I have learned that a certain group within the Feds has a new set of rules pertaining to mailing sensitive information.

Part of the rules state that if a document or any information sent includes sensitive data, like a client name, then it has to be double-wrapped and sent.

In addition there is a form that has to be filled out in duplicate and sent with the package. One copy is kept and filed by the receiving party and the other is signed and returned as proof of receipt.

Now the fun part: The copy that is returned has the client name on it. (1) This means that it has to be double wrapped and sent back. It also means it has to have two copies of the same form sent with it, one for filing and one to be returned to the sender for proof of receipt.

Of course, this returned copy has the clients name on it....

Please return to note (1) above and loop.

I may be a standard male but I want to post a first class response to express my opinion. We should stamp out this type of thing and they should take their licks. It should be a priority. They're pushing the envelope with the letter of the law here. I may go postal if this keeps up since it's weighing on me. Let them stand up and deliver or cancel it. Yes, I'm PO'ed and trying to think outside the box. This is not heaven sent and it doesn't rate. They're all wet from the postage dew. They can stick it. I'm going back to domestic carrier pigeons.

LOL.. That doesn't surprise me, the government will do their best to find the most inefficient way possible to accomplish something simple.

Ah, but remember... This is the government here. If they're telling you something are they really telling you anything?
