Do you use Amazon.com for purchases? You should be aware that Amazon also connects to third party sellers. Most are legitimate sellers, but scammers lurk in the marketplace. These scammers will try to get you to make purchases outside the normal Amazon.com process.
How to protect yourself:
– Only pay for items you are considering through Amazon.com on the Amazon.com website.
– Read reviews. If a seller has tried to scam someone, chances are good its reviews will reflect that.
– If you run into trouble with a third party seller on Amazon.com, make use of the Amazon A-to-Z Guarantee, which guarantees purchases from third party sellers when payment is made on the Amazon.com website.
Happy, safe shopping!!
