Did Toymail deceive customers by having individuals leave

5 star reviews for Toymail's Mailmen

without disclosing their connection with Toymail?

Toymail's (Mailman) Rochester's Amazon Reviews

Toymail Amazon review stats.PNG

Out of the 31 reviews of Rochester one of  Toymail's (Mailmen) 

15 were 5 stars, 3 were 4 stars, 2 were 3 stars, 1 was a 2 star, and 9 were 1 stars

As shown below at least 6 individuals,of the 15 individuals,who left  5 star reviews 

for the Rochester (Mailman) had connections with Toymail

and DID NOT disclose their connections!

(That is 40% of the 5 star reviews for Rochester) 

Please also note: that none of the reviews below are from a verified purchaser
