Safe Addresses...Suggestions on how to get and keep one
Posted 20 April 2005 - 11:04 PM
Not only are they a REALLY good idea, they are necessary in the barter system so that if (when, actually, cuz it WILL happen eventually) something becomes compromised in transit, it does not mean a ride under the bubblegum lights or worse.
So...The topic is suggestions for acquiring a good, truely safe address, and any method specifically intended to keep shippers and especially receivers from harm.
I would like suggestions of both what works, and what has failed. WE ALL COULD BENEFIT FROM INCREASED PERSONAL SAFETY! This is a brainstorming effort, so please be kind to posters of impractical or insane ideas. We can weed nicely. :D
Let's start with a suggestion I heard in another thread:
Pay a bum to get you a post office box NOT attached to your home address.

the mail goes to a firm/service's address first,
is re-mailed unopened by them [placed inside larger pkg.]
to a specified address
known only to the re-mailer.
there are several on the 'net,
many outside usa jurisdiction.
a small fee per piece of mail is usually required

for possession of packages of dubious content...

DEI has a good point about using a friends house where it is safe.
I'm thinking a safe way would be if you know someone whom you trust that has a business or business address you could use. That way they can say they get the wrong mail sent to them all the time or something. Just throwing out ideas.

lots of folks
eager to use me.
i'd have to study the issue
before involving myself,
pretty busy with other projects currently.

I think its a great Idea But I wouldnt call it a myco re-mailer for obvious reasons.
i could do it,
if there was interest...
