Fake/Hijacked Amazon Accounts

Is it just me being dumb, or is there NO way to report this, I have been looking for over an hour, after coming across another hijacked seller account "selling" discounted computer and AV products with an "email me @" scam.

i did ask them that and all they said was you wouldnt be covered by the amazon guarantee....so little interest surprisingly

Yes, this is a problem with electricals I have found. One company I emailed and they said that they'd been hacked and had reported it to Amazon.

not just electricals but Keter sheds as well

Amazon chat according to similar thread last week. See post 15: hotukdeals.com/tag/ask…358

Normally if it looks to be good to be true then you know what you are letting yourself in for

I think Amazon have the buisness ethics of China.
I.E. as long as we make money from it not much else matters.

I know it is too good to be true, but it masks the GENUINE sellers.

I am getting really hacked off; I'm looking for a new monitor for myself ,and SWMBO wants a new TV in the bedroom, and both categories are awash with scammer crap.

It has gotten so bad, I am going to close my own seller account in the new year. 1st of January a closing down sale will go up and last orders taken on the 31st of Jan.

After that we will go back to events and special markets, where the silk scarves sell well, and people can look and feel the product; and not worry they will be sent a bit of cheap polyester

They ask you to contact them first for payment away from amazon if you buy via amazon payment it will be refunded asap and no contact will be made.

I know how it works. What I am saying is, there are so many at the moment, it is difficult to find what you want from a genuine seller.

Well, it seems there is one way. I left a "review" stating the seller appeared to be fake/hijacked.

I got an email saying it couldnt be posted, but the product also got taken down within minutes, as it seems, have all the other fake products on the sellers account.

Might be a coincidence, so I will try the same next time I come across a fake.

You still dont get it; if you are searching by price, the fakes swamp the real products, how do I know which products are displaying at a real price without clicking through?? It is not as if I am looking for one specific model, I wanted to look at a range of products in my price range.

If I'd given our seller name, or linked, that would be wrong; so please note that I have done neither.

I never ever buy off Amazon unless it's sold by Amazon or despatched by Amazon. Being a Prime customer helps.

Amazon are sinking fast, too many scams, poor customer service, I trust eBay more.
