Nov 11, 2016 Attempting to get someone with real authority's attention at Amazon I wrote a product review of what I was trying to purchase through the Amazon website today and emailed to them. The response was that I had to rewrite it.  These Honda generators are great. During the 2.5 day power outage after hurricane Mathew passed us, my neighbor who has both the EU200i and the EU3000is (both over seven years old and running perfectly), loaned me the smaller one and it made an uncomfortable situation more than bearable by allowing us to run the refrigerator and lighting and electronics. It was also super quiet and sipped fuel. I loved the generator so much I put both models on my Amazon.com wish list and started to watch the pricing. On Nov 6 a "new seller" on the Amazon.com website was offering the larger one for sale at $1000 and change and wanted to be sent a text message prior to ordering. [continued below]....

..... The price was under the guise of a "closeout". This review isn't about the generators. It's about Amazon.com and how this company enables fraud to take place on an ongoing basis and is doing nothing to prevent it. Attached is one initial email the thieves sent me regarding payment. It all looked legitimate until the next morning when another email requesting further "insurance" funds revealed the truth. A call to Amazon and discussion with a Customer Service supervisor regarding the Amazon gift card payment redemption codes hinted at some hope of possibly freezing the payment but absolutely nothing came of it nor the emails to stop-spoofing @amazon.com I sent nor the conversation with someone, supposedly on their fraud prevention team, who suggested that I call my bank. Really! All during Nov 7 and 8 I kept checking in on the Amazon website and I saw the same criminal activity going with different seller names and that's just reviewing the same Honda generator offers. Even as I write this there is a fraudulent seller on the Amazon.com website New sellers asking for you to contact them regarding the specific product prior to placing an order. Does anyone think Amazon.com doesn't know this is going on? After reviewing some other blogs and sites apparently I'm not the first trusting in Amazon.com person to be sucked into this and I'm willing to bet the numbers are very high. Amazon.com facilitates and is a partner with these fraud artists and they lose nothing by doing it. Personally Amazon.com has lost my business and I will go out of my way to avoid them from now on. Buyers Please Beware.
