Just had delivery of a cheap HSS 1/4-20 UNC tap and die set (with a die holder) from Amazon.
Package was flagged as a Bladed item and the courier wanted age verification ID before handing it over.
It appears to be the only set on Amazon's site so flagged - guess someone ticked the wrong box. The courier found it strange - she said she delivers Chainsaws without needing verification!

One cannot be too careful these days!
I once cut my finger with a sheet of drawing paper, with an edge like a knife.
Maybe the cardboard box was the danger ?

Maybe the supplier needs actual verification of delivery - as many couriers just dump things and leave - and this is the most water-tight means of achieving delivery in person? A good idea, but should not be necessary if courier drivers were made to operate correctly.

I bought a cheap set of metric taps & dies once that was so safe there was absolutely no danger whatever of cutting a thread with them...

Must be the day for it.
I have just been delivered a pair of size 5 BEYOU black plimsol/slippers by Hermes.
No supplier note inside, just a long 'ebay' number and my address !

Check your ebay account has not been ‘borrowed’
