In Van, France, Julien Shanyo ordered a swimsuit for his wife from an online store. But instead of clothes he front in the package the gold bars and coins weighing about a kilogram.


A 27-year-old man was preparing for a vacation, and therefore ordered a swimsuit for his wife. On February 2, he received a package that seemed suspiciously heavy to him. Having opened a package the Frenchman discovered real gold. The package contained coins of the beginning of the 20th century and gold bars weighing from 20 to 50 grams. The total weight of parcel reached 700 grams and its value is about 20 thousand euros.


It turned out that the postman mixed up the addresses. The correct recipient lived a few kilometers from Shanyo. An honest Frenchman tried to give the parcel back to the owner but he was not at home. Then Shanyo  took the parcel to the police who identified the real addressee. The further fate of coins and bars is not known.

 Meanwhile, the ordered swimsuit has not yet been delivered to the spouses.
