I mail bills every month.Do people really fall for that? My bet is the biggest buyer are old or people who don't leave their homes and that the sellers know that. In the age of email we rarely mail anything but I would NEVER put it out in the box. I take it to the post office and if I need stamps, buy them then.
OK has a real problem with mail carriers being lazy or downright criminals. We have had to report ours several times and I know we aren't the only ones. It doesn't matter how much mail you put out for pickup unless they have more than 3 items to leave, they won't be making the walk. We don't take the chance and drop ours in a public box.I mail bills every month.
They get picked up from my curbside rural style mailbox.
But I buy stamps at the post office...
