Claiming to be from Amazon - Person showed-up at the door asking when we are there?
A woman showed up at the door claiming to be from Amazon. She didn't have a package but alleged that maybe there was a problem with a driver who was unable to make a delivery at some time in the past but couldn't access the office (?!)
She offered no ID or biz card (like a dummy, I didn't ask, either).
She asked when specifically we were there. She said Amazon drivers start delivering at 5 am. I wasn't suspicious (yet) so I told her we were there from 9 to 9. She asked if we are here on the weekends and again are we there at 5 am.
Two calls to Amazon customer support.
Amazon logistics dept. told me that some local delivery stations will send address verification reps out but I the can't verify that the person was actually from Amazon.
What do you make of this?
Two Amazon Logistics agents advised me to file a police report and insisted that no one from Amazon would ever show up at the door.
Then I saw this:
Verify: Does Amazon have address verification employees?
This TV station confirmed that there IS a property management team that does come out to apartment buildings, office buildings, campuses, etc. to determine delivery availability hours, etc.
I called the number on the KGW8 report and they confirmed it.

Did they come to your house or place of business? Or, do you happen to get a LOT of Amazon deliveries returned/delayed because nobody is there to accept?
They came into my office...but when asked for a business card...it said Amazon on it. It was the exact same inquiry though, so I wouldnt worry if I were you.
I know they do contract with local delivery companies, you can still ask for ID or a business card though....you already know that part.
