Yelp Wanted

2008_07_yelpwantedsmall.jpgThe growing number of Yelp horror stories isn't isolated to the Bay Area, as seen by a SoCal restaurant owner who has noticed some suspicious activity. It's a long letter worth a read, but here's a snippet: "I receive lots of calls from Yelp asking for money. I always say no ... But strangely, a bad review seems to appear shortly after each phone call from a Yelp sales rep. The review that I wrote to Yelp to complain about appeared shortly after my last decline to pay. While I can't know for sure the source of any review, I find it coincidental and ugly." [~ELA~]
