How can I send a letter anonymously? Untraceable mail and anonymous letters can be sent through the mail by leaving the envelope without a return address and depositing it in a public physical box. These letters are collected by the post office and delivered to a certain post office department for scanning. The recipient cannot be tracked this way.
These methods are useful for sending confidential letters, such as love letters, or letters containing threats. The mail carrier has no way of knowing who the letter is from or what is inside the letter, so they have no reason to delay delivery. Also, cookies may be used to track letters that have been mailed with anonymous return addresses but were not mailed from within the United States.
Anonymous packages are also available at many shipping centers across the country. These packages look like any other package being shipped and require a signature upon delivery to receive postage. Care should be taken not to leave fingerprints in these packages.
Mail that is not registered with the U.S. Postal Service cannot be delivered to an actual address. It will be returned to the sender.
There are several websites that offer to ship items anonymously. While this may seem convenient, it provides no guarantee of delivery. Items sent electronically (such as email) may be intercepted by security software or hackers. Anonymity also does not protect you from court orders or search warrants.
You can address your message to "occupant" followed by an address to send mail to an anonymous recipient. The mail will be sent to that address, and whomever is present will be able to receive it. You can also use this method if you do not have a physical address for the person.
It is permissible to send anonymous letters through the mail. Threatening anonymous letters, on the other hand, is unlawful. If you ever get a threatening anonymous letter through email, public post, or other means, go to the local police station and register a report. Let them know about the letter and the information contained within it.
In addition, under California law, it is illegal for anyone to send false information regarding an attempt to kill or injure someone with the intent that the victim not be prosecuted for his/her own actions. This crime is known as "crimen non prosectūdeō."
Finally, under California law, it is also illegal for anyone to send false information intending that the victim be punished by imprisonment or executed. This crime is known as "attempted murder."
In conclusion, anonymous writing is perfectly legal as long as you don't break any laws in doing so. Anonymity allows people to speak their minds without fear of retribution from employers or others. It is your choice how far you want to take this privilege.
Snail mail is still a terrific way to send letters, but many of us use it so infrequently that we don't have any spare envelopes. You can transform your letter into its own envelope with a few smart folds, write the address on the reverse, place a stamp on it, and go. Very cool! Here's how:
Start by writing your letter on paper that is at least 5/8" thick. Use a black pen to print the address on the back of the sheet. Fold the sheet in half, matching the short edges together. Using a white pencil, lightly mark where you want the three corners to be on the outside edge of the sheet.
Open up the sheet again and fold it in half crosswise, making sure to keep the printed side inside. Now roll the sheet up like a cigarinieneck. When you get to the end, tuck the tail under itself and seal it with a bit of tape if necessary. Now you have an envelope!
To send your letter, simply drop it in the mailbox!
This method isn't as private as sending an actual letter, but it does allow you to show off a little sturdiness and style at the same time.
