    So I was wondering and had an idea. Can I buy higher end electronics such as an ipad or tablet. then a week later say I noticed corrosion around the battery area on the metal, and that the battery has been punctured and leaking. Because it is illegal to ship a possible corrosion/acid containing product without the proper containers and external notifications, will amazon just refund me and allow me to keep the product?

    Ive seen people offer services where they get items for free from amazon, but charge you like 25% that goes straight to them, so a 200$ item they will get for 50$ for you. how do they do that then? I know we actually had a kindle fire leak battery acid, and they said to properly dispose of the product and not to send it in, but then amazon gave us a 100$ off voucher off a new kindle, was wondering if i could do the same but just say I want a refund.

    It is quite simple, you simply say that a brick / something similar came in the box. Although this is simply theft.

    Won't work, they are most likely used to this kind of thing.

    What you are talking about above sounds like credit card fraud.

    Are you out of your flipping mind? do You know what will happen to you if you are caught screwing around like this? dont know what country you are in but you could be facing like 10-20yrs in Prisong !! Do You know what the do in prison all day long? they eat for free, sleep for free, have wild kinky sexy with each other and yes you get to be someones bitch if your a pretty boy or girl. Please just stop asking or doing stupid stuff you can make alot of money on the net the right way dont do this unless you want an extra sized booty hole.

    Coolio +12k pos rep on ebay for legit trades. as If you have never "scammed". ever social engineered? Ever used self made aka fake backlinks? ever used blackhat methods to promote a sale and or website? those are all technically scamming. So get lost scrub.

    Yeah because amazon investigates 200$ claims lol. would cost them more in court + the unwanted publicity.

    credit card fraud would be to claim I didnt authorize it or something through the bank.

    I heard you can also sign a different name when the product gets to you and then call that you never got the product and they will send you a new one.

    I have never tried it, but know people who make a living of this.
