Amazon employees are reportedly bribed to sell internal sales data

Amazon employees are reportedly bribed to sell internal sales data

As per the report published by the Wall Street Journal, Amazon employees are bribed by sellers to sell internal sales data that is ought to give sellers an edge against their customers. Moreover, employees are asked to delete negative reviews, turn over reviewer e-mail addresses, unban banned accounts etc. Amazon is currently investigating the matter of bribery.

Reportedly, middlemen used social media sites like WeChat to approach employees and then offered them money to release internal information. According to the WSJ report, it costs approximately $300 to take a bad review down and brokers are demanding a minimum of five reviews per transaction. Employees are also bribed to provide the e-mail address of customers, who gave bad reviews.

Amazon spokesperson has confirmed that the company has restricted the access for employees and is also auditing what employees can access. “We have strict policies and a Code of Business Conduct & Ethics in place for our employees. We hold our employees to a high ethical standard and anyone in violation of our Code faces discipline, including termination and potential legal and criminal penalties,” says Amazon spokesperson. The company has zero tolerance for system abuse and strict action will be taken against anyone who is found to be involved. After the thorough investigation is done, any further comments can be made by the company.
