Trustpilot commences legal proceedings to combat fake reviews


On Monday, the review platform Trustpilot announced that it had commenced legal proceedings against Global Migrate, a United Kingdom-based immigration agency. Trustpilot claimed that Global Migrate had been continually abusing the Trustpilot platform by soliciting fake reviews and failed to respond to repeated enforcement action.

Trustpilot suggests that its Fraud & Investigations analysts found evidence to suggest that more than 700 fabricated reviews had been submitted to Global Migrate’s Trustpilot profile.

Global Migrate is the first company against which Trustpilot has commenced legal proceedings. The case is part of the company’s recently announced strategy to address those businesses who are misusing its review platform.

Tim James-Matthews is instructed by Trustpilot in the proceedings.
