  1. I know you like to focus on the cheaters that Amazon seems to be letting get away with it, but most stores figure into their numbers that they won’t be able to stop each and every shoplifter without locking the store down so tight that no one would want to shop there.

    So let’s focus on the page scammers. Do we know for a fact they blinked Amazon’s KU for over ten million(50%) A million(<5%)? $225K(1%)? Without facts we don't know how bad things really are or how well/poorly Amazon is over/under reacting.
