Just got a mail from Hermes telling me they have an petrol scooter ( ? ) being delivered
Checked it and its genuine and the tracking number checks out too...
I have NO idea who it is from or what it actually is

Checked all my accounts and no unexpected purchases ..............

Don't fall for it Jaws its that Ogr1 sending you THAT jacket, obviously he couldn't say what was really in the package as even Hermes won't carry offensive items :meparto:

A petrol scooter probably ticks every box for the items Hermes won't take!!!

There was a scam around in 2018 which involved Hermes. If you aren't expecting a deliver best to assume the worst.

If he has whatever he ordered will bear no resemblance to what he receives.
No sh*t Sherlock. :thumbup:
Sadly there are numerous imitators around - I believe they are being referred to as ‘drop box’ sites.

i unwittingly ordered a garden ornament off one and got a pair of fake Gucci sunglasses!

The learning is...always pay by credit card...fortunately I did and the payment was immediately blocked and refunded.

When is it due for delivery John?
It arrived about 20 minutes ago !
I tell you what, I will offer a prize worth £24 to the first person who guesses what I got ( and I will be honest here.. I DID order it but it was so long ago I had forgotten all about it ! )

A signed picture of Ian Porterfield scoring the winning goal in the 1973 FA Cup Final?
