The other day, an incident was reported in the news.
Amazon removed a Chinese product called Aukey, essentially suspending its account.
Aukey is said to have annual sales of over 10 billion yen on Amazon, and is a store that sells a wide variety of peripherals such as chargers and USB cables, following in the footsteps of Anker, and selling some of the most popular products on Amazon.
According to an interview with Aukey by the Chinese media, “It happened so suddenly that we are investigating the cause.
However, the cause is clear. It is the discovery of unauthorized reviews. SaftyDetectives, a security firm, reported on the 6th that 7G of fraudulent review data was found to have been leaked.
It seems that the email addresses and PayPal accounts of 200,000 people who had been doing fraudulent reviews on Amazon have been revealed. Amazon found out who was buying what products and who was receiving the cash via PayPal.
Amazon is the world’s No. 1 e-commerce site, operating in 19 countries: the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Canada, Japan, China, Italy, Spain, Brazil, India, Mexico, Australia, the Netherlands, Turkey, the United Arab Emirates, Singapore, Saudi Arabia, and Sweden. On April 29, Amazon.com, the world’s largest e-commerce site, was launched in the United States.
On April 29, Amazon.com in the U.S. announced its financial results for the first quarter (January to March). It was reported that sales exceeded 100 billion dollars and net income reached a record high, with a significant increase in both sales and profits, due in part to the growing demand for Corona Damages.
Whenever I buy something on Amazon, I always look at the reviews of the product. No matter how cheap the product is, if the reviews are bad, I won’t buy it. This fake review has been a problem for a long time, and I’ve heard that there are tools to check whether a review is real or fake.
Aukey’s annual sales of 10 billion yen have dropped to zero on Amazon, and I’m sure Aukey is feeling a bolt from the blue.
It’s quite a feat for Amazon to mercilessly cut off a customer like Aukey.
But the Aukey incident has made it clear that Amazon and PayPal have been exchanging information.
I think that personal information is probably being stored in a database.
I am a frequent shopper on Amazon, and I am amazed at Amazon’s resolute attitude.
I also subscribe to Amazon Prime, which costs 500 yen a month. It’s a great deal with lots of music and movies.
Amazon’s response to Aukey may seem like a show of force, but I admire their sense of justice.
