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.
