Question

Received un-ordered keyboard, mouse and usb port in mail.

Recently, in 3 separate packages originating from china, i have received a keyboard, mouse and USB port that I didn't order. No invoice included, no packing slip, no obvious return address. The mouse and usb port had "Gift" printed on the mailing label in very small print.

The mouse and usb port didn't look "new", and were packaged in cheap zip-lock bags. Both went straight into trash. The keyboard is sitting in corner of my office, but probably going into trash also. The keyboard box has a UX-Uthink logo, and model number v-100. It also came with a usb mouse.

I've not plugged any of these devices into my PC. Is this some type of scam? Anyone else receiving random, cheap peripherals in the mail from china?
