Some of you have been letting us know about suspicious five star AND one star reviews of BBM for Android on Google Play. While there are many valid reviews a minority of them seem to be the same review in similar broken English. The users have Google+ accounts and need them to leave a review but still something fishy is going on. Thankfully BlackBerry has responded to AndroidCentral about the suspicious reviews and received the following response:
We have recently been made aware of a number of potentially fake five-star reviews of BBM for Android on Google Play. We do not approve of or condone such activities and are committed to working with Google to resolve this. There are also many genuinely great and useful reviews from our new BBM users on Google Play. We would like to encourage our passionate fans and users to continue to provide true assessments of the BBM experience through the proper channels.
They are clearly stating that they do not approve or condone these suspicious reviews and plan on looking into them. I am kind of curious to know who is behind them.
What is really odd is that they are leaving both 5 star and 1 star reviews with a message along the lines of:
"Thank you so much blackberry team. I was waiting this app. Its really great user friendly and smooth"
