Few people from India received mysterious envelopes full of unlabeled seeds from China. Naturally, people are confused. Early this year, reports were received from the United States, Poland and few other countries that they also received a package with mysterious seeds.
Most of them those who received never ordered anything from China. They all are posting the photos on social media. Most seeds that have been shared online look like dry citrus seeds, a mix of ornamental, fruit and vegetable, herb, and weed species.
Could these mailings indicate some big bio warfare strike? Experts say that this could be an internet “brushing scam,” where sellers send unsolicited items to unsuspecting consumers and they post false reviews to boost sales.
