Amazon can bite my ass


By Q-Bert - Posted on 22 February 2013

So, I created an Amazon user account so that I can use the Kindle app on my new iPad mini.
Inside of 20 minutes of me creating the account, I got 10 spam emails (non Amazon) and 3 robo-phone calls (non Amazon) to sell me shit. All to my home phone and personal email address.

I usually use fictitious phone numbers and disposable email addresses, but Amazon is a Big Company(tm) and they specifically tell you in the account creation that they will verify the email and phone number by calling you. Nice.

Fuck you, Amazon.

But why would you want to get the Kindle app for an ipad?

I guess if your eyes can stand reading a book on a bright screen for long periods of time then it's fine.

Also, this doesn't prove that Amazon was the one emailing you and calling you. Could have been coincidence.
