A little over a week ago, I received a package from Amazon. There’s nothing unusual about receiving a package from Amazon, but in this case, the return address wasn’t specifically from Amazon. It arrived in a white padded envelope. From the outside, it wasn’t obvious the package was from Amazon, but I recieve many packages from Amazon via third party vendors. I didn’t think much of this until I opened the package and discovered….this:
A small slip of paper was also inside the envelope with Amazon.com and a large barcode on it. There’s an Amazon Remit to: address. A vendor return section with what appears to be information related to the item. A Shipped from address and a shipping address (my home address). Apparently, it’s an Amazon vendor doing an overstock return. My husband and I both immediately understand how this item could easily be an overstock. What we can’t understand is how my name and home address came out as the shipping address for this item.
Since I didn’t order it, I have no way of contacting Amazon to figure out what to do about it. Amazon does a lot of things very well, but providing a way to contact them about things like this is not one of them. I just hope my home has not become the dumping ground address for stuff like this.
