A DAD opened his Amazon delivery to find a note begging for help and saying workers were treated “like slaves”.

The message was scrawled on brown wrapping paper in Matt Smith’s delivery.

It read: “Help. Plese (sic) take to papers. Conditions bad. No breaks not even for toilet. Long shifts. Treat us like slave (sic).”

Builder Matt, 32, of Huddersfield, West Yorks, said: “I thought it was a joke at first and then a pal said it might be serious. If it’s true it’s disgusting.

“I use Amazon all the time. I must have had 50 parcels off them in the last few months. I’ve never seen anything like this. It’s really worrying.”

The package was delivered from Amazon’s Sheffield warehouse.


But a source said the parcel could have come from Europe before being sent on to the firm’s UK distribution hubs.

An Amazon spokesman said: “This appears to be a prank, albeit in poor taste.

“But we take this seriously, so we are looking into it to ensure whoever wrote it has no genuine issues.”
