Quick Answer: Can You Get Scammed On Amazon Prime?

Can you get scammed on Amazon?

Yes, you can sometimes find crazy deals on Amazon that are legitimate, but when an expensive item is discounted more than 30%, you should be wondering why.

This goes double for any items being sold from a new, “just launched” third-party seller.

Keep in mind, however, not all third-party sellers are scammers.

Is buying from Amazon safe?

Yes. If you are concerned about the safety and reliability, make sure to purchase directly from Amazon (as opposed to a 3rd party that is selling on Amazon). While almost all 3rd party sellers are honest, there are a few that acquire fake goods for resale.
