According to the post by Calvin Reid, Amazon is cracking down on authors and publishers who have been determined to be abusing (gaming) the KDP system. Amazon has begun arbitration complaints against three people (one of whom uses a total of three names). Amazon also named in the complaints the companies owned by the three people. Amazon accuses the people and their companies of generating fake reviews and fake readers for authors and publishers' ebooks. These fake reviews and readers were used to fraudulently inflate reviews and page reads to increase the authors and publishers' royalty/income payments.
|That was a very bad thing you did.|
Panzer says, "Hmm ... When will you humans learn? You can't cheat Amazon. Sooner or later you'll get caught and have to pay the price."
