Price gouging and defective products rampant on Amazon, reports find
Public Citizen's report includes two instances of markups of 1,000 percent or more: disposable face masks, which were selling for $40 instead of $4, and corn starch, which sold for $9 instead of $0.90. "It is troubling that so much effort was put into blaming third-party sellers, but so little effort was made to stop the price increases—including on the products sold by Amazon directly," the report concludes. "Amazon is not merely a victim in the price gouging on its marketplace. It is a perpetrator."
Amazon prices go up and down daily with sales projections too!
