Even now? Damn...Steve1960 wrote:It seems this person built up quite a number of debts but most interestingly still seems to be using our address to continue to apply for loans and credit.
I know. I was in that position too. Until I decided to sit down, spent 1 hour and did that for every damned letter. I can imagine the postman's face when he looked at the undelivered mailbox the next day!Steve1960 wrote:Yes we have been here for 13 months and still there are letters dated in the last couple of weeks regarding applications for loans etc.
I will try your suggestion although I have in the region of 60 letters and that is only in the last month!
I keep the landlord's mail for her, but toss previous tenant's mail. I tried to give it to them one time, but they made a huge production out of meeting up to collect it. Rescheduled, made me come to them, and then acted like they were doing me a favor. So freak them.PNGMK wrote:From what I can tell it's not an offense to throw out mail. I gave my previous owner one written SMS warning and now I just throw it. I know that it includes dividend cheques but freak em.
I did this for awhile. I contemplated taking the dividend cheques directly across the road to the Buddhist temple and dropping them in their mail box.Steve1960 wrote:I just hadn't been paying much attention to the names on the letters. If it wasn't my name I just left it in the post box for the landlord to collect themselves.
Now the landlord tells me only 10% of the post is actually for her it started to tie in with the visits we have had recently asking after the previous tenant.
Having opened a few of the letters there seems to be a hell of a lot of recent activity still using our address. I could just bin it all but I am not sure it would ever reduce let alone stop.
I think I will try returning all the letters and see if it begins to reduce the mail. Alternatively I could open each letter and write to, call or email the companies concerned but that may be a little over the top and I ahve better things to do with my time.
