New York family receives hundreds of mysterious Amazon packages they never order


BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — You might not realize just how much you bought while online shopping until those boxes are delivered to your door. But the Amazon packages sent to one New York family weren’t ordered by anyone in their household.

Jillian Cannan said at first she thought her business partner ordered supplies for their studio. Once she looked closer, she realized it was her home address on the box, but her name wasn’t on it.

As the boxes came in droves, Cannan reached out to Amazon to find the rightful owner. The representative told her the individual listed on the address didn’t have an amazon account. Tracking information also led them nowhere.

Inside the boxes are thousands of silicone brackets for inside facemasks. While Cannan estimates about 100 deliveries so far, each box holds more than 1,000 mask inserts.

While Cannan searches for answers, she fears this is not a mistake but a scam. However, if someone has actually sent their deliveries to the wrong house, Cannan wants to know.

“We would love to give them to you. I would love to connect with the rightful owner and give all of these back. Especially if it’s somebody who ordered them that needs them,” she said.

Cannan and her family also say they are open to donating the mask brackets if they are not claimed.
