I bought 100 lost packages – I snagged a $400 hair tool but tons of fake designer stuff

ISn’t it the worst when you’re longingly waiting for a package and when it’s marked as delivered it’s nowhere to be seen?

Well, it turns out those lost packages can get into the hands of others – for a small price.

Hope Allen bought over 100 lost packages that cost her $3,000

Hope Allen, who runs the HopeScope YouTube channel and shares content about buying used clothes or lost packages, recently bought a hundred of them and found some pretty interesting things along the way.

She explained that if these packages are lost, they will be donated or auctioned off.

“Each of these boxes contains about 20 packages each and I’m bidding on these online,” Allen said in her video as she sat in front of five giant boxes.

“And I spent quite a bit on it, but if there are some real finds, it might be worth it!” It could be more than worth it!”

In total, Allen spent $3,281.53 for 115 packages.

FIRST BOX

As she began to open the packages, she discovered counterfeit fast chargers, men’s underwear and clothing, a used wig, facial tissues, and used Steve Madden dog outfits and shoes.

Everything was bought from Amazon.

“Can’t tell the first box was worth $100 let alone $1,000,” she said, frustrated.

SECOND BOX

In the second box she discovered packages that people had actually sent to each other but unfortunately got lost on the way.

She found more shoes, marijuana cigarettes, phone cases, screen protectors, pajama sets and candles, and cheap Gucci socks.

Luckily, they spotted a tiny $640 Louis Vuitton scarf in that box.

THIRD BOX

She also discovered floor cleaners, wall decorations, more dog outfits, garden rocks and Otterbox phone cases.

Among several bras and home accessories, Allen spotted a men’s Invicta watch valued at over $200.

Unfortunately, none of this was worth another $1,000 at the time.

FOURTH BOX

The fourth box Allen bought was mostly filled with clothing, including leggings, shirts, a headscarf and baby onesies.

Among the lost packages, Allen spotted a T3 Whirl Trio worth nearly $400.

“That was a good find! It may be the only good find in this box, but it’s a good one,” she said, hugging the hair tool to her body.

FIFTH BOX

Allen spotted a Louis Vuitton t-shirt, swimsuit and scarf, among other counterfeit designer goods.

Shockingly, the YouTuber also discovered several packages of used underwear, in what many consider a side hustle.

Women sell used underwear to the highest bidder.

Finally, she unpacked more fake Gucci socks, dresses, dog clothes and a used men’s razor.

Unfortunately, Allen realized a little too late that she didn’t get what she asked for.

In another shot taken on a different day, she said, “I’m pretty sure I was scammed – I feel like someone cleaned out a bunch of junk in their house, put it all in free USPS mailers and I was the sucker who paid $1,000 for it.

“So all I would say is steer clear of the lost postal lists.”

After counting what was worth keeping and what ended up being “junk,” she only got $300 worth of stuff.

She also donated over $700 worth of items and another $700 for her followers.

Despite paying almost $4,000 for everything, Allen only had over $1,658 worth of stuff.

She actually paid for everything twice.

After her video, one of her followers wrote: “I’ve worked for USPS for years now. The only thing USPS directly liquidates are lost items that no longer have their original packaging.

“They are sorted into categories and then sold by the pallet. Selling packages with addresses still on them is 100 percent nothing USPS can do.

“It could be stuff that was returned to the seller, then the seller turned around and sold it, or it could be a scam.”

Previously, Allen bought items straight from Selling Sunset’s Christine Quinn’s closet — and wasn’t pleased at all.
