An amazing idea on how to send mail for free!

Post by benol » Sun Mar 25, 2007 3:59 pm

Okay, here's my idea on how to send mail without postage!!!.

1. Write letter.

2. Put the person that you want to send it to in the RETURN address field.

3. Mail letter

4. They will recive the letter due to insufficient postage!!!

Except this would only work for local letters. An example follows.

You are in Ancaster, Ontario. You wish to use this method to send a letter for free to your friend in Toronto, Ontario (A 1 hour drive, roughly). The Post office in Ancaster will very likely NOT deliver the mail to Toronto without suspicion.

But I'll try it out for local and for non-local. Someone in Ontario PM me your address.

actually, it probably would work for long distance, just not international. just put it in the box at the post office, not your personal mailbox or the Post Office counter.

Well, I haven't tried it, so it's not illegal to not do. It's not illegal to talk about illegaly downloading music, which is a federal offence.

Seriously, when did he pop up? :P

Ya, this will only work locally, as they check stamps at the nearest post office. :P

Not quite 'amazing' but maybe it was like 50 years ago when the first person thought of that.

And yes, it's a silly idea and not worth the 39 cents you'll save. Plus, as has already been said, it's probably a federal offense.

Federal Shmederal!

Who will know? It's a federal offense because they have no way of stopping us except to scare us.
