Sucking for Buyers Now Too

I needed to buy something, and no one had it. But it was listed on Amazon. I paid about $400 for the items. The seller was out of stock and canceled the order. Hey, I get it, it happens. Amazon however, put a hold on my credit card. Of course, they wont release those funds either. I went around in circles with them.

In my Chat Window, I had this to say:

Me: Thank you, for once again proving, that Amazon is completely worthless to me. As a seller, or a buyer, you suck. I hate Amazon more than words. Thanks for not being able to help at all. You DO realize I am out $400 until it feels like dropping off by itself right? As If I had $400 to just sit around, doing nothing. Not to mention the fact, that since the seller advertised a product he didn't have in stock, I STILL had to spend another $400 to buy from someone else. That is now $800 out of my pocket. How much credit do you think I actually have, anyway? Since the seller made a mistake, doesn't that mean the almighty Amazon should be shutting down his seller account, and freezing his assets for 3 months, for being a terrible person? After all, that's what your crappy company did to my seller account. I hate you, I hate you, I hate you. Please let your supervisor know what I think about that.

Evil Amazon's Slave: "We are really sorry for the inconvenience John, we really didn't expect that the seller will not have the inventory for the item. I will forward your comments to our seller department."

Me: I dont blame the seller. I blame AMAZON for not contacting my bank, at my my own request, and releasing the funds.

Evil Amazon's Slave: "You need to contact your bank."

Me: Now, you just further waste my time. They told me to contact you. I told them it was Amazon, and Amazon doesn't care. So, I am not going to waste any more, of either of our time. It's a Saturday night, and I have somewhere to be. But, I just want you to know that this has not been resolved, (not even any attempt made, as you could call the bank with me on the phone). Anyway, I have already posted it on my blog, frequented by people who have been run over by Amazon's Corporate Machine. It will be found on Google shortly. Have a nice day.

Amazon is holding 6 1/2 Thousand dollars my Money for over 120 days. From all the years I've been in business I’ve never bumped in to a huge thieve like this...time for a class A action and a big investigation.. I'm sure that there are more honest company's going through the same thing my company is going though right now ...my advice to Amazon sellers take of all your products close your Amazon account before it will be too late and they will hold on to your money cuz they make money by holding on to your money..Additional I hear from friends in business, that if you bring in anything from anywhere something that sales well, Amazon will be your competition in a 2 month period. First they will ask you proof for not stolen products, then they will open up account with that distributor under a different name (not Amazon)...I've a lot of proof. Please if you know anything let’s get together as a strong team and fight this legal thieves. I'm willing to help with what i can I'm ready to put in money in this case and I'm sure that all of us by just meeting up with the right legal team and the numerous people that Amazon did this to, with god’s help we will be able to get all our money back and plus the lawyer fees and a big lawsuit and save other honest company's

When a dealer fails to fulfill an order, the customer should contact the dealer (or Amazon) once, and if the problem is not corrected, it's a simple matter for the customer to contact the card-issuing bank and initiate a chargeback. "Seller Protection" from Amazon is meaningless when a credit or debit card has been used, because the best seller protection is the right of chargeback. You tell them ONCE, and then comes the chargeback if you don't get satisfaction.

Amazon is a fraud. The sooner people learn the better. Why do you think these crooks are in the worst states, they look for tax havens and states with easy to win legal systems. Amazon has to be one of the biggest frauds going the USA right now but the presidents a weak pussy and can't stand up to wall street.

Sorry to double post, but I am trying my hardest to get a hold of people just like you who have been victims of Amazon's practices. If you know anyone else who is having this problem, please tell them to contact me so that I can get as large a group of complainants as I can. Great blog! Keep telling your story!

I am currently gathering names and complaints from people who are currently (or have ever) been victims of Amazon's (or Paypal) fund holds. This is illegal in all but 2 states, and I want to gather as large a group as possible to make them pay for this unethical business practice. Best case scenario would be a class action lawsuit. At the very least they will be forced to pay fines and release your funds. Please email me at amazoncomplaints@gmail .com. I want to hear from you!

Amazon stealing my $$
Hi my name is Robert,I started selling on amazon as a startup . I just wanted to start a small piece of my American dream so to speak . But this sales giant crushed/stole and ruined my hopes.Amazon now froze me out.Now I am trying to find others that amazon is holding funds under the gise of " your account is on hold and your funds are in reserve " it has been 2 months since my last completed sale and confirmation of delivery. I call n call they tell me that seller support is email based only and they have no phones to contact them. I have sent countless emails and still no money n no response.
Please help me with this .
Sincerely,
Robert /robbtina2005@gmail.com
