Remove Fake Reviews From Disgruntled Clients the Easy Way

Real reviews from customers who enjoyed your service or products can be great for business. Sometimes, however, disgruntled clients can leave negative remarks that work against you. In this case, it's wise to remove fake reviews from disgruntled clients and leave your record unblemished.

If you're having trouble getting these reviews removed, or aren't sure how to go about doing so, DoNotPay can help. We'll work to get any negative, false statements from dissatisfied customers erased from the platform they're posted on.

Process for Flagging a Fake Review

Of course, the process may vary from one platform to the next. You won't have exactly the same steps for removing Google reviews, taking down photos, or eradicating a negative remark from Yelp.

In general, though, the process for flagging a fake review only requires a few simple steps. They’re described in the table below.

The usual steps to flag a fake review:
  1. Log into your account.
  2. Monitor your reviews.
  3. Flag a review that requires removal.
  4. Report the review in question to the platform and indicate why it is not accurate.

The support team will take a look at the review in question and determine if it's deemed appropriate or not. They may leave it up if you have not provided an accurate statement or evidence as to why you believe it is false. That is why it is so important for you to not only flag it, but also offer context as to why you did so. 

Do Reviews Ever Get Deleted Automatically?

Yes, reviews may get deleted automatically if they go against a website's terms of service. For example, you may see a review eliminated if it:

  • Is determined to be a fake review from a disgruntled client or customer
  • Uses foul language
  • Involves hate speech
  • Comes from a suspicious profile

The automatic removal process may vary between companies. While Amazon works to eliminate false narratives promptly, Facebook may take longer to determine how accurate a statement is or find false profiles, just for example.

Measures to Take If the Site Doesn't Remove the Fake Review Promptly

If you're struggling to get fake reviews made by disgruntled clients removed from the platform, you will want to reach out to customer service directly. Explaining the situation to a real person can be more beneficial than simply clicking on some responses and leaving it up to a bot to assess.

Can I Sue a Platform?

It may be possible to sue if you do not get the response you are looking for. Having evidence of conversations between you and the party in question can help. DoNotPay offers a Sue Now product that helps you with the paperwork and filing for small claims court.

Can I Disable Reviews Instead?

You may be able to simply disable the review section instead. That way, no reviews show up, including the fake or negative one that was listed. This may be wise to do for a little while until the negative remark can be taken down.

Why Would Someone Leave a Fake Review?

Sometimes, disgruntled clients want to hurt the business that they feel slighted them. Say someone did not receive their product in a timely manner. They may bad mouth customer service and say they received a poor product because of it.

People leave fake reviews on competitor sites as well. If someone sells a similar product, they may ask friends to leave false reviews so they can boost their own business instead. It's best to provide the best customer service you possibly can so the good statements you receive outweigh any possible bleak ones.
