In recent days, several cases of delivery of various items instead of a video game console have been reported in the UK.
In recent days, Internet users in the UK, who bought Play Station 5 (PS5) on Amazon, report on social media that they were “cheated” by a virtual store after receiving various unsolicited objects instead of the console.
This is the case of journalist and TV presenter Becks April May, who claims to have received a message that her order could not be delivered; however, a few hours later it arrived. To his surprise, he found that the package he received contained a symbol instead of the ordered console electric fryer.
Another buyer claimed to have received the bag 5 kilograms of rice, although the box actually contained a large bag of bulgur, a derivative of wheat, which is widely used in Middle Eastern cuisine. “When I opened Play Station 5, which I ordered from Amazon, I found it! Someone replaced it with rice!” – you can read in his Twitter post.
Similarly, a Twitter user identified as Sam Felts received electric fryer in a package that, according to the complaint, was opened at some point before delivery. Another scammer sarcastically thanked the virtual store for the delivery jars of dog food.
Exactly the same thing happened to me, I got a George Forman grill! It looks like the box was once opened as well. Now I can’t get a replacement because there are no stocks anywhere in the UK, although I ordered it 2 months before! pic.twitter.com/Cmg3BzVhvg
