One of the worst examples yet of a fake and malicious review on Google Maps has been rapidly removed after KwikChex verified the facts.
Online PR News – 23-March-2010 – – Storm Photography of Colchester in the UK had a malicious review posted on Google maps a month ago (16th Feb) and had not managed to have it deleted.
At first glance the review appeared to have come from another photography business in Crewe, Cheshire.
In fact, this company, Cream Wedding Photography was an even bigger victim of malicious Google Review posting.
KwikChex had verified that both businesses are reputable. A third party mounted a campaign which makes it appear that Cream were posting insults and spam on photographers websites across the UK. Cream have published the facts on their website www.creamphoto.co.uk in a bid to protect their own reputation.
KwikChex sent an independent verification report to Google and the offending review in this case was removed 10 minutes later.
We would like to thank Google on this occasion for their rapid response and urge them to continue responding to our authenticated notifications in this way.
