Join the Secret Elves to discover the best shopping deals and things to do this Christmas
A mum-of-two was left fuming after an Amazon delivery driver stuck her Christmas presents in a wheelie bin – which was afterwards emptied.
Cory Lambert, from Leeds in Yorkshire, splashed out £83 on gifts for her son Finley and daughter Penny.
She checked her Amazon app after not hearing anything for a few days, and discovered the items had already been delivered in a so-called “secure location”.
The driver had attached a picture of the gifts in the bin.
On Wednesday, December 16, Cory shared the picture on Facebook and wrote: "Absolutely fuming! How the hell is this in a secure location!
"No note left or posted to state where the parcels had been left or anything!
"Just been online to check where my parcels were and saw this photo.
"The bin men came yesterday otherwise I would have got them out obviously.
"How do you go about a refund as this is four Christmas presents literally thrown away!"

Since the posting images of the delivery, Cory has been refunded her full amount by Amazon.
Cory added: "I ordered the items. A few days passed so I went on my Amazon account to see when they were arriving and noticed it said they had already arrived with the picture showing the driver had put them in the bin.
"The day before this the bin men came so I knew the bin was empty.
"The driver left no note and I received no notification to tell me what they had been delivered.

"I think it's stupid to put delivery items in a bin full stop to be honest. Unhygienic.
"I was more annoyed that they didn't leave a card telling me they had delivered it, never mind where it was as I bag up all my rubbish!"
An Amazon spokesperson said: "We have very high standards for our delivery service providers and expect every package to be handled with care.
"We've notified the right teams internally and are working with the customer directly on matters related to their package delivery."
