EBay is mad at Amazon and sent them a letter
Sneaky sneaky by Amazon, but shouldn’t you guys at eBay have caught this before being told by a user?
“EBay sent a cease-and-desist letter to Amazon on Monday to stop the alleged recruiting practice after determining roughly 50 Amazon sales representatives world-wide sent more than 1,000 messages to sellers on its platform.”
“EBay investigated the matter after a seller alerted the company about 10 days ago of someone using the messaging system on eBay’s site to convince this seller to move to Amazon.”
“To avoid detection, messages sent by Amazon sales reps stayed generic and frequently used hyphens or periods between letters to describe the rival company, including a-m-a-z-o-n or A.M.Z.N., the cease-and-desist letter alleges. They also spelled out email addresses and phone numbers to avoid automated detection meant to prevent sharing contact information, eBay claims in the letter said.”
