My mom had her wallet stolen many years ago. The crook was nice enough to mail back the wallet and cards after removing all of the cash. He used this method to return it (it was mailed locally). So it does work, or at least it used to...

It definitely works if you're just mailing something across town... but if the return address (i.e. the "destination") was in a town hundreds of miles away and the feaux destination (your address) was in the town where the letter was found to have no stamp I think they would catch on because how would the letter have made it to that station with no stamp.

dang, I usually buy the forever stamps wich would still be good in 5 years even if postage goes up in price, however they are like 20 bucks for a single book..and for me 20 bucks for stamps is kind of expensive..but I like to keep a book in my purse in case I need a stamp LOL

I dont know about over in the US but you could probably get away with this here, I used to work in a PO for a while and they say your surposed to check each letter that comes in.. for re-used stamps ect, but honestly who can be bothered to look at every god damned one?

I've had this idea in the past. It's called mail fraud. I don't recommend it.

1. log on to G-Mail
2. click new message
3. click send message

"why don't you just walk over and deliver it yourself?"

why not save the paper/time and just call them

No doubt it would work if you're sending it to the same zip code. Not like you can do this sending a letter from LA to NY

This is from a book called "Steal This Book" by Abby Hoffman, a 60s cult classic.

they just keep the letter and send a notice to either the postal address or the return address (depending who the post office its with is nearest)saying "not enough funds, please pay £X funds plus a £1 fine" which you then have to go and pay at said post office, and then either pick up that card or re-pay for it to be sent.

trust me on this one. never under fund a letter, not worth the hassle. always check.

They rarely "return to sender" these days. They just don't send them and incinerate them as lost letters.

This might still work,but only if you're sending this within the same zip code. And if you're sending it in the same zip code, why don't you just walk over and deliver it yourself?

This will only work if the letter is local. Why ?

See those first 3 numbers of your zipcode, Yeah those are distribution center numbers, the next 2 are the local post office number. The distribution center knows which letters are sent from which location, thus if you attempt to send a letter, like this, outside your zip code it won't work, they'll detect that the letter was sent from your location and return it with a big red stamp "Wrong address" and "No Postage".

Also, Before you think of doing this, even locally, it is a federal crime "Mail Fraud". So unless you like spending time in a federal penitentiary it's really not worth saving 42 cents.

Y'know, the guv'ment doesn't mess around when it comes to mail fraud.
