Anyone who knows me would say these reviews are ridiculous and obviously not true, but they are harmful to my business as a freelancer. Is there anything I can do?

    Hi Pratik,

    Thank you for responding. I am a freelancer / growth marketing strategist. I have a great reputation. I do have excellent reviews and testimonials from real clients, former employers and coworkers on my LinkedIn page and my website. The person who is posting fake reviews is posting them on sites that rank higher than mine. I don't have a brick and mortar location, so I don't have daily customers who can post new reviews on yelp or anything like that. I'm also getting emails from these sites asking me to pay thousands of dollars to have the fake reviews removed. I've checked into it. Apparently, it's legal for them to do that. I'm wondering if this is even is real person. Maybe these review companies post the reviews and then charge you to take them down? If anyone knows anything about this, please reach out. I welcome your feedback and help. Thank you!

    Hello Asrienne,

    I don't think you can do anything about it. The review presents, what and how your reader/customers felt about you/your product. If you continuous growing with good review from others, some also feel jealous from it and post wrong or fake review. You have to post another comment in reply that pass some positive energy on it or solve thier issues. Hope, it helpful.
