I received a book from someone that doesn't belong to me.  I searched the member directory and can't find the lady who shipped it.  I'm not sure how to find out who it was so that I can get this corrected.  She mailed it Priority, so I am assuming that the intended reciever needed it in a hurry for some reason.  Any help you can give would be much appreciated.  Thank you.  Sharon

There's a Help doc about this called "I received a book I didn't request!". You can find it by holding your mouse over Help Center up in the menu bar and then selecting Browse Help Docs.

If the steps in that doc don't help you figure out who sent the book, then to to the bottom of the page and click on the Contact Us link. Then click on Send Feedback. Explain what happened. Make sure to give the full return address from the wrapper including the Request ID if it's on there. Also give the book title.

You don't have any pending requests from this person?  Your enroute to me books will show the state they are coming from.  See if you have a pending request coming from the state this was mailed from.  You should be able to pm the person.  It might be a case of books being switched.  You could also try searching the membership directory. If  they have set up a profile you might be able to find them that way. Or you could post the title of the book you were sent in a couple of the forums and see if the person responds. Just post the book title-sent to me by mistake or something like that.  Then in the thread explain that this person sent you this book priority that you didn't order. 

Oops. I missed the part where you already searched the member directory.
