The cc machine was made by a company in China,they found more such cases with other local supermarkets in UK and Holland.
Never find out who and when the chip was placed.
Never happened, you've simple posted another of your rubbishy made up tales.

so the new bank account is unknown because AMZ won't give up the information (w/o warrant i guess)

so there is no way to know if the acct is in the usa or not.

as for the email notification it was marked as read INSIDE amazon so it went un-noticed

as for the email that was in replymanager it was filtered into a folder that no1 reads (over 20 reps reading emails)

i don't believe there was 2-step auth because you have multiple reps logging in daily to refund/manage the acct

so yea - it sux

i have 2 step auth on all my accts and manually review messages even if there is no notification every once it a while but after this i've been checking it every week

That's crazy, man. With this kind of money on the line I hope your friend has contacted some sort of authorities. Maybe the FBI's internet crimes unit? I know you said they won't do much.. but there's got to be something that can be done.

I also hope your buddy has closed out the old bank account previously attached to the AZ account since it's obviously been compromised.

I can understand AZ not allowing you to see the new bank info. You're required to know the account number, because if not anyone who gets access to an AZ account would be able to change the deposit bank account easily. Your buddy's problem is that his entire operation has been compromised. Somebody would have had to gain access to their online banking to get the account number before changing the AZ deposit account, right? They need to carefully reevaluate they way they're running everything from the ground up.

.-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Is that so?
to change the AMZN deposit bank account number,you must know the current bank account number?
where does the hacker get the bank account number?
3 possbilities-
some insider gave them the account number.
some one working at the bank
or if he is using his cell phone to check his bank account,his phone security has been compromised.
I dont know if this has been fixed,last year quite a few cell phone users who access their bank account with the phone reported seeing debit transactions they dont recognise and it is from some malware they downloaded to their phone which follow them when they log into different accounts .
but this is not difficult to resolve,they report to their bank and the bank would just contact the other bank and find the account owner,it is some Chinese company and the description of the debit transaction usually makes one believe that it is a Paypal or Ebay purchase.

or a 4th possibility, which I think is more likely than any of those : The account owner had a keylogger remotely installed on one of their computers, revealing their online banking login, Amazon login, and every other login credentials to the hacker who jacked this account.

Many of these e commerce companies,they may gross over a million sales,but they are just run by a solo operator or 2 partners with some helpers pay by the hour,under the table,contractors whom they issue 1099,with no SS deduction,no pension,no health insurance.
there is no accounting or treasury dept,no auditor either,the owner is the treasurer,he is also the buyer,the seller,and in some cases,the accountant.
It is not too difficult to read what is on his desk,could be a vendor invoice,a bank statement.a cancelled check,a deposit slip ,phone numbers,and ovehear his phone conversation.

possible,but why just one computer,if he has 6 workers,he must have at least 6 computers,plus his own and his partner.
Security is much better with a PC than a cell phone.

Because the bosses terminal is going to be the one with banking and business background info. The person running the show is always the one targeted by hackers because they are usually the one with the most valuable info stored on their computer.

I've never thought so. Hackers have only recently started targeting people's phones.

Have you guys also read about a BTC wallet that was hacked recently?
But it doesn't seem like it's everyone, just 1 person.

He claimed it's due to the 2FA

yes,employees or any payee can see the routing number and account number,name on the check.
but it does not mean they can hack into your AMZN account and change the bank account information.
It is better to open a bank account just for ecommerce and transfer the fund weekly,daily to another bank account.
Big company has many bank accounts,for payroll,for vendors,for receivable and for paying dividend

some are not checks,they are drafts which would be presented to the treasuer to be approved,like paying your vendors.

I just logged into my AMZN seller account and see how I can change my bank account which receives AMZN deposit.
It shows just the last 4 digits of my bank account,when I tried to replace it with a new bank account,it ask me to enter the full account number,not just the 4 digits.
But this should be too difficult,like you said anyone who has seen a cancelled check, would see the full account number.
so if someone changes your bank account,and you did not receive AMZN email saying it has been changed,you wont know until you wonder why AMZN is not depositing your sales proceeds to your bank account.

AMZ does email you so you have to be sure to not filter that email into a spam folder

ANYONE who has a staff of 6 and do million dollars worth of business,I find it odd that AMZN email would end up in the spam folder.
we get too many emails,I can see someone deleting it thinking it is another BS email!
I have multiple Ebay seller accounts,everynow and then I log in and find a $5 coupon from Ebay.

I dont know if they have found the scammer and prosecute them,there are folks who have fancy printers which can print checks and sell them.
Also in some countries,need I mention the letter N as in a country in Africa,they will say they want to wire payment into your bank account and you give them your name and address and bank rouiting number and account number,they go to a print shop and print some checks and start shopping.
