Sometime last century, there was a problem with companies sending unordered merchandise to people, then trying to collect ( possibly outrageously large amounts of ) money for it. The responsibilities of the recipient were clarified by law. The recipient has no obligation whatsoever to the sender. So companies need to ensure that something has actually been ordered before sending it out, unless thay want to make it a gift.
This happened to me once... a company sent me a bunch of stupid bath salts and tried to charge me $400+ for it and a "birthday reminder service"... somehow they'd gotten my credit card number and billed it... I tried to get them to reverse the charge, but finally had to have my CC company do it!
