Moral thoughts say give it back but well its your choice

Send it back if you don't want it

Keep it...its there mistake not yours!

Keep, they have enough money.

if you want to sell it give me first dibs please.

I'm sure we can come to a good price :whistling:

technicaly its theft by finding but ur choice

remember the gold rings......

So if it went to your dads your dad would have signed for it??? So you are left with the chance that they will hassle your dad if they twig on .

how can you say its theft when op cancelled - he told them he didnt want it - they have forced this on him/her - so cruel tescos - :-D

i'd sue them for causing you such grief - you had to answer your door unnecessarily:-D

Inform them that they have 6 months to collect it (at their expense) & if they don't then it's yours to keep.

I'm still amazed you got post this morning!

Quote' Net profits advanced 1.3 percent to 1.027 billion pounds in the six months to August 29, compared with the same period last year, Tesco said in a results statement.'

Keep it for a couple of weeks, if you have heard nothing, then keep it/sell it on,
how can they make so much profit and do business like they do?
Tesco profits down next year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I think you should should keep quiet about it, send it back if they get in touch bit it would be terrible to get someone into trouble for making the mistake:whistling:

Complete BS.

If I give you £10 in error, can I call you a thief a few days later?

so what you gonna do, count who says return and who says keep, and go with the majority? I say do whatever you feel comfortable doing, so mine fits into neither

Not theft but classed as unsolicited goods. You do not need to notify them but if they do not contact you within 6 months to collect, it's legally yours. You have to 'reasonably' look after the goods but have the right to charge 'reasonable' storage fee's.

its not unsolicited goods as he did order it, human/system error is allowed in law.
there is no specific time limit set on errors just genuine unsolicted goods, first he must inform tesco of receipt of goods then if they fail to collect within a "reasonable" time he may dispose of them.
also he cannot charge for storage without notifying them of receipt of goods and giving time to collect before charges are imposed.
