    This is amazon for! Answer nothing! Keep going in circles until the customer gives up in frustration. Make sure you lie as often as necessary and even though you will resolve nothing, assure the customer that you have resolved everything.

    I'm actually beginning to believe that amazon is being controlled by a human hating AI. Customer service is now either a bunch of idiots from india who's only job is to lie to amazon's customers, or it is an AI pretending to be a bunch of idiots from india.

    Please note that I didn't use uppercase letters for amazon or india. This is an intentional act of disrespect. I am tired of taking to people in india or hispanics with accents so bad they can not rightly claim to be speaking English and language barrier so thick they can't even understand the question, let alone, answer it.

    I tried the same avenues -- chat, custom service, e-mails, and finally an e-mail to Jeff Bezos that was later NOT answered by one of his executives. I think it is time to pursue legal action against Amazon. This appears to be a high volume disclosure, so a class action lawyer would likely take this case on for a chance at a portion of the money recovered. Since we don't know where, when, or to whom they released our information, we don't know what losses we will suffer down the road, but based upon how deceptive Amazon is being, we have a right to be concerned and to compel them to provide more information.
