I have gotten two packages of chocolate, on singular pair of socks from Amazon in the last two weeks. I have ask the few people I know who might do something like that, and the strongly denied having anything to do with it.
There is no name, but a QR code in one of the boxes. but is it a scam?, I don’t really wanna check it.
Today allegedly a package containing a triptych and a box of band aids was delivered. Instead I got a few hundred feet of fancy fishing line in clear and dayglow yellow and some other small fishing line connectors (??) I have no idea how they’d be used. I think my package was “delivered” to the UPS depot in a nearby city because the tracking info suggests it was delivered to their office.
What this fishing stuff is I can’t imagine. My name is on it twice, plus my correct address so it wasn’t meant for a neighbor like last week. I haven’t looked up fishing gear so it’s not a browsing related gift from Amazon or a company. And I cannot imagine that someone sent it to me as a Christmas gift unless it’s meant to hook up something that is yet to arrive.
I don’t know, but that reminds me, I haven’t gotten anything from Maker’s Mark in a couple of years.
(Many years ago my wife was visiting her mother in southern Indiana and they went on a tour of the Maker’s Mark distillery where she signed me up as a “Maker’s Mark Ambassador”; every year since I’ve gotten some little item in the mail from them for Christmas, but I’ve not received anything the past two years.)
Last holiday season I ordered from Amazon some age appropriate books and toys to be sent to a 1 year old relative.
A few weeks later the dad called to thank me for the box of multiple flashlights, but didn’t think it was appropriate for a baby. Weird, but OK…maybe the family could use the flashlights?
Nope - it was 10 separate boxes of flashlights that attach to a gun! (sorry, unsure of technical term). Looking it up they were going for over $100 each on Amazon. There was even a gift note inside the box that this was a present from Aunt Wallet.
I told him to perhaps sell them, or even just return them to Amazon, but as far as I know they’re still sitting in his garage.
