Honest strangers! 

I bought my daughter a Nintendo DS game on ebay.

A fortnight later it hadn't arrived and the seller and I agreed it had got lost in the post and she issued me a refund.

A week later I got a card from DHL saying they had tried to deliver. At that time my parcels were up to date and when I checked online I couldn't see who sent it.

We picked it up today and it was a package from Amazon, which was odd as I don't have any outstanding Amazon orders!

Lo and behold, inside was a small package that had been ripped open and the nintendo game was inside!

There was no note but we deduced that ebay seller had used recycling packaging and although she had scribbled out the company's name who had sent her goods, it appears that Royal Mail had delivered the game to this company instead!

Someone at that company has very kindly sent it on to me!

What a lovely, honest and kind person.

I've repaid the ebay seller, told her what happened and I've emailed the company to pass on my gratitude.

Nutrigroup in Surrye, a big thank you!
