In the Harrison West Neighborhood, it is the topic of conversation: the mail.

"Here's my neighbor's gas bill that I have to take over to him, " said Brady Taylor.

He says it's not the first time he's received the wrong mail, he says it's been happening more frequently.

"I've been getting other peoples mail and for some, I don't even know what street or address to deliver the mail to, " he said.

Jonathan Bailey says it happens to his mail too. And now he's worried.

"It's very frustrating, especially if you think of any type of bill, bank statement and you're wondering, I haven't received that, " Bailey said.

He's also worried about who may have his mail.

"Of course there's concern. What if it's not a trustworthy neighbor, could they be accessing any type of your account information?"

ABC 6/FOX28 reached out to the post office about the delivery drama.

David Van Allen with USPS Corporate Communications released this statement.

The Postal Service strives for timely, accurate service and is disappointed to learn of this situation. Customers with mail service concerns should report it to the USPS by calling 1-800-ASK-USPS (1-800-275-8777). Every reported customer concern is actively addressed.

But until the issue can be resolved, Taylor who is waiting for a Christmas package, says he has a solution on how to handle the problem.

"If its sent by the post office, you can usually check and change it to something like Fed Ex. If not, I'll have it sent to my parents house."
