I do not shop amazon often, as I just dont shop anywhere often. But, I have noticed this, don't know if this is happening to others; 3 times in the last 5 months I have ordered items from someone scamming. So, no item ever sent. The first time was the hardest as it was for a textbook and my daughter was counting on it for school, and by the time we realized it wasnt going to show, the other used ones were bought out. So, had to spend more money for a more expensive than average used text, and then priority shipping.
I do not have prime as I dont order enough.
All 3 times, Amazon did refund our money, but I wonder if this is getting worse as I had never had it happen at all until last August.
I also wonder if these scammers actually get money out of the deal, I had thought that Amazon didnt pay until order received, but maybe that is not so.
