Software Creates Fake Amazon Receipts

submitted on December 11, 2010 by anand in "Stores / Merchants"
You're a small retailer doing business on Amazon.com, and a customer submits a receipt for a refund. The receipt looks genuine, and the customer says the purchased item didn't arrive. But it's a scam.

An Amazon "receipt generator" is being distributed online, and it allows a user to enter information -- like order placed, order number, item name, your name and address, and so on -- and create a fake receipt that looks virtually identical to the one Amazon provides for you to print. The fake receipt can be printed, or captured in a screen shot for e-mailing.

    It is important for anyone who sells with Amazon or even eBay to watch out for this--good merchant practice to be wary!

    I guess there are people who actually have time to do all that, however you would have to verify your credit card transaction or authorization with the merchant to get the goods or refund.
