10:30 PM KatrinaMM Internet
I ordered an obscure hard to find movie from KatrinaMM at several weeks ago.  I received a message saying that the package had been mailed during the first week of November.  KatrinaMM did not send a tracking number. We all know that the U.S.P.S. borders on incompetence.  I sent KatrinaMM a message requesting the tracking number so that I could find out what the postal service did with it.  She did not respond.  I waited a week and sent her another message requesting the tracking number.  She did not respond.  Failure to respond after two messages leads to believe that the package was never mailed at all.  I suppose she probably thinks that nobody would go to all this trouble over $5.I try to order goods from those that have had a relatively small number of orders.  It gives those sellers a better chance of attracting more customers.  Most sellers value that.

More than 3 months ago I purchased a 1 year subscription to THE NATION magazine.  I have not gotten a single issue yet and it was supposed to start about a month ago, according to Amazon.  I have made numerous calls and emails to both and the company that handles their subscriptions, Magazine Express, and it is supposidly being investigated, but after more than 3 months, still no magazine.  This is the first and ladt time I ever order a magazine subscription from  I have done lots of business with for merchandise and never had a problem, but apparently when it comes to magazine subscriptions, stay away!  By the way, I also contact THE NATION directly and they have no record of a subscription purchased on my behalf.

01:00 PM Amazon Suspension? Internet
I have been a Pro Merchant for over 2 years. Weekly volume of almost 20K. Quit my job to do this. Suddenly I am suspended for selling copied media. All my product is bought from distributors and manufacturers. Nothing is ever copied or illegal. My feedback was 99% positive. I provided great prices, great product and quick shipping. Now I am suspended, they are holding my 3K for 90 days and all I get a automated person to talk to, no explanation of what product they considered copied. No communication in response to my great performance on Amazon. How is this allowed.

08:51 AM Shipping? NOT!! Internet
Beware... makes no distinction between SHIPPING and MAILING ... I have a P.O. Box because my house is on a major 4 lane highway ... not to mention a major intersection. My neighbors mailbox has been mowed down 10 times in 8 years and only once did the drivers insurance company (progressive) bother to locate or reimburse her for the box and post. I simply did not replace mine the first time it got mowed down. As a result ... you cannot MAIL to my home address and obviously you cannot SHIP to my PO Box. MAILING and SHIPPING are NOT the same thing. The distinction is clear. You cannot SHIP to a mailbox or PO Box. It would be easy for to clarify this but they won't. They make the point of telling you on the shipping (as they call it) page that you can't choose the method. Fine place to state that their version of shipping includes MAILING, but they don't. There is no way for you to know whether they are SHIPPING or MAILING, therefor, you have no way of knowing what address to provide. Congratulations on a world record time at pissing off ... not to mention losing a customer. Kj villa rica, GeorgiaU.S.A.

03:46 PM FRAUD, Internet
This is the same scam running by Amazon for years. They take in un-suspecting sellers and let them sell on Amazon. Once the seller has some good money over $1000 they put the account for review at 15, 30 days intervals. After first 15 day review they remove the restriction and once 30 day come they again suspend you at time of payment to your bank. They keep the money in reserve for 90 days with no interest and finally release your money and permanently ban you for life. Amazon collect interest for millions of dollars in it reserve and repeat the process for new un-suspecting suckers. It is so sad Amazon is allowed to carry out this scam for years and nobody filed a lawsuit against Amazon. Amazon also require you to fill the orders you receive during the initial review process. Dont do this. Its a trap. Amazon only freeze your account and hold all money in reserve for 90 days.Their A-Z claim is another scam. If any buyer claim non-receipt of item Amazon require signature confirmation as proof of delivery and even wont accept delivery confirmation or you will loose the claim and Amazon will remove the money from your account. Same with item not as described claims. They just refund buyer without any investigation. Same rule apply for any site using checkout by Amazon. So if you are a seller dont accept this payment method or you will loose the item plus money as A-Z claim terms state that buyer dont have to return the items.

06:05 AM amazon is a big s**t! Seattle, Washington
I have placed an order with amazon. I have received some gift cards. When I placed order, amazon asked me to change my password. Once done, I was asked to provide my credit card deatils and was asked to contact with bank. I was surprised as there was no bank involvd and their customer service is just used to sending pre-written replies. Afetr several contacts, I was told that one of the gift card I used has a problem and they have blocked all of my gift cards. Despite several tries, they have not replied even a single email. I am out of $300 due to this. I have earlier listened that they are in the business of selling gift cards and later deny purchases with these gift cards, however I never believed this as they are a big company and how a big business can do this. However I was wrong and understnad people are not wrong about them. They steal people money this way and are able to sell other products at a lower price just due to this. A BIG S**T COMPANY!

Was thinking about buying a book but waited until Dec. 17 because many companies were offering free shipping that day only. On Dec. 17th, I received an e=mail from telling me that if I bought from them today, I would get free shipping. When I got to the end of the order, they tell me that I didn't qualify for free shipping and they would charge me 3.00 for shipping.

10:19 AM frozen account no explanation, Internet
I opened a new account within the last 30 days when my husband purchased me a Kindle Fire for my birthday.  I made multiple purchases on said account for accessories for the Kindle Fire. Last night I purchased a stylus and a usb cord for my Kindle Fire.  I did not change the credit card or address that was on file, I used all of the exact same information that was used on all of my previous purchases. I attempted to log into my account this morning and was prompted with an error saying my password was incorrect.  I reset my password with them, and was met with the same error. I called customer service, and was told that my account was frozen, but they could not tell me why, and that an account specialist would contact me within 24-48 hours by email regarding the freeze.   I inquired as to why I had not been informed by email or telephone that my account had been frozen, and the representative said that it should send out sometime later today. My issues are: 1.  I was not informed my account had been frozen.  2.  I cannot speak with a representative that actually knows anything about my account, and why it is frozen.  3.  It was hinted towards that my address on file was fraudulent for the order I placed last night, even though it is the exact same address I have used for multiple purchases in the last 3 days. I even spoke with a supervisor in customer support, and she could not tell me why my account was frozen, or how to get a hold of the department that froze my account, that is the only department that can give me an explanation on anything.  I was told this department does not have telephones.

My account is under review because they said I am operating two accounts, but my daughter has one and I have one. No one is leaving feedback and I have more orders now,  I am told I must close the listings and they are withholding my funds pending the review. I have over $500 and have sent all items and don't have any other info then the USPS tracking. What can be done to get the money from them? Are they allowed to keep the money when items have been sent. The items are also non returnable per their policy. If anyone wants to go into class action lawsuit against Amazon, contact me. I will never sell on Amazon again but want my money, it's ridiculous and now I look and see this is common practice of Amazon???!

12:15 PM Non-Existent Customer Service Seattle, Washington
This review is about Amazon's policy of allowing sellers to ignore customer emails and do nothing about it. I was told by an Amazon CSR that there is a policy that sellers must follow regarding responding to customer inquiries, however, they do not give seller contact info to buyers, nor will they (Amazon)contact the non-responsive sellers directly. I sent two emails, one on 6/06/12 and one on 6/10/12, to Blue Light Bargains, which is a seller on Amazon, and have not received any answer to this date (6/27/12). I find Amazon's policies regarding their sellers lack of responses to buyer emails both negligent and ignorant. I received an answer from the last Amazon CSR I emailed that the problem was being addressed by another department (Amazon's Technical Team) and I would hear a response from them in two days--that was on 6/20/12 and still no answer after seven days. If this is any example of Amazon's approach to customer service, then I urge anyone who buys on Amazon to think twice about making a purchase there. Amazon simply does not care about it's customers--I guess that's what happens when a company gets as big as they are.

The extra hundred dollars ($100) is for bounced check fees. I did not use a checking account. Attached please find five (5) PAID RECEIPTS FOR ALL SIX PURCAHSES! This is proof that I paid in full. It is your job and duty to charge me and collect all monies before sending me my items. All I did is go to your sight to buy things. This is something I will never do again. You have no right to treat me like I stole something from you. I followed all your procedures. In the adult world when you make a mistake you pay for it, not the customer who is still, by the way always right. There are plenty of other places to shop online that don't harass people and try to cheat them out of another 44%. This was the single worst shopping experience of my life. Going forward, you should be less sloppy in the way you conduct your day-to-day business. It is impossible to find your phone number or your address on your site. Are you afraid of how many complaints you would get? I had to call the 800 directory for your customer service phone number. Why should I have to go to to find your phone number and address?

I purchased a product from in early December as a Christmas gift. When I received the item, I immediately realized I had made a mistake. So, I carefully followed Amazon's return policy to make sure I would be eligible for a refund. Knowing that I was at fault for ordering the wrong item, I knew I would have to forfeit the shipping cost. I watched in my account to see that they had received the item and issue my refund. According to my account a refund was issued on December 20, 2005. I have e-mailed 4 times, spoken with them on the phone. Nothing! They tell me they will issue a refund, but that it won't show up for 5 to 7 days. That's just their way of saying please don't call and complain again for the next 5 to 7 days! How do you get to this company? I expect to experience occasional issues like this shopping on Ebay or other online auctions, but I never would have expected this from a company as big as Amazon.

A week later I received an email saying the money has been sent back on the 8th. Keep in mind thats the same day I placed the order and the money was not taken out of my account until the 10th. I again emailed them and they wanted to see a copy of my bank statement, ok, I faxed it to them. Today 1/12/2008 I received another email saying the money had been returned on the 8th. and that they has closed the claim. Well I have not received a dime of my money back and have no way to get it.

10:24 PM INCORRECT PRICES MY @SS! Seattle Internet
On May 22, 2007 I placed several orders with during their Spring Clearance Event at which time they advertised prices at 70%+. During the time of the sale I placed 10 orders at the advertised prices. All of which i have recieved email confirmations for. During the toy sale I did notice that they stopped the sale completely for about 2 hours but put it back on exactly the way it was at first. Today when i went to to check the status of my orders i noticed that 2 orders had disappeared completely and the other 8 orders had been modified quite a bit. Not only were items missing from my orders but being that the totals of my orders no longer added up to the required $25 to be eligible for free super saver shipping, I was also being charged shipping fees which I never agreed to! I then proceeded to check my email for some kind of explanation for these changes and found there was nothing there! I then called customer service to bring to attention the changes in my orders. Alex, the representative I spoke to, then informed me that there had been a pricing error. I did ask for a refund in shipping being that I wasn't aware of the error when the orders were placed. The website was offering 70%+ sales how am I to distinguish the real sales for the mistaken sales? Also, on a few message boards I go to I have noticed quite a few people posting their shipping confirmations for items that had been removed from my order! How can they pick and chose who the sale applies to and who it does not? I have also noticed that most of the people posting shipping confirmations are PRIME members. Are they playing favorites because these people are members of their site? I don't see anywhere on the site stating that I must be a member to recieve the prices advertised. I think it highly unfair that they are not honoring the prices for everyone. Below is a list of my order numbers. I also have email confirmations and printouts from message boards stating proof that they are recieving some of the items that I, as well as others, have had removed due to incorrect pricing. Order #: 002-3614251-9580024 Total for this Order: $31.32 Order #: 002-0191866-1060063 Total for this Order: $27.78 Order #: 002-8774385-9664054 Total for this Order: $26.40 Order #: 002-2494473-5886450 Total for this Order: $33.42 Order #: 002-5720122-6482424 Total for this Order: $25.62 Order #: 002-0637894-6028045 Total for this Order: $83.74 Order #: 002-9234643-0262450 Total for this Order: $104.36 Order #: 002-2522498-2532037 Total for this Order: $35.06 Order #: 002-8885251-0028060 Total for this Order: $32.75 Order #: 002-2643641-9969650 Total for this Order: $68.41 Thank you for the opportunity to express my concerns on this issue. If any documentation is needed please feel free to contact me and I will mail everything I have acquired so far. I would like them to honor ALL prices and ship the items to me as they are doing to their selected customers. I would just like to be treated fairly even though I am not a member of their site. I have confirmations for my orders and I expect to get EVERYTHING I have a confirmation for and at the prices I agreed to when I checked out. I have contacted customer service on this issue and have gotten nowhere as the reps know less than I do. I have also left a message just recently and have not recieved a call back as of yet. I do expect to be treated as other customers have been. I have shipping confirmations from other customers regarding items that were deleted from my orders due to incorrect pricing. How does it take so long to catch such errors? How in the world does such an error happen to so many items at once? I'm sorry but if this was just some ploy to boost your sales for this quarter that was pretty pathetic and I will be sure to never order from again. I have contacted the better business bureau on this matter and I will continue to contact anyone and everyone necessary to make sure I recieve my items for the prices in which i purchased them. I recieved confirmation emails and estimated shipping dates which to me would mean that agreed to fulfill my order and I expect NOTHING LESS! Thank you This is an actual complaint filed with BBB by myself earlier today. I have also tried to contact several times through phone and email and left several voicemails at the executive offices and the only response i got was that it is stated in their site that they reserve the right to correct incorrect prices! It does not say AFTER THE ORDER IS PLACED however. It also does not state ONLY FOR CERTAIN PEOPLE! This is a load of bull crap in my opinion. Many people are claiming bait and switch. Either way it's shady doings in my booK! Kristin carteret, New JerseyU.S.A. Click here to read other Rip Off Reports on

06:43 AM Amazon sells pirated/illegal software Seattle Washington
Amazon sells bootlegged, pirated software under the catagory of repair recovery discs. There are numerous sellers selling this software with Amazons blessing. I have tried to get Amazon to pull this illegal software but to no avail. The software involved are the Windows boot discs and/or freeware, GPL/GNU software. The boot discs are nothing more than copied Windows installation files put to a disc by sellers on Amazon. Amazon also sells software that is freely available on the internet at no cost. All these software titles are suppose to be against Amazon policy but they look the other way. Amazon knowinly does this as I have been trying to get them to stop for months.  Some of this software arrives with light-scribe labels produced in someones basement illegally all with Amazons blessings. I have all the documentation of the many times I have tried to have these software titles removed. Ultimate Boot CD-available as freeware GPL/GNU software sold when this software is free online.  All Windows boot discs-these are copied files from an installation disc illegally

I have a similar experience with a Subscribe and Save item, although the price did not increase by 10 times. I cancelled that subscription. I have one other item and the price has kept steady. However, I still think that is wrong to do this. They say the S&S price fluctuates depending on when it is ordered, but I haven't seen the price change at all for the item. In my opinion it is a bait and switch. There is no advantage to subscribing if the price goes up and costs more than if you got it through a local store or vendor.
