‘ipoopyou’ deliverers changing terms of use

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Just days after an 8-year-old in Woodland received a package of feces delivered to her home, the online company behind the service is working to change their terms of use.

Guillermo Sanchez and Rafael Saenz, who run the ipoopyou.com site in San Francisco, told KOIN 6 News they are working to make sure this kind of thing doesn’t happen again.

Woodland resident Jamie Villanueva still can’t believe someone did this to her daughter.

“I pulled the tape off for her. I let her open the box,” she told KOIN 6 News. “That’s when she thought it was chocolate ice cream.”

She saw the cartoon picture of poop and then opened the card.

“It says, ‘I Poop You, professional delivery service for that someone special.”

The online business states on its website it delivers animal waste but their service should only be used to engage in a joke. The site’s terms of use section states its product is not to be used for harassment or to embarrass another person.

Sanchez and Saenz told KOIN 6 News they’ve previously rejected orders when they thought they were being placed to harass or provoke someone. But they said this is a first for them.

They promised they were changing their terms of use on their site by asking users to promise they’re not shipping the item to someone under 18.

“This is something new that we’re working on it, of course, like, immediately,” Saenz said. “It’s going to  be a part of our terms of use. We are horrified as well, like many, many people.”

Villanueva did not open the container because, she said she believed “what the label says” — high quality, farm raised and eco-friendly, hand-picked animal poop.

It was delivered by UPS to their door in a plain brown box.

UPS told KOIN 6 News they don’t accept those type of shipments. A spokesperson for the US Postal Service said animal specimens can be mailed but only if they meet certain packaging standards approved by the USPS, including a “biohazard” label on the inside of the box.
