I purchased a NEW Apple iPad [2 MC987LL/A Tablet (64GB, Wifi + Verizon 3G, White)] on Amazon on 7-31 as a gift (son's/wife). All was fine until last week they went to update service (etc) with Verizon and they were told it was a STOLEN unit! The seller is no longer even ON Amazon as one of their "sellers" . We wrote emails but after week we still have heard nothing. I searched the web for the seller, Wireless Wholesale, but found nothing! We contacted Amazon's corporate office and they say there is nothing they can (or will) do! They said to call our bank and see if they can reverse the purchase, but of course, they said "No". BUT, to my amazement, the clerk who answered the phone had the SAME thing happen to her w/AMAZON, but her IPAD said "stolen" from the beginning. She too couldn't get any responses but when she gave a bad review to the SELLER on Amazon, w/in an hour she had a phone call and her problem was ultimately solved. Of course, our seller is no where to be found, even on Amazon! I did write a negative review on the Ipad page, but Amazon said they couldn't post if for some lame reasons....tried multiple times! Can't post it to the seller since not even there any longer! We called the Apple store as well....nothing good from that either! What recourse do we have. We hit a brick wall everywhere we turn! Can't believe Amazon is such a "nothing" in this saga! I read plenty of stories about how horrible Amazon has been to their sellers, but I would have thought they would care about customer service! NOT! HELP!
