They are data mining. Explained in detail in many past threads.

When they purposely misprice items just to gather information (verified billing/telephone numbers, etc)...there's no mistake in order to have a "price mistake".

I do understand that this is a hit or miss. I've no intention of misguiding fellow members.
Thought it would be similar to Free umbrella deal that was FP few days back and hence posted.

Chat conversation with Amazon representative:
Amazon : I do understand, but I can confirm, we'll share your shipping address only for sellers.
Amazon.com provides oversight of Marketplace transactions. Credit card information is held on Amazon.com's secure server, and is never shared with Marketplace sellers.
So there is nothing to worry about this.

Facepalm

Please tell me you're not naive enough to put an item filled by Amazon (umbrella) in the same category as a new overseas shipped and sold seller with almost every item mispriced (with the same scam theme of only selling "Best Sellers" in each category).


You also need to gain a little common sense and understand data does not just involve credit card information.

Asking for everything from additional payment via paypal, fraudlently using your telephone number to call you "as Amazon" in order to attempt to gain CC info, etc is just some of the methods others have reported.

If you personally do or don't fall for their phishing tactics......isn't really the point. There's 99+ clown buyers for them to try on. They ain't batting for 1000 each time.......so just fraudlently gaining access to a few hacked accounts will do nicely.

End result though is still the same: You never even remotely have a chance of getting the product in question.

It looks like the scam listing (being their listing now has the Buy Box) influenced the AWD auto-repricer laugh out loud

You're not understanding what I said. The fact this scammer has the Buy Box is what is influencing the AWD automatic repricer (hence the low AWD prices).

It's a program/bot so has no idea that the competing third party offer is a fraudulent listing. It's just repricing based on an algorithm.
