Suspicious Review Reporting Thread « : June 11, 2013, 02:43:13 AM »
Hey everyone-

Lets use this thread to record reviews which we find suspicious.  Just post them here and we can look into them or save them for later checking-in on.

First is: http://supplementreviews.com/american-muscle/warpath - Klutch401 and NaturalOne.

Can't find anything proving their relationship yet.  Posted a reply on each and heard nothing back.

Already looked into this awhile back.  Nothing substantial, but my gut says it just doesn't smell right.
That which does not kill me, makes me stronger!

You have to fall in love with the pain if you ever want to say hello to the growth.

This is a great idea.
Most problems in lifting can be solved by either pulling harder, or pushing harder.

Yeah, its sad.  That's why we have things like reputation, review authenticity, expert reviews program, etc.  We're all about transparency here, so we'll do everything we can to expose the truth.

Things like this put this site world's ahead of the others out there.  I flat out don't trust the majority of the reviews on other sites because they lack the checks & balances that this one does

Great idea. I have a feeling many product reviews will show up on this list in the mere future  ::)
My russian coach once told me, "Dont say What if. Saying what if/s is like me saying, what if I told you my Grandma had a dick."

HER primal cut review: http://supplementreviews.com/forum/index.php?topic=25484.0  Good eye.  She didn't even make it hard to spot.

http://supplementreviews.com/flex-fitness/titan-stack

i noticed flex fitness reviews are getting 10s and 9s, and that the people writing these reviews are consistently being the only ones plus repping each other.

SWmachine, Burkhead13, guardian89, JD77, sk8erdoug.

they could all be legit, but something seems fishy about how they all seem to only rep each other, and how they all have one consistency in their reviews, being that they give the Titan or Beast stack straight 10s.

Yeah, I'm not going to lie.  It does look quite suspicious.  Either it just happened by coincidence, or they do a really good job to make it look legit.  Couldn't find a single link back to the company.  My guess is that they just told their closest fanboys to come post a review.  But can't prove anything.

yeah prob need to keep an eye on this person also. Fits in with that other crew...mentioned titan on a few threads already, but I see he also posted reviews on other products so who knows...I think the statement about how much weight he gained (18lb's) and in only on day 3 seemed outlandish though.

A lot of people are afraid of heights. Not me, I'm afraid of widths.

Our health always seems much more valuable after we lose it.

Gained 18 lbs in 3 days?

Wow, both Hulk and Abomination would be proud.

Tom, isn't there some way to delete ridiculous claims like this?
