ProductReviewJobs.com (I urge you not to follow the link but for transparency I leave it here) which promotes connecting companies seeking product reviews with willing product testers and reviewers, is a SCAM.
The company behind this venture (arroyomedia.com) reached out to me via its affiliate managers offering me affiliate commission if I promote them.
At first I was intrigued as my website lives off readers and commission I create from them.
Communication with the affiliate team was bumpy but I thought nothing of it at first.
This is the norm in my industry as affiliates such as myself have to jump through several hoops if it comes to new partnerships.
I wrote a couple of blog posts on ProductReviewJobs.com (PRJ) doing my initial research on the internet.
What I completely failed to see is Trustpilot.com’s reviews.
Which were high when just looking at Google search results but after digging deeper in the last few days I noticed that the positive reviews were all fake.
Just Google “is productreviewjobs.com legit” and it should come up as a first result (at least at the time of writing).
You’ll see that there are a couple of middle Eastern country reviewers giving it 5 stars.
But when you look closer you’ll see that none of these make sense.
For example, one Trustpilot 5 star review came from a user in Pakistan stating:
“I recently purchased [product name] and I am so happy with my decision.
The quality is outstanding, and it has exceeded my expectations in every way.
I would highly recommend this product to anyone in the market for [product category].” “I recently had [service name] done and I couldn’t be happier with the results.
As you can clearly see, this review has nothing to do with anything PRJ offers.
For that matter, this “reviewer” didn’t even bother to edit his review and simple posted in mark up language.
Or another one:
I recently had the opportunity to try out the [Watch], and I must say, it has exceeded my expectations.
As a fashion enthusiast, I always appreciate a timepiece that not only tells the time but also adds a touch of elegance to my overall look.”
I mean, what does PRJ have to do with a watch or fashion?
These are clearly fake reviews that were paid for.
The only real reviews come from people who have actually tried the platform.
And they all ended up giving 2 stars or less.
Simple because there are no real offers, surveys or product testing involved.
All this company is trying to do is to get your email, spam you or get you to sign up to things in the process.
This post is rather short, but there is not much else to say.
DO NOT sign up to PRJ.
There are no real offers for surveys or companies looking to get people to test products.
I hope this helps!
