Folks have historically made fun of the likes of Wish and Craigslist for featuring items and services that raise more questions than they answer.

Well, apparently, Amazon is guilty of this too. On a smaller scale, but one that still exists. And you bet there’s a dedicated online group that’s all about sharing the gems found on it, namely the subreddit r/AmazonWTF, or The Deep, Dark Rabbit Hole Of Amazon.com.

So, Reddit is home to r/AmazomWTF, also known as the The Deep, Dark Rabbit Hole Of Amazon.com. It’s dedicated to finding the weirdest, funniest, scammiest or downright WTF? things found on Amazon.

And it’s not just things, per se. The description invites folks to share shipping adventures and policies, customer service experience and everything in between.

As of this article, the group has 50,000 members who collectively deliver weirdness on the daily.

Places like Wish and Craigslist have embraced their reputation of being and attracting all shades of weird, but you wouldn’t likely expect Amazon to be in the same boat. Minus all the books you can find there.

But, it should come as no surprise because while Amazon has a number of its own products and services on offer, it’s originally and primarily a platform for people to sell stuff online. It’s like a mall that houses stores owned by other people. As such, it’s not really Amazon that sells all these weird, scammy or bootleggy products, but rather the stores that it hosts on its platform.

Now, sure, Amazon has a pretty good policy and system going to keep scammers, bootleggers and other shenanigan lovers away from people who just want to get a back scratcher and a book on why swearing is unacceptable, but remember that products came in varying shades of gray and it is sometimes hard to determine what goes and what doesn’t.

The official Amazon store policy has a detailed list of products that are off limits. This includes things like weapons, medicine, get rich quick products and the like all have clear limitations and categories, Garfield toys that have seen better days and handbags with Princess Diana on them fall into a category of where to draw the line and how to enforce it in general?

Then there’s the rest of the subreddit that features things other than products.

One person once ordered just one hoodie for their one (I’ll stop) kid, but some force of nature turned that into them receiving 62 hoodies. Clearly an error on Amazon’s part.

And then there was a delivery confirmation picture for one of the other Redditor’s packages, which was simply placed not at their house, but on a car that’s not owned by them that’s parked on a public street.

How/Why??! Wth Amazon

Cinndderrella Report

Then there’s all the times people ordered one thing and got another—namely how a person ordered corn oil but received peanut oil and hence left a bad review. Well, Amazon prompted for hiding the review from the public instead of making things right.

But it gets crazier: one person broke a finger and ordered a split. Instead, they got sent a kilogram of oats. No, they weren’t really packaged, just loose in a box.

We won’t even get started with all of the times pictures depict questionable things, like skulls on a patio fire pit, or those long descriptions that manage to use every relevant keyword possible just to make a sale.

But none of this should be surprising considering a slew of problems that plague Amazon. Whether related or not.

You just have to call the number for support instead of going through the online process. They can authorize most things for refund

Stores have to go through a lot just to make a sale considering the strict payout policies, extremely high level of competition, high Amazon fees and packaging restrictions, just to name a few.

And, on a more grandiose scale, the company itself has been criticized for its anti-competitive practices, treatment of workers and customers alike, environmental impact and a slew of other things.
