At least they did you a favour by deleting your Amazon account.
I had to do it myself instead. This was 2-3 years back when trying to order some computer equipment, and you realise that 90% of the “sellers” are obvious scams. You try to report it and they don't give a flying.
Now I just buy online from a number of independent shops. The first time I always call them on the phone to see if there's an actual human with whom I would like to do business.
