The 76 year old does not know who is behind these mystery packages but they seem to know he has a dog. The packages have been coming with some rather funny messages.

Some members of the public were concerned that Peter could have fallen the victim of a ‘brushing scam’, where Amazon sellers create fake orders in the names of unsuspecting members of the public.

Amazon also revealed they know who is sending these packages but are unable to reveal their identity due to their privacy policies.
Mr Jackson is not going quackers, someone indeed is sending him rubber ducks. While we can’t reveal the customers true feathers, we can assure Mr Jackson he will not be receiving a ‘bill’.Amazon Spokesperson
