It is too easy for criminals to commit crimes on the internet. As far as blame is concerned, this is not a matter of blame, but instead a matter of accountability. If you are a large company and you are made aware that fraud is occurring with one of your products, you should respond to it in a timely fashion to protect your customers. Instead, I have experienced the opposite. However, I will remain calm and logical until my voice is heard and a sensible resolution is made.
You are blaming Amazon because they can't do anything about a gift card which is essentially like cash. This is not a credit card nor do they offer any type of protection when using it.
If you mailed those guys cash instead of a gift card would you go and blame the bank for not protecting you? This is the reason why you shop online with credit cards because they do offer protection. Although I would never have thought people needed to be told not to shop with gift cards that don't even belong to the store you are buying from.
To say you won't shop at Amazon because of this is, is kind of ironic because if you would have shopped at Amazon from the start and you wouldn't be in this situation.Edited by eric3316 - 12/17/13 at 3:25pm
