Never order electronics from Amazon. Apparently, a cottage industry has been created wherein people buy expensive electronic products from Amazon, remove the product from the packaging then return the packaging for a full refund. Amazon apparently returns the empty packaging to inventory without ever checking to see if it actually contains product. I ordered an Apple Watch from Amazon and only received the packaging boxes with bits of metal where the watch and charger should have been. According to buyer feedback on the Amazon site it happens often. People also return damaged or non-working electronics which Amazon just returns to inventory and resell as new.

Sort of horribly compelling, and a timely warning!

...I did get a recent "brush" from China...a survival "bicycle chain/razor blade" tree saw...I thought it was some freebie car seat buckle for our Chiweenie, Shaggy...but, not with the razor blades!

I do a lot of online shopping but only from reputable sources and very rarely for clothing - I find that I really need to try things on due to the different sizing by different manufacturers.

It also helps to use a system like so you aren't giving out your card information to retailers.
