This problem started since I moved into my new house in July 2013.

Different people/organisation have sent letters to my address for former occupiers

which is now stopping since I returned them to the postbox,

but there is one which hasn't stopped.

 

The problem is from Specsavers who have sending post at my address for a former occupier

who used to live at my address and still is still persisting.

I haven't opened these all letters as it is against the law.

Overall, Specsavers sent around 7 letters to the same person and I have been sending it back to the postbox

 

Other companies who have sent former people in my address have stopped sending me letters

since I returned it to the post, but Specsavers have sent one again on Tuesday 10th February 2015.

 

What should I do now,

should I send a complaint letter to the customer services or the CEO of Specsavers?

When I first receiving these letters I used shredders.

 

But when the quantity of letters increased, I decided to return them to the postbox.

 

The shredder did not work for me.

have you one of their store nearby you could pop into with one of the letters

 

 

might be as simple as the details being removed from a database for flyers?

Unfortunately, I don't have enough time to visit one of their branches because of work.

 

I have been thinking to resolve their issue through the customer services team to inform them of this problem.

 

Thanks anyways.

Just keep them all, and mass mail it back to them. Cut out the front of a prepaid envelope if they have provided one, and tape it to the front of a parcel with all their junk in it. Then send it back to them at their expense.


Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..

Is it true Royal Mail charges the sender if letters are being sent to a wrong address?

Some would also advise wrapping a brick with the letters before posting :madgrin:

No. The sender has paid for delivery to the address displayed on the envelope. Royal Mail have a legal obligation to attempt delivery. Letters marked "Return To Sender" are generally returned free of charge if unopened.

Print clearly on both the back and front of the unopened envelope :_

 

"RETURN TO SENDER"

"THERE IS NO ONE OF THIS NAME AT THIS ADDRESS"

"THIS IS NOT THE FIRST TIME THESE LETTERS HAVE BEEN RETURNED"

"PLEASE AMEND YOUR RECORDS"
