(I was formerly LisaM. I've changed my profile as someone new is Lisa M and it was confusing people.)
This isn't Kindle related, but wanted to get a feel for others' experiences and opinions.
This morning I went through and left feedback for about 10 Christmas purchases. 8/10 were positive. Within 5 minutes, one seller had called me on my home phone. He offered to take the item back and refund my money and he was polite, so I removed the feedback.
A few hours later I got an email from the other seller demanding that I remove the feedback. I declined. They had advertised a book as NEW and it was badly worn and clearly used. It was for a child's gift exchange and I couldn't even use it. At only $5 I didn't bother to return it. A few minutes after that I got this:
Hi My associate informed me of the DAMAGING UNWARRANTED FEEDBACK you left and I would greatly appreciate your removing it immediately. we are extremely conscientious honest sellers In the Spirit of the 9 year old girl killed in Tucson who envisioned a better world I thank you in advance for removing this feedback.
I'm 50 years old and I've been around the block a few times, but to use the death of a child to further their business shocked me. Low life scum!
Is Amazon providing our phone numbers to these sellers? Some of them seem unhinged and I'm done with the Marketplace for this reason. I've reported it to Amazon, and told them if they contacted me again that I'd update the feedback to include the harassment. I hope this will be the end of it.
