Is anybody missing a laptop that got sent in for a battery replacement?

I received a laptop that isn't mine in the mail from the Lenovo repair center. I don't know how this happened, but the package was addressed to me and contained a laptop with a decorative skin or sticker of some kind that definitely doesn't belong to me. There was a paper in the box that said it was sent in for a battery replacement or repair and a case number but no name or contact info for the person it belongs to. I haven't removed the laptop from the plastic wrap it came in and I imagine that whoever it belongs to is very worried/frustrated at this point.


I received it more than a month ago. I have called Lenovo 5 times asking them to send me a shipping label to figure out what happened and how the laptop can get back to its rightful owner. They have yet to send me a shipping label or even acknowledge that any progress has been made to figure out what the next step is. Each and every time I am told that a mysterious case manager will call me. They won't give me the phone number or email of the case manager and no one has called me. I find it completely ridiculous that no one has contacted me or followed up after 5 phone calls from someone saying they have a laptop that doesn't belong to them. This is incredibly irresponsible on the part of Lenovo. Its been a month and a half! 


If you are missing your laptop and it sounds like it could be the one I have here, please reply and we'll figure out a way to verify that it belongs to you and get your laptop back to you. I'm convinced at this point that Lenovo isn't going to do a thing.
