(RNN) – Amazon sent out scads of emails to people who are not expecting babies telling them that somebody had bought them a gift off their baby registry.
The email looked like a phishing attack with a generic photo of a crawling baby and beginning with the impersonal salutation: “Hello, Amazon Customer.”
It was actually from Amazon, but only because of a computer glitch. The company responded with a canned statement apologizing for any confusion that may have been caused by the error.
It did spawn a few hilarious email responses, though.
Amazon just informed me that someone has purchased a gift from my baby registry. My baby is 21, and hopes it's a keg.— Karen Tumulty (@ktumulty) September 19, 2017
