Abstract (in about 300 words)

My presentation will be a talk, a talk on how fake accounts damage Wikipedia. With some of my own experience, I'll talk about the ways a 'bad guy' attempts to get his page on the Wikipedia. The truths behind dark internet, where the people can literally purchase a Wikipedia page about their company with some dollars. Businesses like these and the other ways Wikipedia has given a rise to the black market of articles needs to be thrown away. With all that, there needs to be a squad of people like us who are fighting against them to ensure quality content on Wikipedia. That's plain brief, this talk focuses on how the underground market works, their ways, services and finally the things that we can do to ensure the quality over quantity.
