- 65-year-old Jean Van Landeghem has been receiving boxes of pizza he did not order for the past nine years
- Bothered by what has been happening for almost a decade, Landeghem said he cannot sleep anymore and even start shaking each time he hears a scooter in the neighborhood
- While it does not cost him any money, the deliveries have been disturbing over the years; some are even brought to his his house at 2 a.m.
For almost a decade, 65-year-old Jean Van Landeghem has been receiving boxes of pizzas he did not order–and it has become more and more disturbing over the years.
In an interview with Het Laatste Nieuws, Landeghem said while he has been refusing to take the orders, having people knocking on his door all the time has become extremely frustrating. In fact, he received 14 boxes of pizza one time in January 2019.
“It started nine years ago, suddenly, a pizza delivery man handed me a whole load of pizzas. But I hadn’t ordered anything,” he shared. “It can be on a weekday or during weekends, and at any time of day….I have even had orders delivered to me at 2:00 a.m. I cannot sleep anymore. I start shaking every time I hear a scooter on the street. I dread that someone will come to drop off hot pizzas yet another time.”
And to make things stranger, while it seems like an isolated case, it is not only him who has grown tired of the “ghost pizza deliveries”. His friend from a nearby town has been experiencing something very similar, for the exact same period as him.
“A friend of mine who lives in Herenthout is going through exactly the same thing as I am. She has been receiving pizza she has not ordered for nine years, too,” said Landeghem. “Sometimes we both get them on the same day. When that happens, we warn each other to expect a delivery. When I find out whoever has been bothering me for the past nine years, it will not be their best day.”
He already asked the help of authorities many times but the none of them was able to stop it.
