Amazon has made a fortune selling counterfeit products… and today it might cause thousands to lose their eyesight
(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.
