Answer is SIMPLE. If you are a young good looking chick, do you think the Post Office should give me your forwarding address without your knowledge? NO WAY PERIOD. Some years back in Calif. drivers were required to have vehicle registration on the visor visible from the outside. A young late teen girl was Raped after someone copied her address from the visible registration. Now, you only have to keep it in the vehicle if asked for by a police officer. Hope this answers your question. Stefhen

if the neighbor moved less than a year ago, just send whatever to the old address and it will be forwarded to them

This begs the question ... I've seen envelopes with a message printed on them asking the postmaster to 1) forward and 2) address correction requested .. and I know that some of my mailing groups (membership things as example) have made the change in their computers based on the info they did receive from somewhere other than me.

Right after we moved I got a newsletter with the yellow sticker that had my forwarding address applied by the post office. I forgot to contact the publisher to change my address, but the next newsletter came with the new address already in place.

Depends on the PO. Years after my son was divorced and uncle sam was mailing out tax rebates, his ex wife had HIS mail forwarded to her address in hopes of getting his tax check.

My husband died 20 years ago and there is one publication (of interest to him, not to me) that has followed me through two different moves!

I won a judgement in civil court against someone. They moved and I need to find out where to, so I can have a motion sent to them to try and recover monies owed to me. The post office will not give it to me. I cannot afford a lawyer to do it for me. No point in sending it to the old address even though it will get forwarded as the court requires that I give them the actual physical address where he is now!!!! It is very frustrating. Does anyone have any suggestions, would the OPRA law allow me access to this info from the P.O. Please help! I even offered to show the post office all paper work of the judgement against him to no avail.

There are many on line search engines that can locate people for you. Most with a reasonable fee if the situation is that important to you. Type in the persons name you're seeking and all kinds of help will appear.
