What happens when you start naming names?

Update:  Friday, 22 August 2014 -- Both of the new Goodreads accounts for fiverr seller "Cailin Koy" have been deleted. 



Just yesterday I posted information about a known fiverr seller (I try very hard not to call them "reviewers") who was putting up reviews on both Goodreads and Amazon, in violation of both sites' Terms of Use as well as U.S. Federal Trade Commission guidelines.




Since then, that particular fiverr seller has made some changes.


She has removed her portfolio of screen shots of her reviews on Amazon and Goodreads.


She has changed her account name on Goodreads:




They know what they're doing, and they know it's wrong.  They know their objective is to deceive and cheat readers -- and to profit from that deception.
