    Default P. O. Box 140 Normanton

    I've just received a letter for a previous occupant of my address. Long gone, quite a few years ago gone occupant.

    The return address is P. O. Box 140 Normanton.

    Upon googling the return address, I find this thread: http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk...ing-ppi-2.html

    which seems to suggest that this P.O. Box belongs to some nasty debt collectionicon type organisation.

    Any hints as to how to handle this?

    Stick it back in the post with "not at this address" written on it

    If you are asked to deal with any matter via private message, PLEASE report it.
    Everything I say is opinion only. If you are unsure on any comment made, you should see a qualified solicitor

    Oh, that's the lender, not a DCAicon. A little less dodgy.

    I put the (unopened) envelope back in the post "return to sender, not known at this address, no forwarding address". I've also called my local office of
    Britannia Personal Lending, and they're "looking into it".

    Britannia say that the address is not theirs, but that of a consumer crediticon advice company. Unfortunately I have already RTS'd the letter, so this ends here until the next letter arrives.

    I really do appreciate all those 'thank you' emails - I'm glad I've been able to help. Apologies if I haven't acknowledged all of them.

    From the Postal Services Act 2000:

    "A person commits an offence if, intending to act to a person's detriment and without reasonable excuse, he opens a postal packet which he knows or reasonably suspects has been incorrectly delivered to him.
    It is all a matter of intent.

    Normanton is a halifaxicon (HBOS) processing centre - so any member of the group could be being administered from there - remember HBOSicon (and their subs) are now part of the Lloydsicon TSB group too.

    I received an envelope from "PO BOX 140" today., and it is addressed to some woman who hasn't lived at my address in ages. I've never met her and I'm sure I wouldn't want to meet her anyway. So I did what I do with all mail I get which belongs to someone else, and that is I write "DECEASED - RETURN TO SENDER" on the front of it and pop it back in the mailbox. This really messes them up at the other end so they just close the account, end of.

    Unlucky tho' if whoever reads is dyslexic, when they get it back they might see it as 'DISEASED - RETURNED TO SENDER'.
