    Odd

    Have any of you gotten something in the mail you didn't order ( actually would have never ordered ) It was addressed properly, name spelled correctly and with no packing slip? It was two pair of Gucci socks. If they aren't fake, they are very expensive and can not imagine someone sending me something like this. I guess I saw the China return address and I feel strange about it. I have no idea how to return them. Your probably thinking I am being paranoid about this maybe I am.

    You just became the newest member of a big mystery. I heard about it a while back.

      here is another take on the same thing.......good grief! it isn't one thing, its another.
      Have you heard of an Amazon package scam called 'brushing'? It involves having random packages you didn't order from Amazon show up at your door.

        If they are from China, they are not the real deal. I received an amazon package with a plastic baby bathtub. I just donated it.

          Not the real deal? What does that mean, it's two different scams.

          I think she means that they aren't Gucci. If from China, most likely not

        If I ever receive a gift from China -- seeds or otherwise -- it's going in the trash unopened. Who know what it could be infected with.

          You are supposed to report this to your local post office. Ours asks that we touch the package/letter as little as possible and let them take it from there. And never open it.

            I would toss it out quickly. odd items in the mail from ?? would not be welcome in my house. mail and emails and posts unsolicited are irritating to say the least.

              This made me grin. I got a letter from a Jehovha witness yesterday. (don't get me wrong anyone, my BIL is one) I guess instead of stopping by they are sending out letters.

            I guess so. in Colorado a couple always stopped by our house to talk to my husband. When he passed away, they came by to talk to me. mostly about anything, not all religion. Nice people! These days we must get contact with people in safer ways.... 😊

              My son n law told me I should turn it in to the police. He read an article that said the police get it to the proper person that can use the address to try and track where these unordered packages are coming from and figure out why. Well, I did call the police. The young guy was very polite but said all I can do is throw it in the trash! I said ok fine with me and he threw it in my trash can. I felt so much like an overly concerned wacky old woman that bothered the police for no reason. My son and son n law both told me they thought I did the right thing.

                That has been happening in Canada as well, mostly seeds were being reported. We were advised to contact the Post Office, and I beleive the Canadian Food Inspection Agency posted a warning, as these could be invasive species. Anything coming to us without request is disposed of.

                We recently receive a package from China, our address but incorrect name. It said t-shirt. I looked up the name and found someone on our street with that name. I called them -- turns out whoever sent it transposed 2 numbers. The woman was so grateful we called, as it was a special t-shirt she ordered for her daughter. I guess we are so paranoid these days, it almost made me laugh. Not everything from China is bad, really.

                Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

                Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.

                  Same here in Wisconsin. The Wis. Dept of Natural Resources is asking ppl to NOT open pkg and if seeds, send to them. There is some concern about seeds being invasive species. I don't personally know of anyone getting these so idk how big of a problem it is.
