A WOMAN was left baffled after a postman sent a "proof of delivery" photo from a very unusual location.

While waiting for the parcel to be delivered, she says that she received a confusing picture from the postal service claiming it had already arrived.

And it appears that the image of her package was taken far from home in what looks like the sorting office.

Posting under the username hellojaddy, the woman uploaded the perplexing photo on popular social media site Reddit.

She dryly remarked: "I can confirm I do not live in the sorting office".

The screenshotted image appears to show the parcel inside a cardboard tray, against a workplace background.
