Amazon Customer Service puzzled by new vendor scheme |

A Virginia woman received more than 100 Amazon packages she didn’t order, including headlamps, glue guns and binoculars.

Cindy Smith said the boxes recently started showing up at her Prince William County home and soon she had received about 1,000 headlamps, 800 glue guns and dozens of pairs of binoculars.

A lot of people told me I was weird,” Smith told WUSA-TV. “I would drive around with headlamps and glue guns in the car. I gave them to everybody I met.”

The boxes bore Smith’s address, but the name Lixiao Zhang, a name Smith said she had never heard before.

“We initially thought it was a brushing scam,” Smith said, referring to the process of an online vendor creating fake sales of their products in order to artificially inflate their number of 5-star reviews.

Liz Geltman of Washington, D.C., faced a similar situation in May, when her house was quickly filled with packages of children’s sheets she hadn’t ordered.
