UPS Sends Me $90,000 in iPod Nanos

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Another update: Apple contacted UPS, so just now UPS corporate called and a very nice woman said that the $25 gift card was simply all that the person who gave it to me was authorized to do (I guess they have free reign to give those out), but she wanted to buy me an iPod (Don't know if it's a Nano or what, but it's not important) and $250 iTunes gift card from my local Best Buy.

That seems pretty reasonable

That's good to hear. I'd be happy getting that for doing the right thing.

For those wondering, I am contacting people to get it straightened out and no, I'm not "keeping" any of them, I'm giving it back to them as it was given to me, with the box slightly opened, because I thought it was for me.

 

Darn, you could've used them to make an epic iPad giveaway here on LinusTechTips... You know, since Apple makes $182,789,000,000 a year, and some other people don't have the luck of being able to afford expensive stuff.

 

Or you could've donated all that money to charity.

 

Such a shame you decided to help the richest people in the world and forgot about the poor ones.

They're a rich company because they worked for it. Steve and co didn't get given the money for their company. I hate Apple as a company but you can not take it away from them; they've done well.

I've been to bookings twice here, sued the shit out of the NYPD .Sued my landlord because she said I cant smoke in the building staircase; whipped out a 30 page 2002 NYC smoking act PDF, and told her that until she does what's stated int he document I can smoke here and even if she does, until my lease is over I still can smoke in the hallway [fuck the people who complain].

 

Even got free rent for a few months because of her "harassment".

 

I don't mind the ride considering I'll be getting a fat settlement check afterwards. (My parents pay monthly for an awesome lawfirm)

 

I'm 21, 4.0 GPA, columbia, go to school for free, get 5k/semester cash for keeping my GPA (TY tax payers), and sue the shit out of people for fun.

 

Trust me, if you were a cop in texas, I can see why you're not one now.

 

Also NYC > United States. What goes on in texas does not go on in NYC; we're Superior to every state and city.

 

Also doesn't matter what state you're in; the the mail thing is a federal statute, it's sent to him, so it's his; doesn't matter if they made a mistake.

 

I doubt you where even part of a police department, you probably wore a diarrhea green shirt in a sheriffs office in a small town in the middle of nowhere that nobody knows the name of.

I always wondered why can sue someone for almost no reason like that? In almost every european country if you try to sue someone for obliviously no real reason it's unlikely to go to court but if it is you'd probably get some serious scolding from the judge for wasting his/her time, you'd have to pay the costs of the lawsuit and sometimes pay some fine for good measure.

Anyone I know would have kept them without a word, that's some honesty you've got there.

I don't see how keeping the items could be legal anywhere. What the fluff, it's obvious it was a mistake and it's obvious those goods where meant for someone else and were owned by someone else. If I tried to tell a judge "well I got them in the mail so they're mine now" he'd be like "don't bs me, it was a mistake and there's no way you didn't realise it", and that means bad faith, and that means theft, and that means jail.
