Four college roommates and I moved into a new house in a sketchy neighborhood, next door neighbor welcomed us with a bottle of alcohol. And another bottle a couple weeks later. She now insists we make her a list of bottles we want. Something feels off. Are we being set up for some kind of scam?

And not just any alcohol: Gentleman's Jack, Grey Goose. Full, unopened fifths. We're all of age so that's not at issue, something just feels a little too good to be true.
We were a little reluctant to accept the first bottle, but we had just moved in that day, and we took it as a kind gesture. This last time occurred when a car was parked in our (empty) driveway. My roommate walked over to ask if it was their car, and someone went out to move the car. While he was standing there, the woman asked my roommate if he wanted a bottle of Grey Goose, and simply handed it to him. He told us she also asked him to make a list of all the alcohol we'd like. There hasn't been much interaction beyond "Hi"s in the driveway, so it seemed a little odd.
An hour later, she came by, knocked, and spoke to my other roommate, insisting our first roommate make a list of all the alcohol he'd like her to hook him up with.
Now we're a little weirded out. Is something up?
