Everyday a school day.
I had contact from Amazon today, and now I know what and how this has all come about.

Have you ever bought something from eBay or other seller  and the find your order arrives from Amazon ?
Well it so happens that say for example an eBay seller offers something at price £x  , some one buys it through the Ebay system and pays the seller.
If fact the seller doesn't physically have the item but has the time ( and usually Prime membership to cover delivery costs) to find and purchase the said item at price £<x and then has it sent direct from Amazon to the eBay purchaser.
 So Amazon dispatch to the address given by the eBay seller, simple yes  ? No , not when the eBay seller pastes my details into the Amazon delivery address field ( because he is  a unfamiliar with his software or other reason  )
Amazon now tell me that they have contacted the eBay merchant , but, and a big but , I may still receive shipments.  I have the option to contact the eBay merchant and return the goods ,but and I am sure this will amuse some of you.



Amazon cannot pass on the details of the eBay merchant , nor my details to the eBayer (methinks he may have them anyway ) "due to data protection regulations"   :roflanim:
 And if you think I am going to waste my valuable retirement trying to work out the identity of the unfortunate eBayer ...............  :innocent:



Looks like Christmas is sorted

All this makes sense... so eBayer is likely getting response from customers of "not received item"... now once or twice you could believe it was missing in transit but frequent and quality items - either has more money than sense or should be investigating "where" the item was shipped and contacting the courier... so the onus is on seller/shipper to realise they've sent to wrong address and either contact you (presumably by mail as they have your postal address but may not remember your eBay name) and ask for return or write it all off.  It's obviously someone you've bought something from at some point... but if you're a regular eBayer then it's not worth the hassle to work out who - it's their responsibility not yours!

Ah ha! That does make sense (in our mad world!).
eBay account is in my name, husband runs the Amazon prime show. For a birthday I found him a present at x price on Amazon and slightly more expensive on eBay, but purchased from eBay so that there would be no 'paper trail' and I'd know not to open in front of him.
Few days later, it arrived, "Something from Amazon?" "Must be for the kids or from my mum?"  he opened it. Surprise ruined.
Felt like such an idiot for paying extra money to have item arrive a day later than it otherwise would have.

Just list everything you get on here and we'll run an auction to top up your pension!  :roflanim:

 :thinking:  so I'm guessing there is another thread somewhere entitled  'where did my e-bay purchase go?'   :thinking:    :roflanim:

A pack of A5 graph paper, a suitcase generator,a partridge in a pear tree  a hard back book "Fight to the Finish by Allan Mallinson" on the first world war month by month,and a small bottle of " Stayput" body glue. that'll be handy to put myself back together  :thumbsup: 

Wish someone would order a pair of xxl knees with fitting kit !

Seriously, a suitcase generator!?  Keep hold of that for sure!!

(Unless it's a device for generating suitcases. But then again, that could be pretty useful too).

Oh, I feel as though I've let you down now, @Oopsiboughtasheep , but I'm mortally offended to see the word 'inventions' with quote marks around it :roflanim: . I haven't actually invented anything since the whizz bang feral cat trap almost a year ago  :-[ . The reason for this is that I'm flat out at work at the moment. We're trying to invent / develop a £60,000,000 contraption which, if it works, will change the way we feed humanity. So that's taken priority over cat traps and similar this year  ;D .


My homemade poultry drinker blog post still gets a few thousand hits a month from all over the world, so I do wonder how many of those people have made by now  :) . I'm also working on designs for a brick s**t duck house, so watch this space!
