"Amazon, on the other hand, seemed to be having a little more success as Which? noted that some inflated items were taken down during the investigation period."

I have been unable to buy most things on amazon for about 5 years now. Why? Simple.

The listings for say, "a computer mouse" have 5 thousand of the same mouse listed, in 5 thousand different colours/patterns. So if I don't want that exact mouse? I have to search specifically the model I want. Oh, I can try "Laptop case" and also get thousands of the same case listed. So actually *searching* for anything non-specific is impossible to filter out the spam listings. I have to find a product I want else where, then price compare to Amazon.
