate.
- Protecting your business from slander. People will get the wrong impression about who you are and how you operate if you are constantly bombarded by fake reviews that make your business appear a certain way.
Three Different Issues You Will Encounter to Get a Bad Review Removed From Consumer Affairs
Consumer Affairs has put itself in a position by carefully worded policies and procedures where once the review has been published it stays published. That's going to mean an uphill battle to get it deleted. Most, if not all, small to medium-sized business owners will fight to the bitter end to protect their company's reputation, status within the community, and as an authority in the particular field they do business in.
Let's look at the three roadblocks you are going to encounter when trying to protect your company's reputation and immediate future.
1. Consumer Affairs Strict No-Deletion Policy
Instead of a liberal deletion policy to remove false, malicious, and negative reviews that can potentially destroy a company, Consumer Affairs lets these negative accusations stay on their website indefinitely causing long-term damage to an otherwise thriving business.
2. Consumer Affairs Biased Advocacy
Take a look at this article from Truth in Advertising, where the NordicTrack company filed a complaint against Consumer Affairs. They filed the lawsuit against Consumer Affairs for essentially extorting and holding the business' hostage until they came up with the needed $9000 for set-up and $3000 per month to have only positive reviews published about their company as well a high ranking status within the Consumer Affairs platform.
The gist of the article was alluding to Consumer Affairs extorting businesses in return for an 'Accredited Partner' status while companies that did not pay the exuberant fees were slammed with damaging reviews. Makes you wonder who Consumer Affairs is advocating for, right?
3. Unable to Dispute False or Defamatory Reviews
This further elaborates on the number two item above. Companies that refuse or cannot afford the set-up and monthly payments to Consumer Affairs were hit with 1.5 to 2-star reviews and damaging reviews. These situations that companies find themselves in with Consumer Affairs' Pay to Play mentality reads like the script of your average mob/mafia movie.
