Business is attempting to buy positive reviews

A business messaged me on a freelance site asking for me to leave a positive review on Google for them. It appears that they have approached others as well and some have taken them up on their offer. I have already reported the user to the freelance site. Here is a photo of the message they sent me:asking for paid review.JPG

The link redirects to leaving a review here.




EDIT: It appears OnCabs has a few locations throughout the US/North American on Google Businesses although they don't have any physical locations. Other locations I have found: Las Vegas, Vancouver, Honolulu, Los Angeles. All display the similar pattern of the occasional 1 star review calling it a scam and then many vague 5 star reviews all within a few days of each other.
