4. Check with your banks, credit card accounts, and Amazon ASAP

My mother received a package with her name on it about a year ago, a package she never ordered (it was a cheap ring, worth a little under $100). Thatís how she and my father found out they were victims of identity theft and had fraudulent charges on their credit cards. Their banks took care of it all after they were alerted and explained the packages ordered are used in a gift card scam. The fraudsters somehow claim the package was never received and get issued gift cards as refunds, which they then sell to gift card trade sites.

It may a simple mistake in your case, but itís better to be safe than sorry.
