Below is a review I wrote for a product I bought from Amazon. It explains my issue. I was correct, they refused to post it. I included pictures with the review as proof. The product is called Razor Cuts by Hotstuff. Suddenly it's "Currently unavailable. We don't know when or if this item will be back in stock". Here's the review:
BEWARE OF BUYING THIS PRODUCT FULFILLED BY AMAZON!!!
BEWARE OF BUYING THIS PRODUCT FULFILLED BY AMAZON FOR THE $12.95 PRICE.
RECEIVED BOTTLE AND LOOKED FOR EXPIRE DATE, IT WAS ON THE BOTTOM OF THE BOTTLE PRINTED ON A STICKER THAT WAS SLITED INTO 4 SECTIONS. I AM FAMILIAR WITH THIS PRODUCT, I HAVE PURCHASED IT IN THE PAST SO I KNOW WHERE THE EXPIRE DATE SHOULD BE. WHERE IT SHOULD BE WAS ON THE EDGE OF THE BOTTLE'S LABEL, BUT COVERING THE EDGE OF THE LABEL THERE WAS A LONG AMAZON LABEL WITH THE NAME OF THE PRODUCT AND AMAZON'S BAR CODE. I PEELED OFF AMAZON'S LABEL TO FIND THE EDGE OF THE BOTTLE'S LABEL HAD BEEN CUT OFF, I COULD SEE THE RAZOR BLADE MARK LEFT ON THE BOTTLE. I PEELED OFF THE STICKER ON THE BOTTOM OF THE BOTTLE TO SEE IF THERE WAS ANYTHING UNDER IT, THERE WAS NOTHING. THIS STICKER LABEL SAID EXPIRE DATE 7/18. I CALLED HOTSTUFF AND TALKED TO PAUL, HE VERIFIED WERE THE EXPIRE DATE SHOULD BE...ON THE EDGE OF THE LABEL. SENT IT BACK. I'LL BE SURPRISED IF AMAZON POSTS THIS REVIEW.
Paul from Hotstuff ran the lot # on the bottle's label and it's actual expire date is 8/2017....Go figure!
UPDATE 7/18/17.....As of today I am no longer allowed to leave reviews for products I've purchased on Amazon. When I try a window appears saying:.... "Sorry, we are unable to accept your review of this product for either one or both of the following reasons: Your previous review of this product did not comply with our customer service guidelines. Amazon does not permit reviews from customers whose relationship to the product or seller may be perceived as biased".
There are dozens of purchases I have yet to review, none of which I have a relationship with the seller or product.
This is revenge for leaving this review on this site.....Hey Amazon, I DON"T CARE!
UPDATE 8/9/17......Today I received an email that states:
