I just got a call from a courier to make arrangements to deliver a TV to my home address. The courier had my contact details completely correct - name, address, cellphone number. The only problem is, I'm not expecting a TV. The courier mentioned it was sent by Trustpower, presumably because I had signed up (I haven't). So I rang Trustpower to find out what's going on, and they don't know either. They're going to look into it - they do have a person with a similar name, but completely different address details - and get back to me, but it's very weird. How would they get my contact details in the first place to mix up with their customer? I've never been a Trustpower customer, nor have I signed up with them, so for them to get my contact details, especially my cellphone number, is the weirdest thing. And it's not like it's a slight transposition of data - there's nothing similar between our contact details, other than the name.
I've asked the courier to hold fire until I hear back from Trustpower - I wouldn't say no to a free TV! - but really don't want to deprive someone of their rightfully deserved TV, or have to deal with a grumpy company who wants their erroneously delivered TV back!
