(Natural News) Every tech giant has a dirty little secret that behind its market success. In the early days of dial-up internet, for example, AOL (which stands for America On Line) earned most of its revenues from pay-by-the-hour connection fees that granted users access to adult chat rooms. Google’s success has been ensured by it functioning as a surveillance engine for the NSA; eBay is the internet’s most popular sales hub for stolen goods; and Facebook was thrust into a dominant tech position by its alliance with intelligence entities (CIA, etc.) that use Facebook to track the whereabouts and social connections among hundreds of millions of users.
So what’s Amazon.com’s dirty little secret? Counterfeit products.
Amazon has been selling counterfeit products for over a decade
Amazon.com has, for over a decade, extracted obscene profits from the sales of counterfeit products of all kinds. Dietary supplements, Birkenstock sandals, luxury watches and brand-name clothing… it’s all being counterfeited and sold by Amazon.com by the minute. The problem is so bad, in fact, that Jeff Bezos — who also owns the counterfeit news publication known as The Washington Post — has a moral (and perhaps legal) responsibility to stop the mass counterfeiting of retail brands taking place at Amazon.com. Yet he does nothing.
See, Bezos makes money whether the products are authentic or not. Counterfeit sales earn Amazon just as much as the “real” brands, but customers are getting ripped off by being sold fake products at seemingly “reasonable” prices.
Now, Amazon may have finally crossed the line. The company has been selling counterfeit eclipse viewing glasses that falsely claimed to protect viewers from the eyesight-damaging effects of direct sunlight radiation. It turns out the fake viewing glasses don’t offer the protection they claimed, and potentially thousands of people may suffer permanent eyesight damage — or even blindness — after using these counterfeit products they purchased on Amazon.com. (These counterfeit products are made in China, the same country where a baby milk manufacturer replaced powdered milk with kidney-damaging melamine to boost their profits, resulting in the widespread deaths of hundreds of infants. So don’t have any illusions about what Chinese-based manufacturers will sell you in order to make an extra buck for themselves. They’re communists, after all. They have no morals or ethics whatsoever… just like communists everywhere.) (Click to Site)
