Why do large lottery winners(5mill+) still do business with regular first class mail? Why not do what Kramar on Seinfeld did and renounce the mail. If something comes certified then fine, you go and get your mail. But why bother having a box out front where anyone and everyone can put anything into it. Just denounce first class mail and be done with all the hounds.

 

Where am I wrong?

I think it falls along the lines of the mail must go through...right to you whether you want it or not. I don't want phone

books but I get them too often along with postcards, sales flyers, Publisher's Clearing House garbage.

I'll try to find a way to hide when I win multi-millions but in this day and age, someone will find me no doubt.

    I got no problem.

    Most of my mail gets delivered to other people.

    And luckily, the mail that's put in my mail box belongs to people who don't get much mail.

    So, once a week I take all the other people's mail I get to the post office and hand it to the guy at the counter and he says "yeah, that happens" and then I wait to see if anybody returns my mail. And they charge for this "service." The US Postal "Service".

    Don't get me wrong, I know it must be a monumental and thankless task to put an envelope with a number on it into a box with the same number.

      I had to laugh about the phone books.

      I have so many phone books..lol..but when I need a # I use my phone or computer...

      Oh well, perhaps I better keep them, justin case Roll Eyes

        What do famous people do about mail? Surely they have hoards of unwanted mail all the time. Does Harrison Ford have a mailing address?

        I can see how you can hide the physical location of your home by ownership in trust or FLP, but what about personal records like drivers license, jury duty (as someone brought up), or IRS coorespondence. I can see tax stuff going to your CPA, but don't  you have to have your physical address on your drivers license? Meaning PO boxes are not accepted. Plus the banks have to mail your new debit and/or credit cards somewhere. There has to be ways around all this. I would bet someone in the personal security biz would have the answers.

        Good question. Thumbs Up

          I always thought it was strange that a jury duty letter didn't come certified mail but regular mail. Imagine what would happen to the justice system if no one showed up to jury duty because they all said they never recieved their mail? One would think that would be something that should come certified know?

          Been there, and they don't care.

          If they mail you a summons and you don't appear, they send an officer out to get you, it doesn't matter to them if you actually received it or not.

            Yes, Harrison does, they all do, it is USUALLY to their agency/agent/PR firm, but in this case:

            Ford, Harrison - 3555 N. Moose Wilson Rd., Jackson, WY 83001


            As far as mail goes, I do ALL, and I mean ALL, of my financial transactions via the internet. Every bill I recieve is sent to a certain 'business-only' e-mail address, and every bill I pay is paid via the internet.
