MyWOT is rating thousands of websites everyday. The reason is that, the more ratings available on their website, the more useful their website would look like to the end user. So far sounds greats..right? But let's look at their system a little closer :
1) 90% of the ratings and comments are being written by a small group of powered users. (each rated around 100k-900k websites as we speak)
2) These users rates are not counted like yours and mine. Each of their rating will be equal to 2000 people. So a single click for them is just enough to take down a website's reputation from Green to Red.
3) If a victim of this reviewers complains to the management of the website (firstname.lastname@example.org), they will receive a template saying that if you disagree with the result go to the Forum and ask people to re-rate it. Oh yeah, forum is where these gangs dating. [continued below]....
..... Imagine, you have to call the criminals to come and help you when you are attacked by another criminal ? How does that sound?
Basically there is no customer service or anyone to care about your reputation on that website.
4) Why would these powered users attack businesses websites? The answer is, they earn money out of it. How they earn? They patrol around in the internet and approach businesses that are worried about their reputation on MyWOT. Ask them to pay (minimum $1000) to remove the negative ratings or take down a competitors reputation on MyWOT.

As far as I know there are a few campaigns started against the MyWOT fraud and people are raising awareness. Please share this with your friends and family and help spreading the word.
Do not trust MyWOT. Stay away from them.
