Mum horrified after discovering a dead goldfish in the packaging of a bag she ordered from Boohoo
A SHOPPER had the shock of her life when she opened a package from e-retailer Boohoo, to find a tiny decomposed goldfish amongst the cellophane wrapping.
Mum-of-three Nikki Goodwin had ordered a black handbag for her 15-year-old daughter, Tayla Clarkson, but the teen got more than she bargained for when she unwrapped the gift.
The 34-year-old from London explained she'd bought the bag as a present for her daughter.
But Tayla was horrified when she opened the parcel to find the decaying fish.
"Tayla was pretty excited about getting a new bag, she’d been asking for one for school for a while so I let her order one using my card," explained mum Nikki.
“She came in from school and took the package upstairs then I just heard this scream. It was a really girly, dramatic scream. I was thinking ‘what now?’
“She said ‘there’s a fish’ and I was thinking that it was a prank and maybe one of the boys at school had put one in her schoolbag.
"She sent me a picture from upstairs and it was in the packaging on her bed.
“I went upstairs picked it up within the packaging and took some photos.
“It was all fossil-like. It had gone all hard from decomposing. It had a hard coating on it and you could just about see its eye and mouth.
"It was only a couple of inches long but it did stink when you got close to it.
“I was thinking ‘how the hell did it get there?’ I thought it was someone in the packaging factory having a laugh."
Luckily, although Tayla was "grossed out" she has seen the funny side of it and still uses the handbag.
“My daughter was grossed out by it but I could see the funny side. She’s seeing the funny side of it now," Nikki explained.
“It’s not put me off shopping there again. I’m not that squeamish.
"It just makes me wonder what might come in the next package.
“Tayla kept the bag and is using it so she’s not too traumatised.”
Full-time mum Nikki said she messaged Boohoo on Facebook and they offered her a £20 voucher and have promised her a full refund.
Fabulous Digital has contacted Boohoo for comment.
