A man has found himself banned from Amazon for life for returning too many items.
British shopper Greg Nelson has bought 343 items from Amazon since he joined the site 14 years ago, and in that time he has returned 37 because they were faulty or did not match the product description on Amazon’s site.
In a move that has shocked many, Amazon decided to permanently shut down his account, a decision that has angered Mr. Nelson.
Speaking to The Guardian, he said: “I could understand [it] if there were evidence that I had somehow tried to abuse the system, but I haven’t,” adding that he thought Amazon’s decision to close his account just because he’d sent back items was “outrageous”.
