LAST year, a woman was mysteriously sent home over 15 pairs of “really cheesy” boots.
Simone Boutet said after the first couple inexplicably first showed up, she has since started anticipating their repeated arrival.
When speaking to WLS TVBoutet called the shoes “really funny”.
“And they’re really, really, really cheesy,” she added.
However, when she tried to ship the first pair back to UPS, they ended up right back at her house.
“I explained the whole thing to her and she understood,” says Boutet, explaining her attempts to return the items.
“And so she took them back and then about four days later they came back to me in the mail.”
After that, Boutet says, she found more shoes on her doorstep.
She shared a photo of her shoes in a Facebook postconcluding that the sales are likely to come from Amazon.
“I tried and tried to get her [UPS] to cut it out, but this error sticks and I am doomed to this fate forever. Rerouting them is hopeless,” she wrote.
According to UPS, the failed deliveries were due to a “typographical error,” which says they are working with the original seller to correct the return labels.
However, the United States Postal Service [USPS]warned of “brush fraud” on your website, write that unsolicited deliveries could be more dangerous than we think.
“Even though it looks like a victimless crime – you got some free stuff after all – the reality is that your personal information could have been compromised,” the USPS wrote.
“Often, scammers obtain personal data in a nefarious and malicious manner and use it in the future in a variety of scams and other illegal activities.”
Amazon is currently addressing the “highly unusual situation,” a representative said.
“We have reached out to our customer to apologize for this inconvenience associated with a business selling on our website and have also asked the shoe seller to make the appropriate corrections on their part,” the representative said.
Boutet hopes she will never find a pair of shoes on her doorstep again.
“I can’t stop and it’s really funny because of the shoes themselves, they’re just hilariously not my style,” she said. “And it just doesn’t stop. It’s absurd.”
