It is so frustrating to shop on Amazon with the Chinese sellers and manufacturers on the site.
The fake reviews are overwhelming (think 50-90% fake reviews on FakeSpot or ReviewMeta), plus the products are cheap and break and when you go back to the manufacturer, most of them don't exist after 1-2 years. I would assume it's the same group of people making crappy merchandise and cycling their names over and over again and buying the same fake reviews.
Beyond this, I'm always worried that they've put some pollutant or carcinogen into the manufacturing process because their regulations are so lax. The examples in the media are countless--toothpaste with diethylene glycol, pet food that kills our dogs and cats, toys with lead paint, make up with lead, beryllium, bacterial contamination, cheap hardware that self destructs after a year.
And it can be so hard to tell because they often manufacture for companies like Mattel and Nestle so you think you're getting American or European.
This has been going on for decades and we just turn a blind eye to it because they're cheaper. Business ethics wise, they're about where the US was in the 1920s. This is an example of how capitalism can result in deadly consequences without strong governmental regulation.
Please feel free to downvote me into oblivion, whatever, I don't care, I'm just sick of the nonsense.
EDIT: Thank you for the discussion. In response to comments:
- Of the top 100,000 sellers on Amazon, 58% are from China, 36% from the United States. This does not take into account manufacturing.
- Amazon shut down its China marketplace last year because consumers weren't willing to stray from JD and Taobao (Alibaba)
