How can they make the review in my name?  Does this mean there is a duplicate account out there with my legal name and shipping address?  Wouldn't it be a review from their account, since they ordered it?  I'd be able to look at the item and see what reviews there are and could report if I saw my name.

Why is it called brushing?

Iím not an etymologist. Itís called brushing because thatís what itís called. Google it.
If they get a hold of your name they use it to make an account with your name and address and they send crap and then use that account to review this crap. The review wonít necessarily have your name on it.

Years after this has started happening Amazon still wonít tell you that brushing scams are very common. And they wonít do anything to stop it, or to help you identify the scammer.

Happening to someone here in my office, tons of random stuff keep coming addressed to her. When I showed her this article others wanted to know how to get in on the action  :)
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

Just received a package from Amazon I definitely did not order. Has an address to some Chinese name in New Brunswick for delivery and than a sticker with my address (no name) added on. Had a backpack and power bank. Any reason to be concerned?

Randomly received this:
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B073S5N2M6/ref=cm_sw_r_wa_apa_i_78k3Db8699RVY

It was addressed to me and did contain a slip with order number. Started chatting with Amazon but realized that I wasnt gonna get anywhere with the fellow from india.

don't be late report to amazon with the order number.
and never use a credit card with unlimited money on online shopping sites.
alternatively, use a vcc

My wife has, but she doesn't use my name. Also the box had the Amazon tape on it.

Over the past week and a half I started receiving random packages and every few days that I never ordered... It was from a old Amazon account.
