Amazon parcel scam targets woman eight months after her death

A man who received an unsolicited parcel from Amazon addressed to his wife eight months after her death says he is frustrated by the retail giant's response. David Henderson, from West Sussex, said Amazon told him a new account had been set up using Anna Henderson's name and address. After being contacted by the BBC, Amazon apologised and said it had contacted Mr Henderson to discuss the situation in more depth. "At the end of the day, they can wash their hands of it but an Amazon Prime package was delivered to my dead wife." A spokeswoman for Amazon said: "Third-party sellers are prohibited from sending unsolicited packages to customers and we take action on those who violate our policies, including withholding payments, suspending or removing selling privileges, or working with law enforcement. We've taken action on the account in question."
