A website asks for free books from publishers. They then review those books, but all of the reviews are along the lines of “here’s what this book’s about,” not critical in any way. The book titles are linked to Amazon, where the website is an affiliate, so, they get money if you buy books they never negatively review.
Scam or not?
I thought nothing of it, but when I was trying to explain it, it started to sound scammy to me.
