    Man, I am fuming!!! Thanks again President Bushwhacked and Mr. AshKKKroft. @#$%^&*()_+ Patriot Act. They can cram it up thier arses.

    Sorry, just had to vent. I am trying to change my mailing address to the one they are already supposed to be mailing my statement to anyway. I use a PO box, not my home address. Looks like this says I can't even do that now. I give up!!!

    It's for your own good. And the children. Besides, if you aren't doing anything wrong why would you be worried? :uhoh:

    I did a trade-in and upgrade on my pickup truck, yesterday. There's an "anti-terrorist" warning about money laundering at the dealership...I've bought houses and land on time payment with less paperwork than this cash+trade deal on a danged truck!

    I gotta admit that it's fun to watch a clerical type's eyes get all crossed when I try to explain that where I live there are almost no named roads, almost no named "streets" and no street addresses except what we make up for the benefit of the UPS man. My "official" address is a compass direction and the cross-country guesstimated mileage from my post office. :D

    I use a local bank (s) for my needs , including the one credit card I have.
    Due to a recent "identity theft" situation I Cx everything and started over with all new accts. My banker(s) ,long time friends, are "not real happy" with the new "regulations".

    Actually since I rarely use my checking, debit and especially credit card, my statements actually are kept at the bank for me to pick up...until myself and the bank(s) are comfortable with my situation.

    I really really hate the SSN being used for ID purposes. School ID, health insurance...and I made a big suggestion - quit putting the darn "account numbers" in the statements. My attempt ( without going into particulars and giving ideas to BGs) ,my mail was put into wrong mailbox / someone claimed to be me when postperson was putting mail into the apt "pigeon holes".

    I "may " have upset someone during / giving testimony...real difficult to hide one's ID when you "state your name for the record".

    I'm pushing for "a customer ID" for mailing purposes ...yeah more of a pain and paperwork...but makes more sense to not have my actual acct # on a statement mailed to me...even one showing no activity.

    Yo Art-do you use a "gate" as part of your address? My step son did when he was living down there, North of Terlingua on the hwy going towards Alpine.

    Quite frankly, simply from the identity theft avenue, I wouldn't want to be able to do an address change for a financial institution online anyway.

    Great way to redirect mail and grab control of an account.

    Mail Boxes ETC (AKA UPS STORE) Lets you retain a PO box, with auto-forwarding to your real address.

    And it appears as and is delivered to just like any normal address.

    (actually treat it as a sute number.)


    It works great, and you don't have to deal with the bull???? and stigma of 'PO BOX'.

    Artherd,

    Private PO box places are fairly popular in some cities, such as NY. Some years ago they had a huge bust at one. Employees were rifling the mail and grabbing credit card applications and going to town.
