New York woman receives hundreds of Amazon packages that she never ordered
Imagine hundreds of online orders arriving at your home that you have never ordered before. Now imagine that the hundreds of packets never stop coming. This was the story recently caught up with a woman from upstate New York when hundreds of Amazon orders flooded her home. NBC says some packages have arrived on pallets in huge delivery trucks. But why did they go to her address if she didn’t order it?
NBC says the Buffalo woman runs her own business from home and at first thought her business associate ordered all the boxes. She opened some of the boxes and found thousands and thousands of silicone face mask frames.
When I started receiving the packages I called Amazon to try to return them but they explained that they are officially mine as they were being delivered to my home.
Well, that’s sure to be a nuisance. Repeated calls to Amazon representatives didn’t seem to help. Amazon said the orders were theirs and that was final. The poor woman ever took her story to Facebook, which attracted considerable local attention. Eventually after further research, Amazon admitted there was a bug and stopped deliveries. However, they did not come back to pick up all of the boxes.
But now, with all these frames, the woman and her children thought they could bring in the pieces as part of a do-it-yourself design competition for other children in children’s hospitals. Sounds great, doesn’t it? All she needed was a few extra supplies to complete the masks, so she reached out to Amazon to see if they would donate the remaining pieces. Amazon said no. At this point, the woman is saddened that she is still trying to negotiate with her agents to make this a closed deal.
What is worse? Are you receiving a lot of things in the mail that you didn’t order or receiving things that you didn’t receive? Earlier this week we reported on a New York state postal worker who admitted he had pissed his mail in hopes of finding gift cards and other rewards. Guess he’s keeping his package (s) in his pants.
