For about 20 years I had a PO Box in Nevada. I lost it this year when it expired because I did not receive timely notification and some notices did not reach me overseas. I am willing to pay the new box holder (they told me it was re-rented) to get it back. So I sent a letter addressed to “Box Holder” from my home in Europe.
The letter was never opened and returned marked “refused”. I am now going to send a post card so it can be read without opening. Just a simple request that if they are willing, I will pay for any charges to get the box back. I plan to include my email, website and Nevada phone number on the Prague post card as I will be in the US by the time it gets there.
I am baffled that the person never opened the letter and just refused it. It was a hand-written envelope and did not look like junk mail. Maybe they thought it was full of anthrax??
If you received a hand-written letter from overseas addressed to “Box Holder” from someplace you had no relation to, would you open it? I know I would.
