What do you do if someone is using your address and you don't want them to? (Ex specifically)

What do you do when someone is using your mailing address and they don't live with you? My ex-boyfriend once stayed with me when he had no other address. For a very short time I allowed him to get mail from his family here. However, we set the rules- family stuff only- and they sent it c/o my name.

Apparently he is continuing to use this address, not with his family, but with lawyers, the police (I accidentally opened something today without noticing it wasn't for me… it was from the transit authority… the moron skipped a turnstyle and has to go to court), hospitals… you get the picture.

Normally, I do not open his mail (today was a total mistake), I just write "Return to sender. No such tenant." But is there something else I can do? Besides the nasty reminders of the worst relationship I ever had, I'm wondering if he can establish some sort of residency this way?

Anyone work for the post office? I dread telling them my story? Do I have to?

Anyway, I am trying really hard, broke up with him in January. Don't talk to him, or answer his emails (have had to block his name).

Any advice?

I would defantly advice going down to the post office and telling them that you would no longer like to get mail from such and such that he doesnt live there anymore. Thats the only thing that I know to do.

If you have his current address I would give it to them.

Hi Randomwomen,

The problem is that the mail is from all different places. Can they stop sending mail TO a person?

He has no current address. He is on the street I think. That is why he does this in part. I get all the unwanted bills, legal stuff etc.

Just went to the PO web site and sent in an inquiry.

But I would still like to hear from anyone who has dealt with this experience personally and what you did about it.

Hi Ella,

I agree with Random and would contact the post office. Yes, they can stop all mail from coming to your house. Normally one would fill out a change of address form for themselves and put a new address but perhaps if you explained your situation…they take care of it for you.

It's worth a shot.
