He had to have known he would get caught EVENTUALLY!!! A young man found a way to scam Amazon and got away with nearly $370K in the process. The 22-year-old, James Gilbert Kwarteng, of Palma de Mallorca, Spain, allegedly scammed Amazon by ordering items on the site and thus returning them shortly after delivery. Only he would keep the item ordered, fill up the ordered items’ boxes with dirt, and registered it with the exact weight of the product. He would then receive a refund from Amazon and sell the original item. The return packages would end up sitting around in Amazon’s warehouses where they aren’t checked often. The whole scam wasn’t discovered until someone opened one of the returned boxes and discovered it was full of dirt. He was arrested and released on bail.
