Default Someone messed up big time....

So I'm sitting at the house today the door bell rings. As I opened the door I watched UPS drive off and a huge box on my front porch. Thinking nothing of it because my wife orders enough stuff online I swear she keeps amazon in business I brush it off move the box inside and go about my day. When she got home I mentioned the box to her which she takes a look at and ask why I told her when it had my name on it. Puzzled I go look at the box and sure enough its addressed to me from scentlok. I ordered some stuff a few weeks ago but had already received my stuff so confusing set in. As I opened it up I was thinking I must have won some sweepstakes that I didnt know about. There were 43 items totaling over 3100 without tax. Then my wife says are you sure you didnt order this. That's when my heart sank. I have a 5 year old daughter that loves playing on daddy's phone and I just knew she drained my hunting account playing with my phone. After looking at my accounts then the house account I confirmed noone on my end ordered it. So here I am looking at all this cool gear knowing how much it would be cool to keep it I decided that I would rather have good karma on my side than guilt. I found the order slip inside the box and called the nice gentleman from scentlok who was very appreciative. Sounds like they are sending me a gift package for honesty and tomorrow I drop the box back off at the UPS store for the actual location it should've been sent to. Starting monday I have a week of vacation so hopefully the good karma will send me a mature buck.

Thanks for sharing. Helps all of us who care continue to do so. My wife and yours must be related. I tell Amazon drivers if they know who it is in my home who has money for constant packages? They laugh and know me too well. I bought a bed frame from Walmart. They lost it! So I canceled, got credit and bought one from Amazon. Next day Fed Ex delivers the lost one. I return it via US Postal as Wally directed. Two days it comes again. I drive to closest store and return it. They were thouroughly confused and I think wished I would have just kept it. It comes again via US Mail and my sweet mail lady says no more hauling this thing. I go in person again and told Wally if it it returns it goes on Craigslist. It finally ended. I got nothing for the trouble but know I did the right thing and they tried to rectify at least. Keep on honesty, it will bless you if nothing other than peace in your soul!

There is no right way to do a wrong thing - stepping up and sending the items back was for sure the right thing to do -

cashier gives you change and you realize it is way too much? Return the money

Nothing better than laying your head down at night knowing you did the right thing - priceless

I had something like that happen to me years ago. Never figured it out. A customer ordered parts and had them sent to me, for his car. I ordered parts from the same company many times. So the customer's order comes in, I get started on his car. Then a couple days later another box comes in from the same company, addressed to me. I open it, find there is a complete set of seat covers, basically original factory style seat covers, the correct color, style for my car. Basically there are hatchbacks, coupes and convertibes, then base LX interior, then LX high back seats and then GT seats, in both tweed and leather. Of all of the choices, they sent the color, material, type of seat for a hatch, for my car. I scratched my head for a while, because those seat covers would not be correct for the customer's car, his car had black interior, it was a coupe and had aftermarket seats also.
I still called the customer and asked if he had ordered them and had them sent to me. He said no, he knew nothing about the seat covers. He and I both called the company that had sent them, they did not charge the customer or me for the seat covers, nor could they explain who ordered them and why I got them. Then they did not want the seat covers back. Those seat covers are still a mystery to this day.
