I just got a box full of motherboards (6 to be exact) and it was supposed to have been shipped to another location. I'm obviously going to make sure the correct owner gets it, but I remember hearing something to the extent that I'm not legally bound to do so. Can anyone confirm? (This scares me because what if someone gets my stuff, I feel they legally should have to return it to me..)

Thanks!

Did it have your name on it? If not, why did you open it?

If it did have your name on it...then...

Return it to the shipping company. Tell them it was shipped to the wrong address, and they'll take it from there.

you opened it? WTF man didn't you read who it was adressed to?


NO you can NOT keep it. that law was there to keep someone from shipping you something then saying you owe them money. NOT to cover a mistake.

Simmer down, dumbass.. you don't know the situation.. I was expecting exactly 6 packages, 4 laptops, software for the laptops, and package with carepacks for the laptops. I got 6 packages that all looked the same. I openened all of them, only to then realize that one wasn't mine. I never asked if it was OK to keep the wrongly shipped package. Maybe you should learn how to read the original post..

The package doesn't have a name, just a business address.. I've called the business explaining that I had their package and they're just down the street.. I'll let them deal with the shipper if they care so much.

You asked if you were legally bounded to return the package, he answered your question, you could of just said thanks instead of responding like a bitch.

"obviously going to make sure the correct owner gets it, but I remember hearing something to the extent that I'm not legally bound to do so. Can anyone confirm"

sure looks like you are looking fora reason to keep them. Also you asked a quesiton i answered it. You can not keep the damn package. hell you can't open it either bu thtats a little late.


at least you called the company. you should also call the shipper and tell them you have the package.

Feel free to assume what you want.. If I would have known it was to someone else, I wouldn't have opened it.. I don't want their stuff, I wouldn't want it if it was cold, hard cash. I think it's nice that you presume to know what I think and want. I was asking looking at the perspective if I was in the scenario the intended recipient is in.

I was not being bitchy. I am suprissed that someone would open a package NOT addressed to them (or to your address).

you asked if you had ot return it. i gave you a answer. NO you can not keep it. the law is for if a place sends you a package then wants you to pay for it. NOT protection to keep a package on a delivery mistake.

I got 2 pallet loads of Cell phone adapters, cases, headsets, etc, all brand new. Probably plenty of street value, but.....

I was expecting a Sun V880 and some Cisco gear.
