Default Is amazon as full of scammers regarding apple products as ebay now?.

On ebay around 40% of the buyers in the phone category especially apple products are scammers. Is it this was on amazon aswell or is amazon different because of different procedures?. Thanks

Yes, they are talking about buyer fraud, not seller fraud.

It is quite bad these days with certain products.

Was the 40% buyer fraud rate calculated from your own experience of sales versus problems?

That is extremely high...

Is there a source for this data or is this just your experience?

Yes absolutely .jus about hal of the time i will have a low feedback scammer try and scam me. This was until i put disclaimers in my auctions regardingding needing to call if feedback wasnt high enough. Nigerians are having products shipped to people in the u .s and are having them pay them through western union half the value. They are using stolen bank accounts and charge backs and cases.

In a way yes, if you buy from individual sellers...specially for stuff like earpods, lightning cables etc...i know this because i used to be one of those sellers....i would sell the chinese knock offs under apple listings...it used to make me a lot of money until amazon started cracking down...

but if you buy from FBA sellers, then you should be good

OMG, just can't do business on AMAZON
Too many scammers, especially from NY, FL and NC
Sent signature cofirmation, they claim received empty envelope or broken items, sent without signature, for sure, they calim non-receipt.
And all sorts of bogus shipping addresses
Sellers has no way to protect themselves, cannot fight back, no justice.

On eBay , sellers can block bad buyers, but on AMAZON, sellers just lose.
It's just too hard to do business on AMAZON .... rediculous.

I had one of those last month...claimed received empty box..a big lie of course...almost every 1-2 months i have some scammer claiming ridiculous things in amazon...a few months ago another one claimed non receipt despite usps showed as received...i usually reply them using some letter thats circulating in amazon seller forums about postal inspectors and calling postmaster etc...sellers claim that many times it exposes the scammer who "miraculously" finds the item...unfortunately did not work for me...i had to refund and in another case a chargeback was filed...in the future i will be bending even more backwards to prevent more chargebacks...1% ODR is very easy to reach with those scumbags...

i am selling in ebay the double number of years than i do in amazon and i believe i never got the empty box claim...i cannot remember when was my last defective transaction in ebay actually thats how long that was...i dont claim that ebay is perfect but for sure i feel much safer doing business there and less stress...amazon sales are usually better than elsewhere but in the end they are leveled off by the high number of scammers...only fba can prevent this from happening
