    Want mail sent to a fake name at a fictitious address? Nope, nothing nefarious here. Move along.

    PO boxes are fictitious addresses now?

    Third party PO boxes are. They give your customer the illusion of a physical address, when it's really a commercial business.

    Which is part of the reason why the USPS will correct the address if you attempt to call it a suite or apartment to PMB. Yet postal logic doesn't account for the general public not understanding inside baseball terms like the difference in secondary address identifiers and nixies.

    my mail from a buddy in alabama is usually as follows:


    "Beavis
    11111 A Street
    Citytown CA 12345"

    and from

    "Butthead
    22222 B Street
    Township City AL 67890"

    no problems ever.

    You all don't get it since a CMRA is not an actual address for a cop or federal agent to get a search warrant for nor linked to an actual person during a investigation, Homeland Security forced the postal service to force the receivers of the mail, the UPS Store in this case, to link actual people to the hole in a wall PO box they rent out.

    If the telephone companies were public and not private services there would be no "burner" prepaid cellphones either
