Additional Information

Information provided by the FTC regarding unordered merchandise: If you recieve merchandise that you did not order, you have a legal right to keep it as a free gift. You have no legal obligation to notify the seller, however, it is a good idea to write a letter to the company stating that you didn't order the item and, therefore, you have a legal right to keep it for free. This may discourage the seller from sending you bills or dunning notices, or it may help you clear up an honest error. Send your letter by certified mail. Keep the return receipt and a copy of the letter for your records. If you need help in dealing with unordered merchandise problems, you should start by trying to resolve your dispute with the company. If this doesn't work, contact your state or local consumer protection office, local U.S. Postal Inspector or the Better Business Bureau. The Direct Marketing Association also may be able to help.
