Eagle's Landing apartments uses illegal shills.

I've never patronised them but I'm really tired of their tactics used to generate so-called "independent" fake "reviews" of their apartments across many websites, from craigslist to apartmentratings.com. On top of that, I wouldn't expect this to be illegal per se, they must spam craigslist with like 6-10 ads every day, at the expense of legitimate ads from poor students trying to find a decent sublet or subletter.

What are the laws on shilling in Virginia? Considering they routinely woo UVA students, is there any way to pursue legal action against them? I want to see unethical companies like these put out of business.

Needless to say, if they are this unethical in their advertising, one must wonder what horrors their actual service must be like.
