    Oh oh there are bunch of seller groups on wechat that offer free stuffs (most in the range of 15 to 30 dollars) for good reviews in the thousands. The “buyer” pays for the goods first and after receiving the goods, the buyer sends a screenshot of the review to the seller and receives rebate via wechat wallet after confirmation.

    Basically review farms.

    Regrettably i have participated in those groups. Occasionally you’d find some good stuff but most of them are quite crap. Free stuff for a handful of words? Pretty good deal. It’s like hoarding stuff without paying. some would find this thrilling even.

    Pretty sure 15000 is on the low end.
