1.0 out of 5 stars Overpriced Junk, May 8, 2013
This review is from: True Utility TU104 FlashStash with Waterproof Capsule for Cash and Small Valuables (Sports)
The name, look, and packaging suggest a tough, quality product that will last for years. This product is worth about a dollar, definitely no more. True to its claim, it has a place to store some cash. Beyond that, the paint immediately started scratching off when I put it on my keyring and in my pocket... like within an hour. The metal is very cheap, the paint is cheap, and the cap threads are poorly cut. Unless you're buying it for $3 or less, I do not recommend this extremely cheaply produced product.

So two reviewers, one with a 5-star rating and one at a 1-star rating review a product. The average of 1 and 5 used to be, under old-school math, exactly 3. Somehow, magically, that math isn't working here. Somehow the average of 1+5 is only two here at Amazon. Problem with Amazon's rating system? No, problem with one reviewer rating the same product three times, dragging the overall rating down another full star. That is not what this system is all about.

Oh my! Upon further research, it seems this "Philip Williams" chap found six different versions of this offering, and all on 8 May 2013 he rated them all identically, including the word-for-word narrative and the 1-star rating. Yet he's not listed as a verified Amazon purchaser of any of them. So, what are the chances that this is an honest customer review (or that any of the six are *honest *customer *reviews), with questions arising about all three of those words: is it *honest, is he a real *customer, and should this be considered a *review?

And isn't it interesting that he suddenly popped up out of nowhere on 8 May 2013 to review six versions of this one product, but never reviewed any other products, before or since, on Amazon, ranking him as the 15 million, nine hundred four thousand, seven hundred eighty ninth reviewer in all of Amazon?!

I call bogus!
