Mystery China Seeds
This isn't anything new. People across the country received suspicious, unsolicited packages of seeds last July. The USDA received reports from 22 states and sent out a warning to not plant the seeds and notify officials of the packages .The seeds were identified as 14 different species, including, mustard, cabbage, morning glory and some herbs.
This is known as a 'brushing scam.' People receive unsolicited items from a seller who then posts false customer reviews to boost sales. The scam won't cost you money, but an unknown company could be using your likeness to boost their presence and reputation online.
The Federal Trade Commission recommends changing all e-commerce passwords if you receive packages from China that you didn’t order.
