A few perplexed individuals have taken to Twitter to reveal that Amazon had sent them emails about gifts from their baby register being en route to their home. However, these people did not create a baby registry, nor do they have (or are expecting) any children. 

The email features a stock photo of a toddler, and informs users that a gift is on its way.

While some may have thought the email was a phishing effort, other users clicked to view the baby registry, only to be redirected to a broken webpage. Users with a registry also found that there were no items bought after clicking the link attached to the email. 

A spokesperson for Amazon clarified that the cause of the unintentional emails were due to a technical glitch.
