My 16 year-old granddaughter started receiving baby related items (promotional letters, magazines, formula samples) about two months ago. When the first one arrived, I asked her (in a joking manner) if she had anything she needed to tell me. We laughed.
She doesn't have a credit card and the little shopping she is allowed is only by cash or her mother's debit card, so it doesn't seem to be a case of department store profiling. We keep treating it lightly, but the number of companies and the volume of junk is increasing. None of this comes from a store, just the suppliers (Gerber, Similac, Enfamil, birth announcements, furniture, 2 different magazines, etc) Eight pieces have come in just the last month.
I'm now concerned that she she may be the victim of a stalker who is sending unwanted, personal, embarrassing (for a 16 YO) materials. Her parents think I'm being overly sensitive but when she was in grade school, she was stalked by a 16 year old boy. The school took drastic safety measures and her parents requested a transfer to another elementary school which was promptly granted due to the circumstances and she was never bothered again.
So, kind DU'ers, I'm considering taking the time to contact all the companies and get to the bottom of this. What say you??? Am I being an over-protective Grandma or is there legitimate cause for concern?
