Order the PlayStation 5 from Amazon and receive bags of food and unsolicited itemsNov 222020
Several cases of delivery of various objects instead of the video game console have been reported in recent days in the United Kingdom.
In recent days, Internet users in the United Kingdom who bought the Play Station 5 (PS5) on Amazon have reported on social networks having been "scammed" by the virtual store after receiving different unsolicited objects instead of the console.
This is the case of the journalist and television presenter Bex April May, who claims to have received a notification that her order could not be delivered; however, hours later it arrived. To her surprise, she discovered that the package she received, instead of the console she had ordered, contained an electric deep fryer.
Happy #PS5 day everyone. Tried to document our one’s unveiling, but Amazon have tricked us with an unsolicited air fryer instead (after giving delivery password). Anyone else had this problem today? pic.twitter.com/99IUSzSJUU— Bex April May (@bexlectric) November 19, 2020
Another buyer claimed to have received a 5 kilogram bag of rice, although the box actually contained a large bag of bulgur, a derivative of wheat widely used in Middle Eastern cuisine. "When I opened the Play Station 5 that I ordered from Amazon I found this! Someone has replaced it with rice!", You can read in his Twitter entry.
Similarly, a Twitter user identified as Sam Felts received an electric fryer in a package that he allegedly had been opened at some point before being delivered. Also, another of the scammed people sarcastically thanked the virtual store for having delivered cans of dog food.
