Here's what happens to packages when they get lost or go unclaimed

Have you ever wondered what happens to packages and pieces of mail that can’t be delivered?. Well, believe it or not, a lot of that unclaimed mail actually gets auctioned off to the highest bidder. And apparently, small business and vendors will buy some of those unclaimed packages and sell them as mystery boxes. In a video that now has 5.6 million likes and 32.5 million views, TikTok user @caloriequeen14 explained her recent experience at a local swap meet in Las Vegas. The vendor was selling lost packages for just $1 each. Though Stephanie had no way of knowing what was in the packages, she decided to buy 100 of them “just for fun” and she’s now opening all of them for her TikTok followers. Many of her packages have contained gift cards to retailers like Starbucks, Sephora and Applebee’s. Others, though, have contained slightly less useful items like a cheap phone speaker and a vape pen charger. Naturally, TikTokers can’t get enough of Stephanie’s unboxing videos. “The only thing I look forward [to] every day,” one person said. “I’m addicted to watching this series,” another added. “That’s awesome,” a third wrote
