It's really not any safer than using your own address. Unless you can get one without an ID, then the cops will get you if they want to.

i never understood the logic behind this- i mean you have to show valid i.d. at the post office, soooo what the dif? theres always risk no matter how you go about it..

yeah i use one. Your right it isnt much safer. I had to show 2 forms of id to get one too so it would be hard to use a fake name. The only reason I use it really is because I dont want anybody else in my home opening my mail or to even know that i am receiving "packages".

The difference is the secrecy of the addy. Maybe someone still lives at home or their significant other doesnt know they juice. I have a PMB which is an actual physical addy.

that makes sense as far as keeping your usage a secret from the ones you may live with. other than that i see no benifit.

where so backwards in australia our postal system delivers packages to your door -if your not home and theres no history of parcel theft in your street he leaves it in your doorstep -no ****- if its the cops they knock and knock till you open if you dont open they will come back the next day -if you then recieve the package by sighning for it they have the authority then to raid your premises so i put a fake name and when the cops came one day and were adamant i sign for it i said it wasnt my name and it must have got sent to the wrong address -they then had no legal right to search my premises

I get one with my real name on it. I make sure to ask for the name of the last person who had the box. Also ask if he has a new address so you don't get his mail. If he doesn't.... i send all my **** to the box with his name on it.

Well if you have a pobox that is open 24/7 you can go in there not during postal hours and u do not have to show id when u take your gear out of the po box. Always make sure you get a big enough box to fit packages too

any advice on using a place like Mailboxes Etc. for a p.o. box vs getting one at the post office..
