I don't know how likely that is as I don't sells stuff on Amazon or know anything about their security measures but that's what it sounds like. Ryder's report of them trying to get your credit card details fits with that.
As someone with a lot of behind the scenes experience with Amazon, I can assure you that if it is fake, it removed and dealt with. Amazon prides itself on integrity down to each and every individual working for them. They prioritize sellers based on reviews and the instances of fake items is extremely short lived and few and far between. Virtually non existent to the mass of people who regularly use Amazon every week.
Everyone loves a good deal. When you dont like the product you can send it back lol.
If you dont get your product you get your money back.
To understand who are behind the accounts in the posting from Amazon forums that you presented id have to investigate more.
But those accounts are apparently no longer available for investigation.
