Amazon Suspends Price-Gouging Sellers

Half a million products were involved.

Jeff Bezos, founder and CEO of Amazon, told his investors that he has kicked out more than 6,000 sellers from the website for price gouging items during the coronavirus outbreak. Their suspensions included more than 500,000 items offered for sale.

In addition, he said, “Amazon turned over information about sellers we suspect engaged in price gouging of products related to COVID-19 to 42 state attorneys general offices.”

He said the company created a special communication channel for state attorneys to escalate consumer complaints to Amazon quickly.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For all businesses to avoid the temptation to engage in price-gouging during and after the coronavirus pandemic.
  • For state attorneys general who are dealing with complaints on many levels of irresponsible activities of individuals and businesses during the virus outbreak.
