A COUNTY Durham man has been driven quackers because yellow rubber ducks keep showing up in the post - and he has no idea why.

Peter Jackson of Ushaw Moor, near Durham, has been receiving dozens of mystery parcels from Amazon for the past two weeks.

Among them, a packet of cheese crackers, a dog bone and a series of yellow rubber ducks - nine and counting.

But the 76-year-old, who doesn't actually have an Amazon account, has absolutely no idea who has been sending the parcels.

He also says Amazon have been unable to provide any answers over the mystery deliveries due to 'customer confidentiality.'

Speaking to The Northern Echo, he said: "It started about a fortnight ago, I received the two of these rubber ducks in the post.

"I thought nothing more of it, thought it was just a mistake with Amazon, then the next day another duck arrived, and they kept coming everyday."

Mr Jackson, who has lived in New Acres for the past four years, said it is the first time anything like this has happened.

He said: "I've now got a total of nine ducks - I don’t even have a bath, I have got a walk-in shower.

“I don’t really know what’s going on."

His friends and family have since denied responsibility and have been trying to seek answers on his behalf.

He said: "My step-son got onto Amazon and they said it looks like they are coming from two separate accounts but they couldn't give names because it's confidential."

The Northern Echo:

The 'Munchkin' yellow rubber ducks are currently listed for £2.79 on Amazon and have recently been reduced from their recommended retail price of £3.49.

Mr Jackson said: "It if its a practical joke, it’s costing them money, these rubber ducks are £2.79. It must have cost them about £30 by now."

Ruling out that it's any of his friends or family, Mr Jackson said he has been providing daily updates much to their delight.

He said: "It’s become a big laugh, they just can’t believe it. I keep telling them another duck has arrived and they can't believe it."

In response, Amazon said they would investigate further once they received further details of the parcels.
