 Keep the stuff. Ditch the friend.

Fair point @dinger, but he knows where we live...Teenage Mutant is 99.99999% sure he didn't pass on our address. Scary.

 Anyway, advice on Mums Net is to ask for bank details, if none are forthcoming tell bloke we'll make a donation to charidee...

 Yeah, it's a weird one innit. I reckon the people on here (and associated forums) who've known me long enough could work out my identity and address if they wanted to. Fatso has sent me parcels of his used knickers for years. You can build up a profile of someone over time without having to ask too many explicit questions.

Actually doing it though is crossing a boundary.

What's the spec on the mic though? It might be worth keeping that.

So you had such little faith in the quality advice you'd get from sotonians that you also posted on mums net? Well fuck you!

 To be fair the advice of premenopausal wimmin is the more sensible route - so Mrs C_S has told me. Not that she thinks Sotonians are like something unpleasant you find on the bottom of your shoe...

 Has this friend been asked where they got the address from? Have you or the boy been communicating with them since the gift arrived?

 Teenage Mutant has only contacted said bloke to say thanks but no thanks tbf. We've been more interested in figuring out how to return the "gift". Next step is to start to ask those questions - it's all a bit weird. Not sure how I should be handling it to be fair - the boy is uncomfortable but Apart from the address thing I'm frankly bewildered about what to do next.

I'd like to give you some advice but haven't a clue what to do in such a situation. You should try Mumsnet.

 Seems pretty straightforward to me. If they're mates why doesn't your son just say "Thanks but no thanks. By the way, how did you get my address?" If the bloke gets funny, he's obviously a strange one. If he has a perfectly legitimate explanation just say "OK, thanks, if you give me your address I'll return the gift".

 So making a donation to charity is better that getting our short angry webmaster to kick the piss out of him???

I think not.

Took me a while to get your address, tbf.

This seems like a semi appropriate thread.......

Look at this bizarre story. It seems to be a thing in America (surprise) where gamers call 911 and give an address and get armed police sent to that house....... in this story the caller pretended to have shot his dad and was going to kill his family...... So the police turn up,  the actual bloke living in the house has no idea what's happening, reaches to his waist for some reason and the police shoot him dead. And that's a hoax apparently. What is wrong with people? Is this an American thing, a gamer thing or an American gamer thing?
