For Our Users:
Go Overseas takes review fraud very seriously. We dedicate significant time and resources toward ensuring that the content and reviews on Go Overseas reflect the real experiences of real people. If we determine users have submitted fraudulent reviews for a program, there are several consequences:
- Removal of the review from Go Overseas
- Suspension of the user from Go Overseas
- Permanent removal of the user from Go Overseas
We also encourage users to carefully consider the impact of their reviews. The best reviews contain useful information about the program and their personal experience. Personal attacks will not be tolerated. Carefully consider the impact of your review. Most program providers are not large companies and negative reviews may have a significant impact. Direct, fair, honest and detailed reviews help users make more informed decisions and also help providers improve their programs. If you think aspects of your program can be improved, communicate this clearly and directly both in the review, and in personal correspondence with the provider.
Go Overseas reserves the right to determine the validity of reviews left by users to ensure they were an actual participant in the program.
