Amazon shipments sabotaged during Corona pandemic

A birthday gift for my friend in Florida arrived on time, and the package looked fine .... sealed and no signs of tampering. But inside the box, the Godiva birthday truffle package had been opened and half the contents gone and a 2 lb container of cashews was also unsealed and half the contents gone. My friend is aware of the press that Amazon workers felt their safety was being neglected by their Amazon employer, and he feared that further handling of the delivery could have infectious consequences, so he carefully bagged and discarded the delivery, and carefully disinfected the area. I tried contacting Amazon or the sellers and my only option was to write a review: the phones are no longer manned and email is not available. I write here to encourage anyone receiving an order that has been clearly tampered with .... especially food .... to dispose of the items immediately as my friend did! I will not be ordering edibles from Amazon until they get their house in order.

You must remember...and be careful when shopping on AMAZON...many items are 3rd party items, and not mailed from Amazon, but thru a 3rd party. I have had issues a few times with 3rd party sellers on Amazon and Make them aware so they can review and take the seller to account or be removed.

Alan B is absolutely right in that.  I do sometimes buy on amazon but only items shipped from their own warehouses (which themselves are often terrible sweatshops).  I also never NEVER buy food or health related things there.  Also in cases like  Joan M reported, take pictures of the shipment & report them.  Also use the photo's for doing a chargeback as what was done to her is clearly very illegal.
