When an SP (Service Provider: aka hooker, escort, etc) provides a third person recount of her/his services on a review board (i.e. www.perb.ca) under the context of it being from an actual customer's experience.
A shill could look something like this. "Hi, my name's Bob and I'm a long time lurker first time poster. Despite previous negative reviews I saw Brandie and she fucked me rotten, I've never had such a good experience. I think everyone should see her and spend their hard earned money."

Fake participants in the street gambling card game, three-card monte. They are decoys who "play" and "win" to entice novices into playing and loosing their money, but they are actually in on the scam with the dealer.
One or two shills will usually be the first to enter a game of three-card monte.

In conspiracy terms: A Shill is a person who is pretending to agree with a conspiracy and intentionally circulates false information or acts totally insane in an effort to discredit said conspiracy. Shills are often thought to be hired by the government but don't necessarily have to be.
The media loves Shills because its easy to Straw man their false arguments and link their crazy unproven claims to ALL believers of said Conspiracy.

A person whose integrity is based only within the context of a single transaction.
The shill sold me a line about his brand of mullet conditioner, but his pitch had the sound of an ulterior motive. It turned out that he had been recruiting for the Mullet Party, and the conditioner was just a bottle of liquid dish soap.

A word used by conspiracy theorists when they are losing an argument. The word originally referred to an accomplice of a travelling salesman selling quack remedies or similar items of dubious value. The conspiracy theorist calls their opponent a "shill" in an attempt to discredit them by implying that they are paid agents working for the government, the Bilderbergers, reptilian overlords, the Rotshschilds etc, because of course only such people could possibly disagree with them.
See those trails behind that plane? They're not disappearing within seconds, therefore they must be chemtrails. The government are trying to poison us all, wake up sheeple!!

- Ummm, no, persistent contrails are the result of certain atmospheric conditions at certain altitudes, very similar to cirrus clouds. And if the government was trying to poison the population in this way, it would be a very inefficient one and also a very indiscriminate one which would kill the elite as well as the general population. Plus global population has grown from 3.6 million in the 1970s to over 7 billion now - so if they're trying to reduce the world population, they're going about it in a strange way!

^^Shill!!! Disinformation agent!!!
