When would VouchedFor remove a review?
In the rare case we remove reviews, these are the circumstances that it would take place
Genuine, independent reviews of the advisers on the VouchedFor website are a vital element of the VouchedFor service. We want VouchedFor customers to trust the authenticity of the site and have a fair approach to selecting a Financial Adviser, Accountant or Solicitor that is right for them. However, if a review is abusive in nature, or contains any profane language then it will be removed from the site. Unless there are other exceptional circumstances, a review will not be removed from the site if it has been verified.
I verified a review by accident
If the reviewer is not a client, we can remove a review from the site. You can contact us at email@example.com if you have done this by accident, we will get in contact with the reviewer to investigate the issue for you.
I don't recognise this particular reviewer
Select 'report content issue'. We will send an e-mail to the reviewer, asking them to verify the adviser-client relationship.
Abusive or discriminatory in nature
We will not tolerate reviews that are abusive or discriminatory in nature. We allow clients to speak freely on matters, but remove content that appears to purposefully target advisers with the intention of degrading or shaming them. This includes, but is not limited to:
- Sharing personal information in order to blackmail or harass
- Hate speech, prejudiced language, threats or personal insults that are unrelated to the service being reviewed
- Bad language
If we deem a review to be abusive, it will be removed from all public pages on VouchedFor.
Review verification checks
At VouchedFor, we have a team that make compliance checks across VouchedFor. In certain cases, reviews can be removed after investigations.
Reviewer Requests Removal
In the rare event that a client who wrote a review requests to have the review edited or removed, we will assist with this. This will only be actioned if the request to do so is received from the same email address as the one that the initial review was associated with.
