Massive "click farm" scam uncovered - Can online product ratings be trusted?

Many click farms are set up in faraway locations like Russia and China, perhaps to avoid detection from U.S. government officials. Yet, it seems everyone has heard about click farms.

Now, there seems to be proof that these click farms sometimes have 10,000 or more cellphones hooked up. Then, bots get to work liking pages on social media sites.

Experts say much of the current digital manipulation is carried out in China and Russia
