Morality police need not respond, I'm curious of the legal responsibilities of the buyer (if any).
I literally just had this happen yesterday. Bought two items and they showed up on Monday in one box. Then yesterday the exact same items showed up again.

I think it would fall under the rules covering unsolicited merchandise:

Hm. Interesting--the statute is for the Postal Service. Do you have a source I can look at? The FTC website doesn't differentiate. It just says if merchandise is "sent" to you you can keep it.

That's the thing, I don't think a duplicate order would fall under the category of unsolicited merchandise considering it's related to my original order.

Same exact law is cited in Ontario.

It's amazing to me that a non M E46 is such a beautiful car but the E46 M has never done much for me.

In business school we had to take an ethics class that covered this kind of stuff.

For example: let's say you're running a dry cleaning operation with a partner. A customer comes in and pays with a $100 bill. After she leaves, you realize that she accidentally gave you TWO $100 bills. Ethics question: do you tell your partner?

Of course you tell him she overpaid...

You take that $100 bill, break it in the till, and tell him she accidentally gave you an extra $50. Give him $25. All is happy.
