I just wanted to share the following with all my fellow #reviewers.

Just had a seller pitch me, offering a free backpack in exchange for my review. I said sure, and when he replied with the code, first of all it wasn’t 100% off any more – he’d changed it to just be discounted.
Second of all – and what really bothered me- is he also listed specific reviews on his product that he wanted me to go up vote.
DO NOT be afraid to tell these sellers off when they are in clear violation of Amazon’s Community TOS – and avoid having anything to do with them beyond that so you don’t risk your own account.
Chances are, if they are this bold, they WILL be caught / are already being watched by Amazon and you do not want to be caught being affiliated with them in any way.
