Excluded from Amazon's marketplace for comment fraud, 600 Chinese brands are counterattacking.
Although they admit not having respected the regulation imposed since 2016 by Amazon to no longer seek to obtain in a litigious manner glowing reviews, in exchange for coupons most often, these companies (known under the names Sopownic, Slaouwo, Deyixun, Cstech, Recoo Direct, Angelbliss and Tudi) are still asking to recover what they have earned before being excluded, which they estimate at several hundred thousand dollars.
Their complaint is based on their desire to "recover funds which are illegally and improperly withheld by Amazon" and to "cease all other embezzlement and misuse of funds which are legally and legitimately owed to thousands of Amazon sellers and merchants."
