    Default A weird thing happened - still haven't figured it

    A couple of weeks ago, my wife ordered one of those countertop bread machines from a shopping channel. She received it, and has been quite happy using it. ( Here is where it gets weird - ) Today, our UPS route driver stopped by with a pre-printed return form for that exact bread machine, from Home Depot. She did not order it from them, and so far, I cannot explain how Home Depot sent the return form, nor how they were made aware that someone at my address wanted to return a bread machine to a place from which it was never ordered.

    Sounds like some kind of scam. Is that HD form legit? Perhaps getting you to send your purchase to a fake address, not Home Depot. A new form of porch pirate, is my take.

    This is the second addressd-related odd thing Iíve heard of this week. Too close to ID theft for my comfort.

    I woke up one morning with $25,000 charged to my name, $5,000 per merchant, for new credit cards. Then off to the races for 3 years.

    Psa-freeze your credit with all 4 credit agencies. No downside.

    I am not sure of the form, Bill , it is now in our 'curious' file. . . It WAS delivered by our regular UPS route driver, driving his usual UPS truck....

    maybe you ordered it on shopping channel, but Home Depot shipped it?

    It is obviously a mistake. Return this like-new machine to me, instead. I know what to do with it.

    There are two kinds of boaters: those who have run aground, and those who lie about it.

    Maybe HD has a working relationship with the Shopping Channel? With Amazon for instance your orders often come from a 3rd party

    This is not only the obvious, but most likely the correct answer.
