Here in Brazil I do this monthly like 2-4 times with those big comic books called OMNIBUS worth 50 - 200 dollars (minimum wage in brazil: 300 dollars, so you can calculate how pricey imported comic books are)

I've been doing this for almost 2 years, 2 accounts were blocked since, same address, not a single problem. It appears that "mail fraud / amazon scams" are not really a thing here or they arent looking into it YET. Brazil o/

Done this about three times this year with no problems. Couple smaller priced items and the last one was the first big one of around $250ish. That was in September. Figured will do it one more time this year either around Black Friday/Cyber Monday or closer to Christmas for obvious reasons.

Probably limit it to once a quarter (and maybe even less) depending how much the items in question are and how frequently you make purchases in general.

Though yeah, when you're able the refund/return thing is the better option.

Doesn't always have to be the exact same thing either - just say they sent the wrong item. Buy/acquire the cheaper model or Brand in store then swap it with the version you order. THAT probably want to do less often as well though.

I never have (yet anyways) in the 5+ years of doing it, but I imagine if it's a higher priced item or you've done it too many times they may ask for one.

You should move on to refund fraud rather than the not delivered thing with them.

What do you mean by "refund fraud"?

Returning used/broken stuff for stuff in brand new condition.

Ripped jacket? No problem. Find the same brand and model on Amazon, purchase, return your ripped one and keep new one. Wait for refund.

You can do this across millions of items.

Running out of laundry soap? Just get a new gallon and return the old (empty) one saying it spilled in box.

Limit this to 10-15 return orders per account. You don’t even need purchases on the account for this to work.
