So sorry for any offence caused Womble  :roflanim: the quote marks were only cos I wasn't confident that you had actually patented your Inventions  ;D I still have, in regular use, one of your brilliant salt lick holders which stops it disintegrating in the rain. Just the job and I always enjoy seeing other ideas that you come up with, be they practical or just hilarious. Keep them coming...  :sheep: :sheep:

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).
And by the way of a tease....
The book looks like a good read, just had to take the genny out of the box and look at it , it's the law y'know :innocent:

Is this not some sort of scam. Sure I read this somewhere.

This what I thought it might be but, I now no longer have an Amazon account and the bank block any transaction to Amazon EU and US . As I mentioned before it looks like a 3rd party seller mistakenly using my address.
To be fair Amazon have been very helpful, I have been told what to do "going forward" ( buzz phrase of the month )
As for the latest box it will remain unopened for the next few days kept in a safe place until it is either requested back at the senders expense or abandoned  :innocent:  .

Due to my £800 fully tracked must be signed for in person two day delivery item being sent to Sheffield instead of South Wales and they not finding the name & address there various delivery companies took up the hue & cry looking for it .

  It was correctly addressed inc post code ,  but the barcode reader confused the bar code for SA18 with barcode S18 ..
 As a result it was sent to the Sheffield depot. When it was found to be undeliverable ,  someone made up a new label using the Sheffield post code S18 43B ,  stuck it over the correct one and away it went out for delivery again to somewhere in Sheffield . It was retained at the Sheffield depot because it was not delivered , a note was left in the letterbox saying there was a parcel to collect.

It was only when the person at the address in Sheffield took their driving licence  with them to collect the parcel that their name was found to be different to the one on the address so not handed over.

 I complained bitterly to the main carrier & told the senders what the score was,  for the tracking showed the whole  journey and said it was undelivered delivered .
 Eventually I got a couple of phone calls telling me what the state of play was and when things should happen .

 It did eventually arrive a couple of weeks late .

It seems the auto label readers in their depots can read most things but on a slightly porous paper for a printed label or a slight smudge of the newly printed label can change a thin bar code stripe to be read as a thick one thus your gear goes elsewhere .

I'd check out things with the citizens advice people & your local trading standards office if you get unsolicited deliveries . I certainly wouldn't spend my time or money trying to sort things out .

 It seems that Amazon does this occasionaly too  I got nearly a hundred 300 ml Weck preserving jars , weeks after receiving the right number of the ones I'd ordered.

 It took several weeks  of contacting and replying to Amazons emails before it was sorted ..
In the end  I decided I'd like to pay for the extra jars as we hope to do a lot of pressure canning at home in 2019 . Got given a case of the jars for free as compensation .

 It appears that when I first looked at the jars using my account on my computer  I put them in my cart but had not paid for them , meantime my wife had ordered & paid for them via her account on her computer .

Their computer system then had a brain fart & processed both orders , sent out all manner of confusing  emals saying they are temporarily out of stock , a part order will be sent,  the order will be delivered on  /xx/18 .

 After the second delivery I checked out my shopping cart they were not there ..but I'd not paid for them at that time .
