Amazon accidentally sends email to customers that a gift from their nonexistent baby registry is on the way

Everyone receives an odd email every so often, but when it’s from a trusted site like Amazon and it’s sent to masses, people tend to freak out a little.

Sometimes after 4:30 p.m. ET Tuesday afternoon, Amazon apparently sent a mass email to an unknown number of people, informing them that “a gift is on its way.” But before anyone could count their blessings that the Amazon gods or a kind soul were gifting them some free stuff, the message was promptly ruined by a baby wearing a diaper. 

“Hello Amazon Customer,” the email reads. “Someone great recently purchased a gift from your baby registry!”

The problem? This email was sent out to a bunch of people who did not have baby registries with Amazon. Some of them didn’t even have babies.

Some people claimed it was possibly a “scam” or even a phishing attempt, though some have shot down those rumors.

Given the sensitive nature of the contents, some were less than pleased to receive the email.

While others found it found it humorous.

Amazon did not immediately respond to Mashable‘s request for comment, but we’ll update this post if we hear back.
