So, few days ago, this new seller on Amazon India offered a mechanical keyboard at a pretty low price.
Since, it looked like a mistake, I placed an order using cash on delivery.
Two days ago, Amazon canceled that order on expected lines saying seller did not accept the order.
Today, I get a text from Delhivery that the order is on way to my place and I should be ready with the cash.
Order does not even appear in Amazon backend right now though I have the mails confirming that the order was indeed canceled.

I can only assume that the package is empty and since the order is no longer registered with Amazon, I would have no way to get a refund. Especially considering it is not even Amazon fulfilled.

Interesting shit.

yep one of scam. List product at low price. cancel cod order and deliver empty carton and get cash.
Do report the seller to amazon.
Though they are scamming for such low price also.

they don't let you. if the package was empty, he would not have taken it back. as soon as the package is open, it becomes my headache.

you could have opened the package infront of him while on video. could have stop the spread this kind off shit

but then you could also have not wanted to deal with this shit. so yeah, its not your fault for not wanting additional headaches

I have so many times returned broken coffee mugs without paying them a penny for cod orders.they just call their backend and I had to tell them that the delivery guy broke em in transit.
Plus in your case, technically the order is cancelled so how are they even delivering it.
It's their loss and you are in no ways liable for that?

i would have recorded the opening of the box if amazon had the delivery in its record.
this delivery did not exist for amazon after it was cancelled.
i pinged amazon chat support. the lady on the other side was pretty sure that the package would not arrive at all.
but her eventual response was that i should reject the package if i had no requirement for it.
stupidity all around.

there were two issues.
first the payment was cod.
second, even if the device existed... but it was dead on arrival or had other issues, i would have been stuck with it. no return/exchange. and if the package did not arrive with an invoice, no warranty either.

just did not want to deal with all this mess.
