US woman receives 100 Amazon boxes she never ordered

San Francisco: A US woman received more than 100 packages from Amazon that she never ordered, containing about 1,000 headlamps, 800 glue guns, and dozens of binoculars for children.

Cindy Smith, a resident of Virginia state, US, received the boxes that were addressed to someone called Lixiao Zhang.

"It's a lot of packages. I didn't order them and they kept coming from everybody," Smith said.

According to reports, the incident is more likely linked to a kind of vendor scheme, one that involves sellers trying to remove unsold merchandise from Amazon fulfillment centres.

“Sellers in China who need to get their products out of Amazon warehouses pick random addresses and send their unwanted products there. It's just cheaper for them to do so."

Amazon said in a statement that the seller account had violated the company's policy by engaging in "abusive activity" and the account has been closed.

Smith distributed the products in her neighbourhood to prevent them from going to waste.

"All my neighbours got glue guns or headlamps. I gave them to dog shelters, to veterinary clinics," she added.
