I was on the phone when the postie arrived with a signed-for package. I was expecting an envelope from my brother, and though I was surprised by the shape and bubble wrap, I simply signed and took the package and continued with my call. After the call I looked at the sender details - a woman in India. I’ve not ordered anything online, from anywhere, let alone India. The parcel remains unopened. It was perfectly addressed to me. I guess I could return it…
I believe I’ve read somewhere about this type of “scam” but now I can’t find anything about it. Can anyone shed any light? What does this sender hope to gain by posting something to me? Apart from confirmation of delivery and that my name and address are correct? How can this be used against me?
That’s brilliant, thank you Griffin36 for such a quick reply. Although the package isn’t marked as coming from Amazon, it certainly sounds as if it could be this type of scam. I’ll change my PW on Amazon now. I wonder what other wonderful gifts I will now receive…? Or if there’s some other risk, given it’s not an Amazon delivery.
Yes, I enjoy he natter, only they keep trying to open their bibles and take the words literally. All I can do not to disagree with them politely. I really am not understanding the ‘witness’ thing but they do seem very sincere and good ladies.
Ordered Saturday and delivered Sunday, in France?
I was amazed when in England a few weeks ago when our daughter did exactly that with tge delivery arriving at 8pm Sunday evening.
Uk Prime is delivery the next day or even the same day but France Prime is 2 days, at least in rural parts.
Usually true that Prime takes 2 days. Possibly because we are only 1/2 drive from Avignon. I was surprised! Not only by a Sunday delivery but the van having enough petrol. I gave a 5* review for the deliverer. I know they are stressed.
I always give them good reviews. There’s some jobsworth sitting comfortably at a desk somewhere checking their ratings. Anyway, we tend to get the same person delivering and she is great. Though Amazon marketplace vendors often use Chronopost too.
