Amazon.com is target of postal probe

February 05, 2009|Times Wire Reports

Amazon.com Inc. is being investigated by the U.S. Postal Service, the online retailer disclosed in the annual report it recently filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Seattle-based Amazon said it learned in January that postal inspectors were investigating the company's "compliance with postal service rules." The company said it was cooperating, but provided no elaboration.

Peter Rendina, an inspector in the postal service's law enforcement arm, said the investigation was ongoing, but he declined to comment further.
