Fake yelp review for Powderface, Oakland

This is a fake, shill review for Powderface ( ) cafe in Fruitvale Village, Oakland. The reviews were taking down by the Yelp staff because they originated from the same source.


How obviously stupid. Same reviews within 2 days from 1-hit wonders. They even compliment each other. They each gave 5 stars.


These are shill reviews from the owners of the store; trying to drum up business.

They then go out and write fake reviews of their competitors.


"OMG! Powderaddictpowderaddict" my ass.


The tone is the same - "Oh my gawd, I just discovered this place, why haven't I seen this before. Their Turkey brie sandwich is the bomb and everytime I come here, there is always something new. We're obviously better than cafe du monde, blah, blah,blah"

The writing is the same and linguistics is obviously from the same writer.


The screenshots were saved to show how pathetic they are.


To top it off, I despise the owner for what they did to my friend's business. When she was in the hospital for a threatened miscarriage, the owner goes off and tries to hire her employees aways. Thus, trying to induce stress on a woman who is close to losing her infant. That is close to being a baby killer as it gets. How low can you go?
