This is great news for those expecting a little one, but there’s just one problem — it’s not true.

According to Tech Crunch, the retail giant has been telling customers someone has purchased a gift for them off their baby registry, but these emails are also going out to people who aren’t even pregnant, nor have an active baby registry:

But for those indeed expecting and happy to see what gift a lovely friend or family member purchased for them, customers were met with an error message … and a whole lot of disappointment:

Clearly not getting a gift they had so wanted, customers started to worry they were victims of a phishing scam:

Turns out, it was a technical glitch. An Amazon spokesperson told Tech Crunch:

“We are notifying affected customers. A technical glitch caused us to inadvertently send a gift alert e-mail earlier today. We apologize for any confusion this may have caused.”

Amazon followed up with those customers, sending this email:

While most people were able to brush the error off as no big deal, one customer did make a good point:

Here’s hoping Amazon gets its act together and that those truly expecting a baby gift in the mail aren’t disappointed in the future.
