What can I do if my neighbor gets my mail?
According to USPS, if you receive mail that’s not intended for you, you can simply return it by dropping the mail in a USPS Collection Box. It also helps to label it with “Not at this address” with a sticky note.
What do you do when someone else’s mail is delivered?
All you need to do is write “RETURN TO SENDER” on the front of the envelope and put it back in your mailbox. Your postal worker will take care of it for you from there.
Can I have mail delivered somewhere else?
USPS is everywhere. It allows you to pick-up your USPS mail or packages in your “current community” for up to 30 days. If you use priority mail, you can have your package forwarded one time to a different address at no cost. It’s free.
Can I throw away mail not addressed to me?
Yes. It is a federal crime to open or destroy mail that is not intended for you. The law provides that you can not “destroy, hide, open, or embezzle” mail that is not addressed to you. If you intentionally open or destroy someone else’s mail, you are committing obstruction of correspondence, which is a felony.
What do you do with mail not addressed to you?
If the mailpiece is delivered to the correct location but the recipient on the mailpiece does not reside at the address:
- Write “Not at this address” on mailpiece.
- Don’t erase or mark over the address.
- Provide the mailpiece to your mailperson or drop into a Collection Box receptacle.
Can you keep packages wrongly delivered to your house?
Goods. If the supplier doesn’t collect the goods within the recovery period, you can keep them without having to pay anything for them. But you can’t keep unsolicited goods if you: knew that the goods were not supposed to be sent to you – for example, if there is another name and address on the parcel.
How do I get my packages delivered discreetly?
The safest option for secretive mailing might require you to travel to a post office farther away, like one in a neighboring town or on the other side of your city. Bring the necessary information and forms to the post office. You will need to fill out Form PS 1093 to apply for your PO box.
What happens if you don’t want a package delivered to your house?
Package lockers are another good solution if you don’t want your packages to come to your door. Some package lockers are completely contact-free. You can arrange for the delivery driver to drop off the package inside a locker that’s convenient for you, then retrieve your package once delivery has been made.
Does Amazon deliver if no mailbox?
Regular rural carriers do not deliver anything to houses without mailboxes except for express mail. They also do not deliver to the door if it’s more than 1/2 mile (one way) from the line of travel. Sunday/holiday amazon gets delivered to the door. That work is compensated at the sub’s hourly rate.
Can you open mail with your address but someone else’s name?
Knowingly and purposefully opening another person’s mail is still illegal if the mail came to your address with someone else’s name on it. Simply write, “Wrong Address” or “Return to Sender” on the envelope instead and give it back to the service that sent it.
What happens if mail is sent to old address?
If your move is temporary, the USPS can forward your mail from your old address to a new one for 15 days to one year. To get started, fill out an official USPS change of address form. This covers questions about the type of move, the mail forwarding start and end date, and more.
How do I stop someone else’s mail coming to my address?
Using the Postal Service to Stop Mail. Write “Not at this address” on the exterior of the envelope. Then place the mail in an outgoing mailbox. This notifies the post office and the original sender that the recipient no longer lives at that address.
