We recently picked up the free extension "Spam Killer" from Mgt-Commerce and were surprised how easy the set-up and configuration was. Within 10 minutes we were up and running and so far it seems to block 99% of our questionable reviews. We highly recommend!

Review by USAKilts | March 1, 2013
We have been plagued by spam product reviews on our eCommerce site. We have bought and tried many products that said that they would stop spam, filter spam, and none of them worked. We finally tried Spam Killer and it SOLVED our problems. The installation was simple and painless and it integrated perfectly into our Magento store. Since we have have this module installed, we have gotten 0 spam messages, when we would normally get 100+ a day! Great Product, and I would HIGHLY recommend it. - USAKilts

Review by Yasitha Bogamuwa | January 21, 2013
This is the best spam filtering tool I ever found. Thank you so much.
Review by Mike White | December 14, 2012
This tool is totally awesome, we where getting spammed every day with all sorts of nonsense. I don't really even understand why folks make bots to send that junk but Spam Killer solved the problem perfectly. I was going through the process of adding recaptcha and had done a few hours work to get it up and running. Then I found this, it took seconds to install and i dropped captcha completely. Thanks a lot mgt-commerce. I will be checking your site from now on to look at potential tools for all my magento stores!
Review by Nate | December 10, 2012
We were getting about 200 spam comments a week. This product has blocked almost all of them. Definitely has reduced the workload!
Review by Mick B | November 20, 2012
I had a spammer/bot sending one spam email per day through my magento contact form to the site's owner. The site owner's mail server was recognizing it as spam and bouncing it back to my server. This had the potential to give my server a bad name as a spam sender. I installed Spam killer, created an Askimet account (had done this before for Wordpress sites), then tested with the content from some of the bounced spams. Askimet recognised every one as spam and refused to send them. Awesome! I have received no more bounced spam messages from my web site client's mail server for 4 weeks since installing Spam Killer. Human users of the contact form receive the same smooth Contact Form experience as they did before I installed the Spam Killer. Spam Killer solved my spam problem with no negative side effects, and its free.
Review by Brad | November 12, 2012
We were getting (literally) 2 to 3,000 spam reviews a day - we now get 1 to 2 legitimate reviews that we have to sort through every couple hours, NO spam so far since installing. Couldn't be happier.
Review by Joseph Fulton | November 1, 2012
Works out of the box but my site isn't live yet so I have it disabled for now as but I'm sure it works great, then I can write a more accurate review.
Review by Ashraf | October 8, 2012
Akismet is next to nothing in this business. It is simply the best. Since I installed it and activated the key, never Recieved spams since then. That is far better than CAPTCHA or other services. Definitly recommended. Just remember one thing in the activation process : 1. First paste the key and do not click submit or activate button or whatever. 2. Second, click on Save 3. When save is done, now click on Submit or Test or activate button (don't remember the label of the button, but I am sure you get the picture). Cheers
