Amazon reported on the fight against speculators

Corporation Amazon.com Inc said it is working with state prosecutors to identify and punish third-party sellers who exploit consumer concerns about the coronavirus epidemic.

In a letter to US Senator Edward Markey, Amazon.com Inc said it has removed more than half a million product offers made by companies using the capabilities of the Amazon Internet platform. This was done for two reasons: either because of concerns that the prices of products are unreasonably high or because of unfair advertising that claims that certain products can fight the coronavirus.

Senator Markey previously discovered on Amazon’s website that a small $ 10 bottle of hand sanitizer is being offered for sale for $ 400. In the United States, many stores were faced with an influx of customers who were buying up necessities in a panic.
