Rogue Amazon employees are reportedly peddling bad review removals and more.

That’s according to this report from CNBC, which reveals that some Amazon employees are offering various services to third-party sellers on the platform through groups on Telegram, WhatsApp, and Facebook.

One group on Telegram has over 13,000 members, CNBC reports, allowing sellers to pay an Amazon insider to recover their accounts, get information on a competitor, and even remove negative reviews on a product. This kind of dealing isn’t anything new — a 2018 report from The Wall Street Journal suggested that some employees accepted bribes to get access to internal sales data.
