How can I trust the reviewers?

The main advantage of our directory is the GlobalNet community. We display the reviewer’s name, title, and company for most reviewers which provides you the trust and confirmation the review is legitimate. Soon, reviewers can choose to be anonymous that display only reviewer ‘job title’ and ‘type of company’. If any questions arise to the legitimacy of a review, these are immediately evaluated by the team at who makes contact with the reviewer and validates the experience represented in the review.
