I've seen several variations of this fraud and it appears to depend on some retailers sending out iPhones (and other valuable lightweight electronics) to people with flimsy security checks. It appears that they will then attempt to rely on just the signature of the recipient (if there is one) acknowledging receipt of the goods to enforce payment. Meanwhile the scammer will contact the target victim to state that the goods have been mis-delivered and attempt to take possession of them.

The owners of the property in Fairfield Road received a number of iPhone 5s's, they had not ordered, from various courier companies. Then, on Wednesday last week, they received a call and were told the phones had been delivered by mistake and a man would soon be over to collect them.
