Over the holidays Shopping online was insane, eBay, Amazon Prime, UPS, Fed Ex had trouble keeping up with all the packages. Well now that things have calmed down a bit, have you recently received a package and thought to yourself weird I didn’t order that? Well turns out is a scam
The scam works like this: Third-party sellers on big apps like Amazon and eBay pay people to write fake reviews on items they are selling. To do this, they need it to look like a legit transaction took place.
To do this, they find people’s info online, and they will send out items to them randomly. A tracking number is created, and they can use that to create a review.
The person who receives the package doesn’t get charged, and their account isn’t hacked. But it is weird for them to get a random package.
