This site has begun to buy THOUSANDS of good reviews. There is a lot of SCAM on him. Previously, a warning message came out from WOT. Now thay come the purchase of reviews. This is a rating manipulation. Moderators, do something.

We forum moderators have no authority over scorecard issues. We cannot alter scorecards nor can we see any details beyond what any other WoT user can see. Please report your concerns about scorecard manipulation with your evidence to the WoT support staff (support@mywot.com). Several members of the WoT users' community sometime perform excellent investigations of sites which buy dishonest reviews, so perhaps this thread will get their attention.

Based upon rankings, funpay.ru (Alexa Rank: 15284) seems to be even more popular than WoT (Alexa Rank: 19914).

Members should not trust any site which has thousands of suspicious reviews or fake social media followers.
In the past, the software would've detected this manipulation. Sadly, it has been altered too much, and isn't as effective as it was.
I've reported this scorecard.

Just a heads up, funpay.ru is similar to g2a in that it allows selling of peoples accounts (stolen or otherwise), and should not be trusted by anyone.

Good to see you, and thank you for the info!

Unfortunately since the original admin left no-one is able (or willing) to deal with manipulation, or block spammers / scammers from creating hundreds of accounts.

Hey,
We are aware of this situation and this website.
Since we suspect this might be a new method of scamming - we are looking into and also are using it as a test case to improve our algorithm's recognition and accuracy.
We will take the necessary and relevant actions as soon as we are done with our internal inspection into the issue.

This scorecard is still being manipulated. Why haven't you locked the scorecard to prevent further abuse?
