State AGs call on Amazon, Facebook and others to crack down on price gouging

A group of 33 AGs from US states called on Amazon, eBay, Facebook, Walmart and Craigslist to prevent price gouging on Covid-19-related products. In a letter the group outlined the steps needed to be taken which include triggering price-gouging protections prior to emergency declarations in a state, being proactive in setting policies and restrictions on sellers and creating a ’fair pricing’ page.

It's not just price people are scamming people on stuff like toilet paper. Look at the reviews for toilet paper that's left on Amazon. Example Bullsh** paper and a bullsh** price You must be out your rabbit a** mind if you think someone is going to pay 20 dollars for 12 rolls then to have expedited shipping that’s another 90 dollars....

How is it scamming when you're buying low and selling high? Supply and demand. Every good business does this.

Artificial scarcity makes a great profit; and an abhorrent business.

If you don’t want to pay $350.00 for hand sanitizer, DON’T! Wash your hands with soap and water, it works! AND if we all do that and leave these guys with a garage full of hand sanitizer they can’t sell because we’re not buying they will stop. The government can’t run the post office, we can’t give them more prosecutorial power because of a virus. Everybody just calm down. We’re gonna make it.
