Re: Don't
Good advice I just can't take. Mailbox snoopers haven't been active when I'm home lately. I will call if I see them again. :)

Re: Don't
I didn't realize this was true "it's an instant federal felony to so much as open or reach into someone else's mailbox unauthorized."

I have seen mailbox checkers on my block in the past. I'm concerned they are checking all boxes for goodies (paychecks, ID cards...)

@Michelle: True. Of course, it's an instant federal felony to so much as open or reach into someone else's mailbox unauthorized. (When I worked on the Census, we were explicitly told/trained on this point -- i.e., that we could not reach into someone's mailbox to determine who lived there.)

That essentially deters almost everyone but the real do-badders who intend to do bad things with your mail to begin with. At that point, it's a matter of risk assessment and cost-benefit analysis.

@batye: The fact is that scuzzy marketers are scuzzy marketers -- and no amount of regulation can keep them from being scuzzy marketers. Regulators simply do not have the time, resources, or energy to pursue every single potential violation. Typically, they keep complaints on file and go after the biggest, baddest, and/or most prolific offenders.

@Michelle:

> How are they going to address location at the time of collection??

IP logs combined with other evidence/accounts.

> (I should probably just read the linked article to find out)

Yes. Yes, you should. ;)
