How did the seller get your financial information? If they don't have it, then they have nothing to report to collections. I suppose you could be charged with receiving stolen property, but that is a legal issue, and the seller would have to file charges. That shipping receipt may end up being an important document for you.

Your "friend" pulled a scam, and you're caught up in the net. I don't think the seller has recourse to collect from you though. Good luck.

Tell the seller you didn’t order them and it’s not your credit card. There is no dispute with the credit card company if it’s NOT your card. The products were returned and unused to them. It’s THEIR issue to resolve with the person who made the purchase not you. Keep your receipt.

Anytime an item is delivered to your address that was not requested or ordered it’s not your responsibility to pay for it UNLESS you use it product, then it is considered as you accepted it. You’re under no obligation to do anything. However it’s always best to show good faith and attempt to return it unused to the sender.

And "yes" it still smells like a scam! Dump your friend!

"And they require me to pay for those 22 bottles or return them.In the letters , that online seller told me that if I can not pay or return the perfumes, they will use a collector agency. I have no idea what is going on, so please help, what should I do now ?"

Hire a hitman to shoot your friend.

Your friend is a thief. He used you to assist in his robbery.

The product were not returned to the seller. Like I said above, I mailed all of those 22 bottles to a cargo service because I thought my friend has already paid for them. After that,the cargo service sent all of them to my friend and my friend received them last month. I am afraid nobody is going to believe me since I don't keep any receipts and when I called the seller, it seems the receipts are under my name.

^^^^
The cargo service only provides that service...... shipping. It's the manufacture of the product wants their money. So why ship the items back to the cargo people???? The shipper hasn't any problem, they get paid for sending the product back and forth..........

Get a police report. Go to the police station and tell them what happened. That way it's documented in case you need it.

You don't need financial information to report something to collections. All you need is a name and address.
