The Charlotte Better Business Bureau is now warning Charlotte residents to be wary of mystery packages that are being left on doorsteps around our city.
BBB President Tom Bartholomy told Fox Charlotte that several packages have been turned into the agency from Charlotte residents who said they did not order them and they didn’t know who sent them.
Inside each of the packages was 1 single face mask.
Bartholomy said residents who receive the mask should not wear them and should either throw them away or turn them in to the BBB.
He said the packages are likely part of a “brushing scam”, whereby companies find names and addresses, send them an inexpensive product, then leave a positive review of the product on Amazon or Alibaba on behalf of that person.
Have you ever received a mystery package from an unknown sender?
