I received an email from the seller "any_book" today. The email simply said my order was canceled. No reason was given. The order was gone from my orders page. Like it never happened. Total and complete waste of my time. I wasn't charged, but I was very annoyed. The book was a gift for my daughter.

Anybody else have dealing with this?

here's the email:

Looks like the seller decided to name is store "any book". Have you contacted the seller or Amazon about this? Look up your order in your account on amazon and click the link to contact the seller.
Most likely the seller had only one copy of the book, and sold it before your order came in. That can happen if somene's selling in different places, like if he has a physical store, someone could walk in off the street and buy the book and it takes a while for the seller to take it off the website.

An oh yea, probably not a good idea for you to put your order number up there for everyone in the world to see. I'm just sayin'.

Does anyone have this sellers address? I have an item I need to return.

Gary says:
Yes I would also like this sellers address. any_book are disrespectful crooks. And I am considering bringing legal action against them. Amazon customer service is protecting their anonymity effectively putting Amazon at risk for being a codefendant in the law suit.

I don't know who this person is : but no one should ever buy anything from this thief. The prices he sets for his/her books are a travesty . I'm sorry , but you would be very foolish to buy anything from this person. I wish Amazon would take him off their website. He's giving Amazon a bad name as well as all book people. Disgusting.

I recently ordered two books. Neither arrived and one only was refunded. Who are any_book-Amazon? I am very unhappy with this outcome.

I strongly encourage you to call Amazon customer service and insist on speaking with a SUPERVISOR to get this information. Any info you can share with us about any_book contact info will be helpful as I will probably initiate legal proceedings against any-book once I locate them. There may also be basis for a class action law suit.

Finally, Amazon.com's filings with the Security and Exchange Commission are public information and can be viewed and/or obtained here
http://www.sec.gov/cgi-bin/browse-edgar?action=getcompany&CIK=0001018724&owner=exclude&count=40

Amazons most recent 10-Q filing with the Security and Exchange Commission lists the address of their Principal Executive Offices as
410 Terry Avenue North, Seattle, WA 98109-5210 and phone as (206) 266-1000

NOTE THAT the most recent 10-Q filing with the SEC also states that

"We Could Be Liable for Fraudulent or Unlawful Activities of Sellers
The law relating to the liability of providers of online payment services is currently unsettled. In addition, governmental agencies could require changes in the way this business is conducted. Under our seller programs, we may be unable to prevent sellers from collecting payments, fraudulently or otherwise, when buyers never receive the products they ordered or when the products received are materially different from the sellers' descriptions. Under our A2Z Guarantee, we reimburse buyers for payments up to certain limits in these situations, and as our marketplace seller sales grow, the cost of this program will increase and could negatively affect our operating results. We also may be unable to prevent sellers on our sites or through other seller sites from selling unlawful goods, from selling goods in an unlawful manner, or violating the proprietary rights of others, and could face civil or criminal liability for unlawful activities by our sellers. "

I know of these guys, they "hijacked" a book of ours and hiked the price from 34.15$ to 235$ while eliminating our previous listing all together.
Amazo could not care less and seem to be unpreturbed by this.
I believe these are Russian conmen out to grab unsuspecting customeres. beware!

On January 8 I ordered a book for my college son from any_book. I paid for expedited shipping so it would arrive within 2-6 days. My Amazon account showed any_book mailed the book on January 9. When it had not arrived on Jan. 19, I began my email correspendence with any_book. To make a long story short, any_book said the book had been in the mail for some time and asked me to wait another week. The book had not arrived yesterday so I made a claim with Amazon, and Amazon reimbursed me for the book. Thank you Amazon! Meanwhile, the book finally arrived today, and the tracking number shows it was actually mailed yesterday, 1/25. Bottom line: any_book is a dishonest company, a bottom-feeder. Do not believe the good ratings you see. Take your business elsewhere.

Do NOT believe the good ratings indeed! Anybook screwed me and then when they got a bad rating from me they harrassed me repeatedly to change my rating AND they repeatedly sent me spam emails. Moral of the story? Anonymous sellers are chosing amazon for a reason. They are dishonest thieves and amazon protects them.

Maskull says:
Yes...any_books are the biggest crooks I've encountered in the Internet. Why Amazon allows these people to sell on their website is way beyond me. I love Amazon..but this is a blemish on their part. I've been trying to contact any_books for a year, just to get some justification for their criminalistic pricing. They have never responded, of course. They are too cowardly to respond , plus they can't possibly justify their methods. I would like to get a petition going or something to persuade Amazon to release these crooks from their site. If you aren't aware what they do, just type in a title of a book. Then look at all the copies of that book that are available. You will notice that they price their books at insanely, outrageous prices. They are trying to rip customers off. A new copy of a book will be selling for say $5 and they will price a used copy at say $50. They seem to have a copy of almost every book there is. I can't imagine they sell a single book but apparently some foolish people actually buy from them. I'm all for selling books and buyers should know what they're purchasing, but what these sellers are doing is completely unethical, unjustifiable, and borderline criminal. PLEASE AMAZON, REMOVE ANY_BOOK FROM YOUR OTHERWISE FINE WEBSITE !

Gary says:
As I have already indicated, Amazon's SEC filing clearly indicates that Amazon is aware of their legal liability for seller's misconduct.

I think we should start a new discussion group in another venue (e.g. a yahoo group). And perhaps the solution is to start a class action law suit against Amazon.

I live in Florida, Gary, and supposedly any_book is based out of Florida. I would pay them a visit if they actually are located in Florida and if I knew the address. Why do you think Amazon allows them to sell on their website? I really would like to know. Do whatever you can to expose these criminals..I'm behind you 100%, as apparently many others are as well.

Thanks Colleen

For starters, lets do some research here: http://sunbiz.org/search.html

OK Colleen lets go.

Anyone interested in taking serious action against Any_Book/Amazon can bring their complaint to the new forum I just created at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/AnyBook_Customers_ClassActionLawSuit

Maskull says:
I'm at work now , Gary...but I will I will list my complaint in your forum when I get a chance later. Definitely.

In reply to an earlier post on Feb 14, 2012 7:39:41 PM PST
I agree with your complains.
I paid more than US$ 330 for a new book and they sent me a used one.
They are not serious.
I want this sallers adress.
Amazon can not protect them.
Shame on them all.

I don't know how to explain this, but here goes.
THIS IS NOT A GUY! IT IS A COMPANY.
If you do some looking..... They have about 8,000,000 items listed on Amazon.
This is a large scale book seller that also puts their books on Amazon.
Professional merchants can automate this for about $50 a month. They High ball the prices because this is just extra income for no extra work to them.

As far as bringing a law suit, they both have a bunch of lawyers just waiting for that.

The fact that they have lawyers is fine. So Russell HOW do you know they have lawyers? Who are these "guys"? I need names and state of LLC or corporate registration in order to file law suit. Who are these SOBs and what is there legal address?

This certainly is a fishy seller! I placed an order for a book of theirs 3 days ago, and today I've received a cancellation of the order without any sort of explanation. Plus, the book appears again for sale at Amazon for the same price and with the same seller. As you can't leave any feedback, is there any way to inform Amazon about what looks like very shady dealing?
