Amazon Is Banning Customers For Making Too Many Returns

Published

on


Amazon may be expanding to services such as facial recognition systems (Rekognition) and virtual assistants (Alexa), but the heart of the business still lies at its limitless online shopping platform, which has been lauded for its convenient shipping and lax return policy. Or so it seems. Amazon has been banning customers from shopping on the site for making too many returns. Some shoppers have even reported that their gift cards were taken away, too.

According to The Wall Street Journal, one customer named Nir Nissim recently received an email in March notifying him that his account had been closed due to his return activity. “You cannot open a new account or use another account to place orders on our site,” Amazon wrote. He said he returned just one item this year — a computer drive — and four items last year, and had “contacted them almost every day for a week or two” following the ban. His $450 USD gift card was also taken away. Another customer in NYC named Shira Golan said her account was shut down without explanation earlier this month. After she called and emailed Amazon several times she received a response saying her account was permanently terminated. She said she didn’t receive any warnings.

This isn’t anything new; customers have been taking to Twitter and other social media platforms to complain about Amazon’s banning. “We want everyone to be able to use Amazon, but there are rare occasions where someone abuses our service over an extended period of time,” an Amazon spokesman said to the WSJ. “We never take these decisions lightly, but with over 300 million customers around the world, we take action when appropriate to protect the experience for all our customers.”

Video: Somebody Threw A Drink At Tomi Lahren And Posted It On Twitter

Even though Tomi Lahren is politically insane for ratings, she’s still a white lady, so she went to brunch in Minneapolis. Brave Resistance fighters, also at brunch, threw a drink at her.

Lahren, 25, explained that she was at brunch with her parents when a group of patrons she assumed to be around her age threw water at her and “chanted profanities.” She called the incident “embarrassing.” “I think that those that threw the water and were applauding and laughing about it wanted to get their 15 minutes of fame by making video of me. I think looking back, those are the people that are going to be embarrassed by their actions. I think their parents raised them better,” Lahren said.

Twitter is now being mean to Tomi Lahren and saying she deserved it or whatever. She should join MS-13 so they’ll be nicer to her.

People Used World Cup Trophies To Smuggle Drugs

Published

Excitement over the 2018 World Cup has struck just about every country in the world. However, it appears as if some in Argentina were a little too excited over the world’s most popular sport. That includes the so-called “Narcos de la Copa” organization, who didn’t do the best job hiding their finely crafted product.

Argentinian authorities reportedly seized 10 kilograms of cocaine from the “Narcos de la Copa” — along with 20 kg of marijuana — $15,000 in cash and 1800 doses of crack cocaine known as “Paco.” The fun part is that all of this was stuffed inside replica World Cup championship trophies.

Buenos Aires Security Minister Cristian Ritondo tweeted photos of the fake souvenirs that were used to smuggle the drugs while announcing the arrest of two women and four men who are believed to be the mules attempting to cross into Argentina.

“These merchants of death have endless ingenuity, but don’t be fooled. They shouldn’t be admired. On the contrary… they are now in jail,” said minister Ritondo, in a statement.

This marks the second time in a matter of days that fake World Cup souvenirs were used to hide drugs. On Tuesday, Colombian police seized 14 fake World Cup jerseys that were drenched in a substance that turns into cocaine when treated. The jerseys, which were laced with about five kilos of cocaine in total, were reported en route to Spain.
