Anyone have experience with this? I think this has happened to me.
I received two packages yesterday from Amazon of things I never ordered, nor were they on my account as orders.
It was earbuds, an LED party light, a garment steamer, and a shower mirror. The items were all Amazon Prime shipped third party.
I contacted Amazon and they said there was another account under my name and billing/shipping address (we deduced this because the phone number and credit card listed on the other account were not mine)]. They told me they would investigate and that I could just keep the packages.
I already checked my credit and theres no new credit cards / lines opened, but it is worrying that someone made a falsified account under my name and address. (and apparently has a credit card under my name and address - though not social so at least theres that)
oh and for those that dont know - I guess the idea behind brushing is people (usually overseas) want to bump up their main account's items by leaving them a ton of positive reviews. So what they do is make rogue accounts (with real names/addresses) and they then buy those items (from their main account) and ship them to you, and in exchange they can leave positive reviews for each item they 'bought'. But thats the thing since shipping is only their prime fee and the item theyre buying is from themselves, and the items I guess are really cheap to manufacture, they are essentially buying reviews for ~$1 a piece.
Anyone else have this happen to them? Any more I should / could do?
