Fake Reviews - Reciprocal Review Group
1
I am trying to notify Google about reciprocal review spam from a group of business owners. The profile that I found the fake reviews is Adam French, L.Ac. While a few of his reviews are legit, those on the following list are believed to be fake:  


If you review the contributions from each of these reviewers, you will start to see that there are a lot of overlaps where each business reviewed the other and the businesses are located across the country. The wording on each is quite similar. 

Please advise on how to notify Google about these fake reviews.
