I would like to report a web resource "Yelp". 

Yelp allows anybody to create a business page, all you need to have is a phone number and a website. Some business owners take advantage of it. They create a lot of different business accounts which allows them to gain and maintain monopoly power in any industry. Businesses have fake names, fake addresses, fake business owner names. I will attach the letter that I have sent to Yelp directly based on the research of one company that I did but Yelp didn't reply with any actions. I believe that whatever is happening on Yelp is not acceptable and must stop. I am a business owner myself, my business is also listed on Yelp and I feel bond to not let this situation go because it affects business owners that are paying Yelp for advertising. I am hoping that Federal Trade Comission will investigate this matter too.
