    So I get this email from Amazon saying that they shipped my Mac Pro!!

    Which would be awesome (I was recently looking at Mac Pro's from Amazon)

    Except that I never ordered it. I would consider keeping it and telling Amazon its your mistake and deal with it, except they charged my card. It looks like someone hacked into my Amazon acct and ordered me up a quad core..... Or more likely some amazon or browser glitch.

    Amazon issues

    Does the thief have it being shipped to nigeria or some other scam address or does it show your house?

    Wow, hacking into your own account and ordering a Mac sent to yourself
    If I were still married I would have to try that :)

    I just tried that and it said "Forget it loser; your card cannot even afford the shipping...."

    Come on answer the questions. Is it being shipped to your address? This is important to know!!

    Perhaps some Apple mind programming kicked in while you were asleep last night? Did it hurt to sit down when you got up this morning? If so, yep, Apple got ya.

    Did you actually receive the MBP? It sounds to me you may have received a Phish email in order to steal your Amazon log-in credentials so they can fraudulently order merchandise on your account (and ship to another address).
    If it was a phish and if you clicked on any links in the email, they may have your user credentials? If so, you better change your passwords.

    I'll lay it out for you:

    If it's too good to be true, it is.

    That just doesn't happen. I've had it where they shipped me the wrong product. I bought a Wacom bamboo tablet and they shipped me a Intuos tablet instead.

    I just find it unbelievable they would ship you a computer out of the blue. If there was browser issue or glitch, an order would at least need to have been submitted which would mean you have already been charged.

    Since it's been over a week, did you get your machine yet?
