Great work Mike, thank you so much for doing this. Its terrible how people can destroy years of hard work, so easily and in fairness to amazon its hard to know how to deal with it.
I wonder if this is W and H enterprises I think they did something similar to me, for me my online selling accounts were just a side business and I could not afford the time to pursue the case, I did find the name Wali Afzal in companies house, is this the same person Mike?
There needs to be a new law to target these evil people, mis-selling on amazon, mis-representing there goods and when they don’t get there own way they try to bring down a business. I hope the police do something against the person or business that did this to you and you get compensation. I urge everyone to check there negative feedback, we might be talking about the same person, or maybe they use different names.

Hi Mike

This is terrible. So sorry to hear about your plight.

I hope you manage to get your Amazon suspension lifted and negative feedback removed.

Hopefully, someone can take action against the agency and company behind the false claims.

All the best for the future.

Hey Mike

Very dispiriting, echo Chris’ comments above. How frustrating!

I have experienced this sort of thing on Amazon, too. In fact, a product name was even stolen and that product remains a prime target. Each time we have a product rise, someone systematically comes and takes it down in one way or another. This started for us around 2013 and we have walked fine lines to stick around. It’s amazing we can still launch products that do well enough to be deemed “a threat”, thus targeted. I wonder what our business would be like without the ugliness.

I’m very sorry this happened to you and yes, thank God for eBay!

I was suspended on December 2, 2017 For Inauthentic claims on products from Walmart and Big Lots. I was a new Seller and this was depressing. I’m looking to sell on Facebook marketplace, EBay and Mercari.

Long wait for something like that to come, i have been targeted by my competitors for years , but never had guts and new how to tackle the problem.
At the beginning strugled badly to understand that there were anything wrong with my services and products. Only after few months i realised that someone was leaving negative feedback on purpose by seeing events occurring repeatedly within the short time from each other.
I suffered so badly so i was considerimg to close my account as sells went deep diving immediately. After many researches i came across that other an individual was acting alone or a company was behind of filthy tricks.
I am so plesed that at last someone like you Mike can fight the dirty game players and hopefully stop something like that to happen to anyone who wants to make his or her living by spending a lot of effort and hard work for years ,to create a clean and fair business .
I strongly believe they are same people who targeted me and i hope they get arrested and get what they deserve.

I think Amazon is at fault by creating such and easy way to target genuine businesses. Amazon should have well proven reason to close and account not just some negative feedbacks and claim by evil people.

Mike I am sorry to hear about this. It is hard to build a successful business and to see being destroyed by other people for no just reason is heartbreaking

Amazon is about money, people being treated like this has no effect on their bottom line – NONE! You must know that Amazon is a whore of a company, and we all deal with this whore. It is wrong to say Amazon is not culpable is just absurd. Vicious people not being questioned or removed by Amazon, as hard-working people just try to take care of business?

You might not blame Amazon but I do, absolutely. EXACTLY the same thing happened to me with the fake goods/feedback scenario. After several years on eBay I also switched to Amazon after eBay scrapped “Ending Soonest” as the default view for buyers and replaced with “Best Match”, which ruined our business. It didn’t work then and it doesn’t work now, although I have managed to get a small business back up and running on eBay. But it’s a struggle now. But I digress. I built up a six figure turnover too, in fact from almost nothing I was approaching a quarter of a million turnover in just under 18 months. Then it started. first of all a couple of negative feedbacks. Then an A-z claim stating the goods were counterfeit. Then another. Then another. Within a few weeks I was trying to fight off half a dozen or more negatives a day, at least a couple of A-z claims and Item Not Received claims. Exact same pattern, items were being returned by Royal Mail with “Not at this address” labels and yet the “buyers” were sending in fake item A-z claims for items they had not received. I later found… Read more »

Oh, one other thing. If you’re doing well on Amazon and publishing stories about it on here or anywhere else you’re a bloody fool, because you’re simply presenting yourself as a target.

If you’re doing well in ANY business keep it to yourself. The world’s most successful businessmen didn’t get where they are by telling the world how they are doing it.
