Couple Receives Mystery Amazon Packages

February 08, 2018 - 9:56 am

(KMOX) - Free is not always all it's cracked up to be.

Mike and Kelly Galavin of Acton, Mass., say it was fun at first -- getting mystery packages from Amazon that they hadn't ordered, one or two a week, mostly low-priced gizmos, phone chargers and the like, but they just kept coming.

Amazon says the items had been paid for with a gift card, no sender's name.

It also says it's investigating a number of such cases it believes are linked to sellers who use the anonymous sales to manipulate customer reviews.
