I joined Amazon to begin selling a few items. Within just a few days I had several sales. I followed the guidelines of Amazon and shipped the products out the same day. As a condition of joining they hold the funds for the first 14 days until account is fully setup. After that funds can be transfered to sellers bank account on a daily basis.

Before I reached the 14th day, I get a notice from alliance saying they have blocked my account and cancelled all listings and will be holding all funds for at least 90 days. They also said that if I could provide proof of shipping the funds would be released sooner.

The reason they closed my account was they claim to have evidence that my new account is linkd to another closed account owned by someone else. They also say they will not release any information on how they linked these accounts together or anything at all.

I wrote to verify about sending proof of shipping and to ask where I send such proof. The reply I got was it doesn't matter if I have shipping proof or not they will not release any funds until sometime in March if even then.

Amazon is being run by criminals who will process a credit card payment from a buyer and instead of sending that payment to the person who sold the product, they keep the money for themselves.

They are very quick to deduct their HIGH commission fees but that is not good enough so they just take the whole payment.

I see from other reports filed right here at ripoffreport.com that Amazon has been doing this type of thing to thousands of people with funds totalling into the millions. Someone needs to STOP them and shut the whole website down before they steal any more money from inoccent people.
