If you can read the forum you can figure out Craigslist, constant updates are tedious at best

i've had priority mail from miami go out of state, get sorted in kentucky, then come back down.


the trick is, use the recepients address as the return address, then "forget" to put a stamp on it. it will "be returned" to sender, which is actually, your target. all for free.

my dad likes to look at real estate ads in different parts of the country, hes in California. I sent him one of those big manila envelopes full of the real estate mags you see in front of the grocery store. he didn't get them , didn't get them...didn't get them.
4 months later the ENVELOPE is "returned to sender" , it had been slit open ever so nicely and the mags were gone. no explanation. now I mailed this from the post office so nobody else ever had access to it.
 think they thought they were getting a new titty mag out of it?

I got a envelope from Sarasota and was dated (on the envelope) the previous day, so mail seems fine for me, sometime no logic on USPS

but guessing three weeks and nothing still, its gone MIA

or the person saying something was in the mail was just pulling crap out of the air as they never intended to ever do anything they ever intended to say they were going to do.. like Japhei ..

I know I've just had to give up on a few things I thought were coming in the mail over the years.

the key should of been taped to a piece of paper, and folder over, never mail a key by itself.
