    I have a second Amazon account I use to make listings I have no intention of selling. I make condition notes indicating the item is damaged so people dont buy but there are bots that still auto purchase items despite this. In one case I had a bot buy 40 of my listings despite the conditions.

    Heres my question: How can I most effectively counter these script "auto-buyers" so I can continue using this account without being suspended?

    I understand if someone is to cancel 40 orders, your metrics would blow up and you'll get prematurely suspended / banned shortly after. Heres 3 routes I can take:

    1) I could mark these as shipped but I'll get eventual A-to-Z claim once the buyer realizes the item does not exist.

    2) I could cancel all the orders, spawn the "At Risk" Account status and eventual suspension.

    3) I could ignore the orders and do nothing. I dont know what this route will do but I suspect it will follow the lines of route 2.

    4) I could message the buyer and ask them to cancel and say there was a pricing error. (Already attempted and got no response)

    What method would be the most strategic / logical manner in prolonging my accounts life? I understand what I am doing may not make sense, but I would like to seek answers.

    Please keep responses on topic to my question. Thank you =)
