Shopping online can be fraught with hazards as this tale of woe from a recent Amazon buyer will testify. It always helps to check the fine print on some Internet deals, especially when dealing with marketplace buyers and sellers. Some websites, like Amazon, make it really hard for consumers to distinguish between Amazon direct and a third-party buyer, sometimes leading to rare situations in which buyers unknowingly purchase fraudulent product from an online seller listed on their trusted website. That isn’t the case here, but the jury is still out on it all. Sometimes buyers receive a fake product instead of the genuine article, other times it arrives damaged or in less-than-acceptable condition. And then on some occasions it doesn’t arrive at all. Instead, what you get is a box of bricks and the beginnings of a mystery.
