Amazon in trouble with Postman Pat
by Nick Farrell on05 February 2009
It seems that the online mail order outfit Amazon.com has fallen foul of the US postal service.
The online retailer said in the annual report it recently filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission that it was being investigated for breaking US postal service rules. The company has not provided any elaboration although the Postal Service's law enforcement arm, said the investigation is ongoing, but he declined further comment.
The US Postal Service relies upon e-commerce retailers for business, since a lot of mail has now gone electronic. If Amazon has been short changing the Postal Service on its postage then the Postal Service could be losing millions each year.
