Amazon

Is it me or have Amazon gone really bad lately.

Wife ordered a book 3 months ago, she knew there was a due date of the end of May before delivery but then gets an email to say another 2 months.

Wife ordered an electrial item off Amazon, 2 weeks lead time, just had an email now not available till Novemeber

I ordered a CD, 2 week lead time, now been told another 3 months

I ordered another CD, in stock, now got an email 4 month delivery time

WTF is going on!!!!!!!!!

I don't touch Amazon with a barge poll tbh. They seem to have good prices for stuff, but I don't like the way that you can easily be deceived into buying something from Amazon when it's actually coming from a marketplace seller.

I have only ever used Amazon once and that was to order my camera a while back, I ordered it on the Thursday night and received it on the Saturday morning so I couldn't complain really
