They all do it, in every industry. You just have to take any reviews online with a grain of salt. Here's an article about a guy that was making 28k a month just writing fluff book reviews.

In order to write fluff book reviews, you need to have experience as a fluffer. You don't want to go there.

They don't 'all do it'. Some people actually do have integrity.
