Today my mom, bored lover of games and mysteries, bragged about outsmarting scammers by burning all the post and gifts they have been sending her. For a special birthday / Christmas, I'd splurged on an expensive, interactive mystery game where you are mailed clues over the course of 6 months. FML

Even if the gifts were items from scammers, I don't see how becoming the scammers' elaborate garbage collector would be "outsmarting" them.

If she got hypothetical scammers to send /her/ money, then we'd have something…

"A murder at the duchess' palace has left us in need of your help… if you could send—"
"Sure, but I'll need about thirty bucks for supplies."
"Uh… okay, but then we'll requir—"
"And food."

Aww OP, that sucks. Is the mystery part of it, supposed to be who sent it? As someone who has never heard of this kind of game, I'm kinda confused.

If you didn't tell her it was part of a gift,
you deserve it. I'd throw away anything that looks like junk mail also.

On another note, you may be able to get a partial refund if you call the company and complain about their poor packaging.
