I have been an amazon customer since 2008 and have purchased many thousands items and have written just as many reviews of 4 stars or more. Those that I do not rate above three stars is due to quality or false statements made by the seller on the product being described.

Recently I received one of my many purchases and tried to write a review and was told that I violated the review guidelines. No where are any of my reviews available anymore. They are all gone. Here is a photo of the explanation that I get each time I try to write a review.

My helpful rating was 685.

I have tried to contact amazon without any success. No where on amazon website is there any option to contact customer service to ask for assistance why all my reviews were deleted.

Product or Service Mentioned: Amazon Website.

Reason of review: Product reviews been deleted.

Monetary Loss: $1.

Preferred solution: Let the company propose a solution.

Amazon Cons: Could not find help on why all my product reviews were deleted.

I wonder if I reviewed a product from a seller that actually was giving out compensation in exchange for reviews, and then amazon just erroneously assumed that all the reviews were fake. If so, that's not fair that real reviewers are just getting scooped up and lumped in with the fake reviewers! Incredible how they can just make a final determination like that when they are clearly wrong since I know I've never written a fake review or gotten anything in exchange.


UPDATE: I just got an email saying I can no longer post anything because I violated their terms by receiving compensation in return for a review! I have never received any compensation in any form, discount, gift card, product, or anything at all!!!

I've been a customer since 2003 and most of my purchases are from amazon. I didn't even have THAT many reviews (like 100+) considering how much I buy from them. And the email said the decision is final! I just can't believe they can just accuse you of something and make that sort of determination when you are completely innocent of what they are accusing you of!

Clearly their process is flawed.

The best part is that amazon sanctions their own "Vine Voice" reviewers who actually get tons of free products in exchange for their reviews and you can see that those reviewers reviews are skewed. Unbelievable.

@Kindle Customer

Yep, same here. I have done none of what I have been accused of, and yet the decision is final... Moving on to YouTube with my reviews...


I have the same issues, all reviews deleted the same day as yours! I have been online with Amazon trying to resolve it, but nobody has a clue. Any update?


It's not just about the reviews. I found out all my reviews disappeared when I tried to ask a question about a product on the product page of an item I was interested in purchasing.

It doesn't let me leave comments/questions to other reviews, and doesn't let you ask the community questions on the product page.

It said you must be in good standing to leave a comment/reviews. That's when I went to my profile and noticed all my reviews were gone.


Same thing happened to me. I just realized it this past week, but I don't know how long ago they deleted them since it's been a little while since I last wrote a review.

I contacted amazon 2x so far and they promised me someone will get back to me. Still waiting. I've been a customer since 2003 and wrote over 100 reviews and had a high helpful rating. I've never been paid or given any free products for my reviews.

I have no idea why this happened, except maybe a seller didn't like one of my reviews and reported it. I don't know. All my reviews have been truthful, honest, and well written. No profanity or anything like that.

I'm such a good amazon customer that they twice gave me free replacement Kindles after I called them trying to fix problems with mine after the warranty period ended. I never asked for them, wasn't angry or anything. They just tried to help me fix the problem, but after they couldn't, they offered me a free replacement!

I was surprised but grateful, of course. I can't help but think it must be some dishonest seller flagging my reviews or something like that.


You have to write to community-help@amazon.com and tell them what happened. I've did this 3 times and they have restored all my reviews, but a month later they were all gone again. Right now it's being investigated as to why it keeps happening to me.


Thanks anonymous! I actually just created a Squarespace website in about 20 minutes and started to make my first few dollars is from affiliate links and I'm adding more monetization from Pirate torrent sites! Thanks again my autistic friend!




Who cares if your banal and lame reviews are removed... No one but you.

Are reviews the sum of your life?

If you want to review @#$# start a blog and monetize it by joining the Amazon affiliate program. At least you're getting paid this way and actually have something to show for it.


Holy crap! I'm now up to 2,500!!!!

Thanks random stranger! surely you're doing the same my not overweight at all autistic friend!


Dude thank you!!! I paid off my car loan!!!!


Holy crap now I'm.at 26k a day!


Same exact thing happened to me yesterday as well. I haven't even left a review for anything in months.

I received an email yesterday asking me to "Start reviewing your purchases" and when I clicked on it, it stated the same thing everyone else has posted. Yet it still lists myself in the top 2k reviewer catagory. Makes absolutely no sense. I don't even know who to contact.

Call customer service? Anyone here have any suggestions regarding who to contact?


Same thing has just happened to me. I went to Amazon Live Chat and spoke to someone, he's passed it on to the technical support and said I'd be emailed within 24 hours.

Okay, so it's not the end of the world, but I have been an Amazon customer for 10+ years and have left thousands of good reviews - I was their top 2k reviewer even o_O *** I love leaving my reviews! This is the message I keep getting when I try to post a review: Your previous review of this product did not comply with our Customer Reviews Guidelines. Amazon does not permit reviews from customers whose relationship to the product or seller may be perceived as biased. Biased??

Makes no sense! Also they have deleted every review I have left over the last decade or so!


Same thing happened to me ALL my reviews are gone and i cant leave a review for ANY product now. I just bought a ton of stuff and wanted to review the seller and the item and it wont let me leave any.


They’ll erase your reviews and prevent you from reviewing any products going forward, but you’re still free to purchase from their site without obstruction. So, I suppose, Amazon now more effectively mirrors life: shut up and give us your money.


Happened to me too. I had over 100 reviews and amazon deleted all of them.

To be honest I reviewed in batches, 20-30 in one go. So Im guessing their robot picked up a strange patterned and deleted all of them.

So I contacted them and they told me to wait for 24 hours. Will see what happens.


My reviewer ranking is 8,500 and something. I had the same problem.

Not only do I review novels, I review things I purchase as well. Yesterday I tried to review an item I bought and got the same message. All of my reviews and helpful votes are gone, and I can't review nothing. Amazon is no help.

I had over a thousand of review and busted my butt writing them, all for nothing. I can't figure out what to do. Reviewing was my hobby, and all of my hard work down the drain. All of my reviews, and helpful votes disappeared.

I am so mad with amazon, I don't even want to use it any more. A lot of honest reviewers are being removed.


Same thing happened to me. I use discount sites like vipon and Snagshout that discount items but I also purchase full price.

Amazon community guidelines state that you cannot review an item that you’ve received for free or for compensation or for a company you are affiliated with, for an author you are affiliated with etc. Not only have I meticulously followed these rules, (despite being offered free things on a daily basis from sellers) I had climbed to the top 2k reviewers. This took me some 9 years or so. Reviews are my hobby, all of my reviews are honest and I rarely review anything I get at a discount anyway.

Even so, discounted items can be reviewed as long as they are not free as stated in the review guidelines. If I receive a discounted item, and the item is bad, I leave an honest review. I still paid for the item, usually at close to full cost and I’m just as upset as anyone if the item is poor quality. But I also buy things without a discount all the time.

I review those pretty often, including pictures, videos etc. I’ve literally put hundreds of hours into this and I am so pissed! I contacted amazon and was told to wait 24 hours for an email.

I don’t think I’m getting my reviews back. And I’m wondering exactly what the incentive is for people to follow these guidelines if honest reviewers have all their reviews deleted.
