The $500 Billion Black Market Hiding in Plain Sight on Amazon and eBay

If you’ve been patting yourself on the back for snagging what seemed like an incredible deal online, you might want to pump the brakes. While you’ve been playing virtual chess with your shopping cart, nabbing a $300 coat for $50 and calling yourself a genius shopper, organized retail theft has been playing 3D chess. Online marketplaces like Amazon, eBay, and Facebook Marketplace have become hotbeds for stolen goods. By clicking ‘Buy Now,’ you’re not only contributing to an epidemic that sees $500 billion of stolen or counterfeit products sold annually but also making it super easy for these organized criminals to continue their operations.

You see, they’re not just stealing toothpaste or Tide laundry detergent; they’re nailing targeted items that they know have high resale value online. It’s not about filling a belly; it’s about lining pockets. Meanwhile, executives from mega-retailers like Target and Walmart are sounding the alarm. They say it’s not only hurting their bottom line, but it’s also causing legitimate online sellers to lose their stores. While you’ve been enjoying that steep discount, you’re giving these retail criminals a figurative pat on the back and a “Keep up the good work” thumbs-up.
