2008_07_yelpwantedsmall.jpgIn a news exposé, business owners are growing increasingly sick of Yelp, and are calling the company out for extortion: "A customer had written a negative review ... So, about a week after that Yelp contacted us, and said, 'We noticed that you had some negative reviews, and we would like to help you with that...If you pay $350 a month',' said Seaton. So she paid for five months, a total of $1750. Seaton said some of her negative reviews were moved to the bottom." [CBS via Eater]
