An open database has revealed the identities of over 200,000 individuals who appear to be involved in Amazon fake product review schemes. Names, email addresses, and PayPal details were exposed and left online.
On Thursday, Safety Detectives researchers revealed that the server, public and online, contained 7GB of data and over 13 million records appearing to be linked to a widespread fake review scam.
The database contained records involving roughly 200,000 – 250,000 users and Amazon marketplace vendors including user names, email addresses, PayPal addresses, links to Amazon profiles, and both WhatsApp and Telegram numbers, as well as records of direct messages between customers happy to provide fake reviews and traders willing to compensate them.
