    Yeh, I didn't want to wade through the weeds, but you can look at the sender's email address to see if it's from the legit business, and you can hover over the links to see where they direct.

    But lots of folks don't even know what we're talking about. I've had 2 elderly friends fall victim to scams recently (one lost $13,000 and the other lost her car.) Makes me angry.

    Yvonne,

    This has nothing to do with Amazon but when I visited Huntsville Space n Rocket Center I had to fight a strong temptation to jump on the ship they have hanging from the ceiling of the center. :)

    This is the kind of crap I get from Amazon all the time. When I go into my orders, it will say that the product is arriving tomorrow.

    However, when I click on the trace button, I can see that it hasn't even shipped yet. Given that it's nearly 5:00 pm now, there's no way that it's going to arrive tomorrow. When I look again later tonight or tomorrow morning, they will have changed the date, usually to a range of dates. Nothing ever arrives here on the same day that it is shipped.

    I've likely said this before (I just don't feel like researching), but I have never experienced anything like that. That [obviously] makes zero sense.

    I used to get great service from Amazon, including the 2-day delivery they promised with a Prime membership. When that quit, they used COVID-19 as an excuse, and they have never returned to reasonable service. Most commonly, anything I order won't even be shipped for four or five days or longer. Once shipped, there usually isn't much of a problem with it getting here, although I don't live in an area where we can get same-day delivery. The problem is entirely within Amazon's control because the stuff can't be delivered until they ship it. I don't hold third-party orders against them, although the third-party orders are generally shipped more quickly.
