Something Strange is Afoot at the Circle K

Stuff keeps arriving that we neither ordered nor paid for.  Yesterday it was clothes to our address but some unrecognized name.  Amazon sent them, but said don't return them.  (Probably more expensive to return than they are worth.)

Today's unpurchased goods are a blackhead removing mask gunk and an endoscope that plugs into your cell phone.  Not sent by Amazon.  The small pet colonscopy tool was shipped by an Amazon merchant.  Something is seriously wrong at Amazon.

The endoscope review:
I neither ordered nor paid for this, and I would prefer it had not even arrived.  I discovered that it lacked the adapter to connect it to  my Samsung S4.  When I tried to download the drivers into my Samsung from the specified URL, there was one of those popups that warns you to install a program within 24 hours or your phone will be hopelessly infected.  These are usually either viruses themselves or identity theft programs.  No thanks!  But it had an adapter to USB, so I plugged it into my PC.  Much bigger mistake.  Whatever drivers it installed, made my PC no longer start Windows.  When I unplugged this device, at least I could get to the Windows safe mode startup and restore a previous date's working setup.  It appears that their USB drivers are defective.  A good hour wasted with this trash.  Do not touch it except with a hammer.
