Like any sane person, I once decided to delete my Amazon account.
The process should be simple, providing an option to delete the account in the profile or account settings tab. But that is obviously not the case here. So I decided to do this in a step by step basis.
Clicked on the link and entered reason to close my account.
No reply, so I decided to wait for a few days before trying to log in.
Waited for 9 days and send another request to close the account.
Greeted with another mail saying that I have two accounts with same email id (HOW? They don’t even allow one to create another account with the same email!)
Told them I want to delete all accounts by clicking on the link.
Same replay as #10
Told them again to close all accounts, and asked them reason for a separate de-registration request for mobile number.
Got Another email telling me that I need to de-register my number before closing the account (WTF? That’s not what they told me in any of the mails above)
Called customer care and explained the situation, asked them to de-register the number and delete the account.
Confused customer care told me that number will be de-registered after closing the account. I asked them to check the mail chain and de-register the number as per the latest mail I got.
Call transferred to someone who talks like they lost interest in their life, his voice continuously broke, and was not clear what he was saying. I just asked him to delete the account and de-register the number. (Had to say it three times to him in the call).
Received an OTP through the insecure SMS which I have to tell him so that he can proceed.
Waited for a day and replied to the mail to confirm account deletion process.
Got a reply to do the process mentioned in previous mails… :/
I replied saying that I have already done the process multiple times and I need a confirmation on the status of request.
No reply next day.
No reply for two more days.
I tried to “Login”, it told me that “Account already exists” (WHAT?)
Tried the login again and this time it said “Account doesn’t exist”.
I’m still waiting for the confirmation of account deletion.
