There is no such business named 'BottomLineBooks', like how they want the check made out to. There are 6 businesses with the name 'Bottom Line Books', but just 1 of them is active (legally operating): 'Bottom Line Books LLC New York Domestic Limited-Liability Company Bottom Line Book Filing Date 08/25/2016 in Lafargeville, NY'. Is it the same company? I don't know, but the address of the invoice received is different.

There is a difference between an invoice and a bill. Look it up and learn.

One final thing. If any company sends you something you did not order, YOU ARE NOT UNDER ANY OBLIGATION TO RETURN IT! Consider it a gift. Look it up, it's true.
