Hackers Drain Potential Millions from Amazon Accounts
Last week, Amazon.com completed its investigation into hundreds of third-party seller accounts that had been breached and drained of potentially millions of dollars.
Hackers managed to unlock seller accounts and change information to redirect funds to their own bank accounts.
And it’s not the first time this has happened. In 2016 and 2017, sellers on Amazon’s platform complained of tens of thousands of dollars’ worth of fraudulent transactions and unapproved transfers, too.
But this year, the number of accounts and amount of money stolen was so large that the online retailer couldn’t ignore it any longer.
That's because when it identifies fraudulent transfers, even if it can’t get the money back, it still makes up the loss to the merchant or customer. And that’s costing the company more and more each year.
It’s most likely that it wasn’t Amazon’s systems that were compromised. The company concluded that the seller information was likely obtained through other hacked companies (think Target and Equifax) and then sold on the dark web.
The company is working with Barclay’s and PrePay Technologies to track down the stolen funds and bring the hackers to justice. The banks were “innocently mixed up in the wrongdoing,” as hackers moved money through accounts there.
So the thieves will either get caught or live life on the lam from now on. Neither end sounds great to me. And all for just a few million dollars. Not a good plan from the start.
Especially when there’s a way those hackers could’ve “skimmed” even more from Amazon’s accounts and not broken the law at all...
We’re Legally Stealing Billions
It’s called Prime Profits. And it’s pretty simply a multibillion-dollar payout from Amazon.
My colleague and I first uncovered it about a year ago. At first, it seemed too good to be true — a guaranteed payment from Amazon.
Usually the only way you get a guaranteed payment from a company is through a dividend. And Amazon doesn’t pay those. Any money the company has left over goes right back into growing the company.
And this was a massive payout to say the least. Last year, it totaled nearly $1.5 BILLION.
This year, it’s going to be even bigger. And you don’t even have to be an Amazon investor. Heck, you don’t even need a Prime membership.
You just get your name on the distribution list and watch the money start rolling into your account.
It sounds too good to be true, right? That’s exactly why I spent so much time researching this opportunity.
I’m not one to look a gift horse in the mouth, but I also know there’s no such thing as a free lunch.
But try as I might, I couldn’t poke any holes in the strategy. So I gave it a shot. And when I saw how successful it was, I recommended the members of my investing community, The Wealth Advisory, give it a shot themselves.
Now, remember, this is completely legal. I opened with the story about the hackers to make a point.
You can make millions as a criminal. But you’ll be on the run for the rest of your life.
And when you can make billions without ever worrying about a run-in with the cops or Interpol, those millions just don’t sound like enough.
Since I let my readers know about it, people are writing and calling and sending videos telling me what a change it’s made in their accounts. They’re thanking me for helping them get to an early retirement and praising me for uncovering this and other incredibly profitable investments for them.
But that’s not good enough for me. I want to help more people get the kind of results my readers already do.
So I want to get you in on the next round of payments, too.

Next Prime Payment Coming Soon
You see, we’ve only got a few days left until the next round of payments gets divided up. And if your name isn’t on the list before that happens, then you won’t get a piece of this payout.
June 12 is the final day to get involved and collect your share of the hundreds of millions being distributed.
On the 13th, they’ll be seeing who’s on the list, splitting the funds up, and getting the checks printed and wire transfers scheduled.
And if you wait to act, you’ll be sitting around wishing you hadn’t.
My colleague and I put all the information you need together in a video presentation. You can watch it by clicking here.
It’ll give you all the information you need to get your name on the list and start collecting your piece of these Prime Profits.
Or, if you prefer to have a detailed report to read instead, you can get all the same information in written format by clicking here.
Again, it’s got everything you’ll need to get started and collect your share of the next round of payments coming June 12.
However you access the information, don’t delay. June 12 may seem far away right now.
But we all know how quickly time passes — whether you’re having fun or not. And I know you’re not going to be having fun when you realize it’s June 13 and you’re not getting a Prime Profit check.
