What do you do if someone delivers a package to your house?

Give them the tracking number on the package, as well as the name and address on the package if it’s different from yours. The company will come and pick up the product within a reasonable time frame.

Who is responsible for courier delivery?
If you bought something from a business to be delivered, it’s the seller’s responsibility to make sure the item is delivered to you.

Is it illegal to keep someone else’s package?
