Scammers

I wonder what is the outcome of what was (maybe still is?) going on Amazon where scammers would create accounts using stolen personal data, order products to real addresses and then write reviews?

You don't have to be a data guru to find out accounts with the same name and address in the database that suddenly have different spending pattern and write reviews?
