Flagging a review

Question: If a contractor who was going to work with you had their contract terminated (who never received services and was never a customer) and then went on Google and left a 1 star review and an inappropriate comment, could that review be flagged according to the guidelines?

 

Also, if you flag that person's review, will they be notified that you have flagged it?

Hi Amber, You would have a tough time getting that review removed since the review is still about an experience with your company.

 

Flagging the review does not send a notification to the person who left the review.
