I requested a book a while back, it was accepted and marked mailed by the sender.

The sender used DC and I'd been following it's progress on the maps and noticed it's been in my hometown a few days, just a few miles away.  I PM'd the sender, just jokingly asking if I should just go to the PO and pick it up.  She replied that the book she sent had already been received and journaled at BC.  My account still shows it as an open transaction.  Obviously I won't be marking it sent if I don't receive it, but what in the world is on it's way to me if it's not the book?

Also, I looked up the details in my transaction archive and it tells me that the request was accepted and then canceled within a few hours of the request.

I double checked the member's name from the open transaction on my main page and the canceled request and they're the same person.

What in the world is happening?

oh how weird!

i think i figured it out.  it's 2 different people with the same name and in the same state with the same book!  what are the odds of that!?

Hmmm... a member with 2 accounts (which would be a no-no) perhaps?
