How Does Clutch Define Fake or Fraudulent Reviews?

We do not allow reviews for made-up projects, reviews left by impersonators, or reviews with a conflict of interest. Fake reviews will result in a score deduction.

Fake or fraudulent reviews prevent buyers from making informed business decisions. Our team strives to eliminate artificial reviews to keep our platform useful for our readers. 

Examples of Fake or Fraudulent Reviews:

  • Made-up projects
  • Projects with a concealed conflict of interest
  • Misrepresentation or impersonation of a reviewer’s identity
