    The Suicide Squad (2021) in my list and I didn’t buy it.

    I had The Suicide Squad as a recent buy, but I didn’t buy it. I don’t even have a receipt for it too in my emails, so I can’t even return it. I am on the family sharing, but it’s listed under me and no one else, so it shows I purchased it. Anyone have this happen to them before?
