A Primark buyer furiously demands a refund after claiming she was sold a dead man’s t-shirt.

Carrie, from Edinburgh, said she paid £ 1.50 for the plain white slim-fit top from the Princes Street store in Edinburgh to wear to her new job.

But after wearing it for a day, she noticed that she could feel an itchy mark, which upon inspection was attached to the official Primark label with a man’s name on it.

She raged in a TikTok video: “Okay, so I have to talk about something in a hot minute.

“Basically, I bought this T-shirt from Primark.

“I got it right when I started working, so it was in May or so.

“When I wore it, I was like ‘oh, there’s an itchy brand,’ so I look at it, and there’s a bad name – Thomas Hay, Fraserburgh, Brucklay.

“So I did not think much about it. I thought someone had just dodgily returned a top back to Primark and I had been unlucky to buy it.

“But then my friends were there the other day, and they looked through a bag of clothes that I had to throw away.

“They pulled out the white top and I said‘ oh my god the top I haven’t told anyone ’. Those were a lot smarter than me, they told Google it.

“So we googled his name – dead man. I also googled the hospital on the little brand – it’s a dementia ward. ”

According to the Scottish Sun, Carrie found a death notice on family announcements in which the man in question, Mr Hay, died aged 85 in the Brucklay ward at Fraserburgh Hospital on March 14 back in 2020.

Carrie requests that Primark investigate the situation and exactly why and how she could end up with a t-shirt that allegedly belongs to the ex-fisherman.

She is also asking for a full refund of the £ 1.50 she spent on top of their shop in Edinburgh.

Carrie added: “This is how it is linked to the Primark label. I just want to know why Primark sent me a dead man’s T-shirt and what do I do with it.

“This is from Primark on Princes street in Edinburgh – I’ve never been to Fraserburgh in my life.”

Other TikTok users discovered that the t-shirt was not even from the fashion season in 2021 – and the top should have been sold back in 2019.

One user wrote: “Tag also has SS19, which means it was from the spring-summer collection 2019.”

Another user put forward an interesting theory as to why the top was allegedly resold: “Maybe it was bought and marked with his name, and then he passed by before he had to wear it, so it was returned?

A spokesman for Primark told the Mirror: “We will investigate this if the customer wants to get in touch with customer service and we would more than like to help her.”
