It's unfortunate that something like this is needed. How are you detecting scams/shady sellers, @saoud_khalifah?

@rrhoover Thank you for your comment, Ryan! It is unfortunate however the scale of the problems are rapidly increasing on eCommerce from everything we've seen in the last 5 years since Fakespot's inception. We leverage machine learning to detect shady and scammy sellers. We have amassed over 8 billion reviews that are used for our unsupervised and supervised training for models that looks for specific signals for sellers that may sell you a counterfeit, diverted or fake products. We also have identifiers for sellers that may have had their accounts hacked/hijacked (a bigger problem than you may know). If you're curious why Fakespot Guard marked a seller as a "Warning" or "Caution", hover over our badge and we will list of reasons that specify why the determination was made.

Hello ProductHunters, we are excited to announce Fakespot Guard, real time protection that lets you know if you're buying from an unscrupulous 3rd party seller that can end up with you getting a counterfeit, fake or used/damaged products. We have seen a sharp rise in these problems in the last couple of months and are excited to leverage our proprietary artificial intelligence technology to protect our users when they shop online from eCommerce fraud. Fakespot Guard supports Amazon, Walmart and eBay. Our technology will detect fly-by-night sellers that have hacked accounts, for example, and many other tactics that these types of sellers use. If there are any questions or feedback, we'd love to hear it. We are constantly working on improving Fakespot and Fakespot Guard, so please leave a comment!

Lovely idea, but if your product works, what's the rationale behind having it as a browser extension, rather than integrating it within the marketplaces for which it works? - I'm not the biggest fan of adding browser extensions with permissions to harvest data.

@arseniyw Browser extensions are powerful mediums for our technology to provide real-time results as our users browse. Static or marketplace integration would not have the same effect and with everything that is fraud, real-time detection beats all other types of analysis (static, etc).
