I was going to put an ad on a radio program about amazon vs. Amazon, & a DJ wrote to me that he "wanted the negativity removed from what I said" and that "Otherwise, people will just think we're being mean". Awwww!, babies..
He also suggested we find someone who would help us write a blog about this. Patronizing twit, he.. I replied that we have already been blogging this all over the Internet & I have blogged for a number of years.
I replied, "You are either part of the solution or part of the problem. There is no way to "remove the negativity" from the situation short of Amazon (a) changes its policies regarding us Sellers to reflect considerably more intelligent thought & fairness than they currently do; (b) apologizes publicly in a well-publicized manner to Indian Maid Products Inc, the Church it supports, ...

I call this aspect of myself The LaBrea Tar Pits Effect, because if you have some sticky dirty, naaasty secret to stay a secret, you don't even want me to walk by; because that secret will bubble up & be exposed to the world. Like Amazon's business model.
I spoke with an Inspector in the FL prison system yesterday and learned: (1) "Mr." D who supposedly ordered those 6 zappers from us May 12 of this year is in Suwannee Correctional Institution in FL, & has been since January of 2009, with a release date of December 2017 - provided he behaves himself. He has a string of convictions for Aggravated Battery with Intent to do Harm - a short step from being charged with attempted murder. "Mr." D has "an anger-management problem", I'm sure we all agree.
(2) "Mr." D's mother is also currently incarcerated in the prison system. Read More
Think about it - Amazon says it has a policy to never take the Sellers word for anything - or the USPS' word, including for Delivery Confirmation, which is electronically scanned by an employee of a federal agency - but it "always" sides with the Buyers, and sees them as "always truthful". Therefore, Amazon sees itself as a Pimp, and the Sellers as hookers, and the Buyers as johns. That's bullying. That's shameful. And it's a huge error on Amazon's part, because Sellers also are Buyers.
How can Amazon take the view that when we Sell we are 'always' liars, but when we Buy, we are 'always' truthful? Not possible! Not logical!
There's ample proof that Amazon is aiding the Buyer in this to commit mail fraud. Amazon says we are lying; but we have public record data to back up our position.... Read More
Amazon added $40 to the negative balance of our Seller account yesterday. I found it last night just before having to shut down for the night. Not yet sure what it's for, but they also downgraded our Seller rating from "Good" to "Fair" for "excessive Pre-Fulfillment Cancellations, & when we tried to reply to Buyers, we got a message that that part of Amazon's site is not currently working; that there's a problem, and Amazon is working on it. There sure is a problem &Amazon caused it. Continues to cause it. (No idea why that asterisk is there, but it won't go away.) And we just keep shovelling data to the USPS Inspectors because Amazon definitely has aided fraud, & we now have more than ample proof of it. We're not publishing it yet so we don't compromise the investigation. The bigger they are, the harder they fall, we've heard.. Have a great day!*
The latest salvo from the idiots in "Seller Help" at Amazon is that because we don't get a signature for proof of delivery, we can't prove the package was delivered - despite the fact that we have proof of delivery from the Delivery Confirmation #.
Remember, Amazon emailed us that it is their policy to never take the Sellers word for anything - or the USPS; therefore, why would they not take the position that the Signature was forged, as well? This bit of B.S. is 10-0ing; it is a case of "always tails we win, heads you lose". I'm sure glad we're not as stupid as they believe we are!
When they emailed the above bit of idiocy, I replied, 'If we Sellers required signatures for proof of delivery, no one would afford our products, and fewer could afford them. The USPS is an agency of the federal government. ... Read More
My tiny company started selling on Amazon last year. Our sales haven't been huge, but we've survived. May 12 of this year, a customer in Deland, FL ordered 6 zappers from us. True to form, we shipped them the next shipping day (May 14, 2012) & he had them in 2 days, according to the USPS Delivery Confirmation Number we always gets so we can track shuipments.The USPS showed the package was delivered on May 16, 2012 @ 2:55 p.m.
We pride ourselves on top quality & fast shipping. We even include a little thank you gift with each order!
Imagine our horrified surprise when he emailed us July 24, 2012 (2-1/2 months later) asking where his order was! We replied immediately with the tracking number & information that came up when we clicked it.. Told him to click it, copy it, then contact his local PO, especially the carrier, who... Read More
