I don't think it's a scam but somewhere, somebody messed up. We've been going through something similar.
I agree that this is most likely the case.
I have lived in my current home for about 6 years now and still, I get the occasional mail for some random person. If it is important, I write "delivered by mistake" on it and put it back in the box, and if it's just a flyer or something, I just get rid of it.
But the address of my particular house is particularly vulnerable to these mistakes. It is, let us say "100 North Main Street". There is also a "100 South Main Street" in town which happens to be a house that has been converted to apartments.
It is very common that the mail between the two addresses gets mixed up even when the address is correct, and sometimes it even happens that the address is listed on the mail as "100 Main Street"-who knows who that is for, but I just assume if it is not obviously intended for me, it is supposed to go to "South Main Street" and handle it accordingly.
Maybe something like that is going on in your case, some specific, easily made mistake, or maybe somebody just messed up in some random way. But in any case, I wouldn't assume that it is a scam.
My grandmother has the same situation with her address , as she lives at 100 2nd Ave. S. E. She's gotten to know the lady at 100 2nd Ave. S.W. very well! They're constantly having to bring mail to each other. (I assume the mistake probably also sometimes happens with N.E. and N.W.? but she only mentioned S.W., I suppose it's a more obvious mistake.)
I would think it might be that type of mistake for me, except our address is [integer] UniqueStreetName StreetType, City, Province, Postal Code. And all of it matches.
