@Rupert the bear , Did you catch this article on BBC news today?

Quote
Even verified reviews might not be all they seem. Some consumers fear their personal data might have been used by sellers to gather fake "verified reviews". Known as "brushing", the scam sees sellers obtain people's name and address to send the goods which they did not purchase. On Amazon, this leaves a paper trail showing the goods had been bought on the site and had been delivered.

The seller then uses the individual's details to set up a new account which it uses to post glowing reviews of its products.

Could that be another explanation perhaps?, and could you even check to see if "you" have left a glowing review for any of the products you received? (would that work?  I have no idea!)

Now that an interesting idea, might look into that

We wait with bated breath for what may come next...  bags I any:
1) tractor
2) hay making equipment
3) field shelter
4) 4x4
5) muck spreader
6) chainsaw
7) garden shredder
8) anything else that might be "useful"!

Have you thought that maybe the courier just fancies you?

Having been seen in the buff by Alison one of our regular couriers ( she poked her head through the shower room window get a signature ) I maybe think the 40year age difference would be a no  :D
Having said that, she's a goth and has some amazing artwork , think Lydia , you have to be old for that one !
