Your Section 43 above also doesn't apply.
gosh people are stupid aren't they? I'm sure this guy would be ok if the TV he did order was mistakenly delivered to his neighbors house and the neighbor kept it.

He received unsolicited merchandise. Are you going to tell me that if he had called up Amazon and offered to pay for the TV, they wouldn't have made a deal with him? Of course they would have. Which means the TV is a legal gift.

Wrong. Misdelivered merchandise wasn't sent to him, it was meant for someone else.

It's like you are checking out at the supermarket and you've finished your order, but the cashier starts to ring the next person's stuff and the bagger puts it in your bag. Does it now belong to you, just because it ended up in your bag, even though you didn't pay for it? When the bagger realizes they made a mistake and start to remove the items from your bag, do you get to say "no, it belongs to me now because you put it in my bag?"

but he didn't, that's why I like living in a gated community, keeps me separated from criminals like this guy and trash which finds no fault here.

Commonwealth of Massachusetts General Law - Part I, Title XV, Chapter 93, Section 43
You are wrong once again, as you are wrong about every legal facet of this case. As I pointed out many pages ago, Title 39, United States Code, Section 3009 is part of the Postal Reorganization Act of 1970 and only applies to USPS.

Here is some info on that act, which, for the thousandth time, has no bearing on shipping mistakes.

This has already been addressed, multiple times. The shipping company made a mistaken delivery, and the shipping company attempted to rectify the situation.

Your continued insistence that this is a "free gift" is baffling.

Maybe he is the man in question and is looking for support for his actions. LOL.

At that point the TV no longer belonged to Amazon. Why would Amazon agree to a second payment for merchandise already shipped? You don't still think that they took a loss for the shipping company's mistake do you? The shipping company tried to work with guy, they are the ones that called the police to investigate because they want to recover the television, not Amazon. Why do you suppose they wanted it back so badly...

You're either trolling or just dumb.

I highly doubt any of Amazon's call center employees would have "made a deal with him" about that particular TV.

Someone else had already paid for it in any case.
