Strange Arabic Comments on My app

I'm getting a lot of strange Arabic comments on one of my free apps (which is English -only app). All the comments when translated using google translate are gibberish words. I notice this 'gibberish' app commenting on other apps too but I wasnt sure if i was jus tnot understanding the lanugage or what. Seems like a Spam issue. Hope BB will take a look.

I you are certain they are gibberish, you can just deny the review via the Vendor Portal. If I am not mistaken, I think somebody on BlackBerry will also review these denied reviews (maybe not in detail, but just to check if they are not for gaming the system). And if (s)he does, maybe the spam will be noticed and investigated.


A like is always appreciated,
but a nomination for BB Elite even more :-)

Maybe you should contact Vendor Support if you want that. Just click at the bottom right of the Vendor Portal on Vendor Support. Explain what you saw, and the spam you received. And maybe add on which apps you saw it also. Maybe it all came from the same spam users, and then the can do something about it.
