    By: KIRO 7 News Staff


    Many people online – both women and men – said they received notices Tuesday about gifts being purchased for their baby registry.


    Problem is, in many cases the people who received the noticed said they didn’t have a registry – or weren’t even pregnant.


    “We are notifying affected customers," an Amazon spokeswoman said Tuesday evening. "A technical glitch caused us to inadvertently send a gift alert e-mail earlier today. We apologize for any confusion this may have caused.”

    “Hello Amazon Customer,” the screengrab of one of the messages read. “Someone great recently purchased a gift for your baby registry! You can visit your Thank You List to easily track all gifts purchased. PS: Remember some Gifters like when it’s still a surprise.”


    There was a box where users could click through to a Thank You List.

    Many people who received the message tweeted it with the hashtag #amazonbaby. Read some of the tweets below.
