Mian Chanuu and Sahiwal, two cities in Punjab, have reportedly been designated as fraudulent red zones by Amazon because sellers based there have been discovered engaging in fraudulent activities. According to sources, Amazon has also blocked IP addresses from Mian Channu, so people from these regions are now using Dubai or the computers of other customers to access their accounts.

According to the information, the sellers are engaging in frauds known locally as

  1. Kabootar (pigeon trick)
  2. Rickshaw trick
  3. Carding
  4. Filing

1. Kabootar (pigeon trick)

When a buyer orders products from a fraudulent Amazon seller, sellers use the Kabootar trick, i.e. fake tracking. Two different websites offer fake tracking services.

However, such sellers notify the customers that it will take 15 to 20 days to deliver their orders. Typically, Amazon credits the amount to sellers within 14 days. Since the customer believes the sellers, there are no complaints made, and after 14 days, Amazon transfers the money to the seller. Actual buyers never receive their products, and the dishonest sellers profit. According to reports, sellers profit significantly from this Kabootar trick.

2. Carding trick

The majority of users who register on a dark web website are engaged in carding. Such individuals purchase hacked cards from such websites for $100 to $200 with all pertinent information, such as the card number, expiration date, and Card Verification Value (CVV).

These cards are used by these vendors to purchase and resell prepaid gift cards. They can avoid being apprehended by the police in this manner.

3. Filing Trick

Another approach is filing, where sellers receive the order on an Amazon account, purchase it from a different account, and ship the item to the original, true buyer. They created such second accounts with Sam’s Club, Walmart, and other merchants, buy the goods that Amazon customers had ordered, and use the delivery addresses of the customers.

With some assistance from Sam’s Club’s staff, all the orders that have been delivered to Amazon customers are refunded as the same buyer gets delivery from one seller. The fraudulent seller receives the money from the buyer and the refund from the second vendor.

Sales Tax Fraud in the US

Additionally, some sellers are misusing information about publicly accessible US-registered companies. For instance, they just use the company’s information they find on Google to purchase Amazon Business Prime, where they buy the products for Amazon customers.

However, this is limited to Amazon to Amazon drop shipping. In addition to registering Amazon Business Prime accounts, the seller chooses the name of the company director and establishes an email account. The seller then removes the purchase tax using the company’s EIN. The business pays all unpaid sales tax at the end of the fiscal year. Additionally, per Amazon policy, they offer their business customers a one-month free trial. Only 29 days are used by the sellers on these Amazon Prime accounts, and
