Does Amazon sell fake products?
On Thursday, the company announced Project Zero, a program designed to reduce the number of fake products for sale on Amazon.
Amazon also sells its own products, but in 2017, more than half of the items customers bought were purchased from these third-party sellers.
Why does Amazon sell fake products?
The one that allows Amazon to be “exempt from prosecution” because they only “import, warehouse, and ship” the counterfeits for the real “sellers”. The law allows Amazon to claim it doesn’t “sell” anything… Just because Amazon isn’t responsible for it doesn’t mean the 3PS can get away with it.

Are all products sold on Amazon authentic?
“Products that are “fulfilled by Amazon” may have the “Prime” logo that makes them look like they’re sold by Amazon–but they aren’t. You’re still buying a product from a third-party seller. However, Amazon doesn’t necessarily confirm that the product is legitimate before shipping it to you.”
