Someone is repeatedly sending a Pittsburgh woman sex toys from Amazon

Someone is sending a Pittsburgh woman sex toys from Amazon.

And she can't get it to stop.


The woman told The Daily Beast that she is afraid she is being cyberstalked, concerned the sex-toy sender lives nearby and that her and her roommate aren't keen on staying in their apartment anymore.

"It seems so personal," Nikki told The Daily Beast.

The Daily Beast story only used Nikki's first name because she feared blowback from city leaders who are aggressively courting Amazon's second headquarters.

Apparently, Nikki isn't alone. A source at Amazon told The Daily Beast that other random customers are receiving unsolicited sex toys. Amazon won't say who is buying and they don't know why. An Amazon spokesperson told The Daily Beast the sex toys are "part of some bad behavior" the company is investigating.

Amazon customer service was not much help to Nikki. She said she felt ignored and that her concerns weren't taken seriously. She pieced together information on her own and eventually was able to figure out the man's name and state, Missouri. That didn't comfort her as the man's billing address could be different than his residence.

Nikki got the police on the phone with Amazon. That didn't go well.

"Nobody's listening to me," Nikki told the The Daily Beast.

A source at Amazon told The Daily Beast there is no way to stop the packages arriving at Nikki's door. Nikki wished it didn't have to be sex toys.

"I've seen all these other reports now, and all of these other people are saying they got these really cool gadgets," Nikki said.

"I'm like, 'Why didn't I get one of those?'"

At least send her a Bluetooth speaker.
