got a 40.00 amazon gift card. I never shop online but this was a one time shot.
So first it demands you open an account which I did not want to do and nothing on the card says its required. Then I choose items and go to the payment method page, Three options were "use my gift card funds/ credit or debit/ checking account. I chose gift card. it would not allow me to place and complete the order unless I gave them my personal checking info!
Nothing on the card says you have to join and give your checking account info! I refused and contacted customer service. NOT surprised a foreign guy in some other country responded and said you have to give your banking info. I said that is illegal to ask for when you are just using a gift card given to you.
he said well you can't order unless you give it.
So I am out the 40.00 and they have the money. I am sure not giving info to a foreign service thats how scams work and phishing/hacking this is illegal
