Received fake honey from Amazon. But I tested/realized this after some months of order. Anything can be done?

They are not refunding / replacing saying I contacted them after 10 days (replacement period). Thing is I tested it after 2 months. Completely fake. Anything that I can do against the seller / amazon?

To be honest Amazon’s 10 day return policy on almost all items is very fair compared to some other online retailers.

I don’t think you can do anything here, since you ran out of the allowed return window.

Maybe you can now contact the company directly and resolve the matter.

You are not alone getting trapped in the fake honey scandal, I think they recently found out a large majority of the honey sold in the market were found to be adulterated.

It is quite bleak scenario with regards to purity of honey. Even after adulterated results these companies send ‘special’ unadulterated sample for testing & claim it’s pure. I give emphasis only to random testing through a credible third party.

Why don’t you report it amazon, they will refund you. I use to by pantry from amazon, sometimes I receive damaged /leakage items. I just mail amazon along with pics of that product. They issue refund /replaced against those products.
Also report the seller, some shrewd third party sellers sell counterfeit products. Recently my friend bought a Dell laptop battery. The seller had mention that battery is authentic dell brand, but it turn out to be fake upon checking the serial number with dell customer care. My friend logged a complain to amazon, & got refunded. The battery was returned to the seller.

…I bought honey of 3-4 brands and good tested brands….and we get supply from our native village as well….so in short most of the packaged stuff is adulterated…

I think the return period of 10 days is dangerous during Covid 19. as it promotes infections, the virus now shown to be able to live upto 28 days.
https://www.indiatoday.in/science/story/how-lon...
So there should at least be a 30 days return window.

I didnt understand confused
If they increase the return window to 30 days , and someone returns after 2 days the case would be same ,you mean to say amazon should keep a return policy of “minimum” 30 days , i.e. the customer should keep the product with him for 30 days atleast and then return ? This sounds funny, hope this is not what you mean
Or you mean to say that the customer should open the parcel after 28 days ? confused

I meant there should be a return window of at least upto 30 days or 0-30 days.
i.e. if a person is risk averse then during this pandemic time he should have the option to open the parcel after 28 days if he so wishes.

Amazon return was 30 days for the US. You could even ask for a price difference if the price dropped in that time but they stopped that..

This is the fake honey. As for test, just watch the videos. It froze at room temperature, tastes like sugar.

Also, I wrote a nasty 1-star review which was successfully posted in Dec but later taken down by Amazon. Amazing.
