|Scam watch: a case of ‘mistaken’ delivery|
An unnamed parcel from an online retailer was delivered to Phil’s home address, containing a games console that he’d never ordered. Shortly after, a man in a high-vis jacket, featuring a courier logo, knocked at the door.
He asked if Phil had just received something that wasn’t his, saying that there’d been a mistake. Because Phil had admitted that he hadn’t ordered it, he reluctantly handed the parcel over. He then contacted the retailer, only to be told that a store account had been opened in his name and had been used to make the order.
