Norton Safe Web being pelted with FRAUDULENT reviews.

As of late, like my title indicates, Norton Safe Web is sustaining "heavy fire" from fraudsters attempting to over-inflate the rating for: I expound on this in my review which can be accessed here: https://safeweb.norton.com/reviews/341642

I'm just wondering how long it will take the Admin of SafeWeb to address this... we can only hope that there will be a faster response than was witnessed with the Kobber debacle. 

Regards,

H.B.

From what i can see as of tonight, 7/21/18, fraudulent reviews have been vanquished - - we will see how long this holds.  From experience, these people are persistent; like in the case of Brothersoft from back when, they will stop at nothing to over-inflate the rating of their site. 

Take care for now,

H.B.

Hello meerkat321

I will notify Safe Web again. I looked at the site. All those users had only 1 review and they were all for that 1 site.

Please stay tuned to this thread for a response from the Safe Web Team maybe on Sunday night after midnight EDT.

Have a Good Night and

Thanks.

Re: Norton Safe Web being pelted with FRAUDULENT reviews.

Yay! I'm glad you got rid of them! But, why is the site's rating now a 'Warning'? There are no actual 'viruses' on the site, it might be a fraud/scam but that doesn't mean it will directly harm your computer.

Hello Meeker

Well, what they are doing is conducting a scam. They are getting different people to rate the site and have them all give the top rating. Perhaps, they might be making up these reviews themselves. It is a possibility.that they could have been doing that.

Have a Good Night and

Thanks.

Hello meerkat321

Sorry about typing your name incorrectly. I should have copied, pasted like I usually do. It's easier on my eyes and safer also from making errors. I'm not a Symantec Employee, but I guess that was the best way of stopping what they were doing. They did try before to stop the action and it didn't work since it always started up again. If it stays blocked for a while, maybe they will learn their lesson.

Have a Good Night and

Thanks.

Re: Norton Safe Web being pelted with FRAUDULENT reviews.

Well, most reviews on the web say it's untrustworthy, but the site itself, it's probably safe. So, if it's just a fraud, maybe it would considered a phishing attack instead. Not a virus.

(I noticed you called me as 'meeker'. That's sorta cute, like I'm a meek meerkat.)
