Amazon.com sent me a last fuck you for bothering to be an affiliate for Amazon in Illinois:
Dear Former Amazon Associate,
We have just sent you a payment for the amount of USD 5.40 for the remaining advertising fees less adjustments and fees on your recently closed account. This payment also includes any credit balance carried forward from previous payment periods.
If your billing address is in the U.S. and you selected payment by check, we will deduct a $15 processing fee from the check we send. (This charge does not apply to Associates with non-U.S. billing addresses, as direct deposit is not available to them.)
$5.40 – $15 = Fuck You for helping us sell our goods.
Gee thanks. Luckily, I recently jumped through all the hoops to give Amazon.com access to direct deposit, or else I’d really be pissed off. I truly hope that action is taken on a federal level to force Amazon.com to pay sales taxes, retroactively, so Jeff Bezos can choke a bit.
