Should i pay £1.90? Or leave it?Page 2 of 3    (1, 2, 3)
On saturday morning whilst sorting my mail out on the bog, i read a delivery note off the postman saying there were 3 letters down the depot needing my paw print. I thought hmm wasnt expecting anything off the net etc. Then i read down more.

the letters had no stamps etc, so i had to pay the £1.90 to read them!

im thinking who would send letters without postage?

has this happened to you?

would you let curiousaty get the better and pay? Bearing in mind they require a paw print or im i paranoid?

edit, msg3 dont all large firms and government agencies have mail franked? I know its not light bulbs as postie just leaves them in me porch.

edit 2 think you have to pay just to see who the sender is scints, if indeed there is a return addy.

The 1.90 is not the problem, its the thought of who would want to post something to me knowing they havent stamped/franked it. I know its not from anyone i know as they know im on a stick and would be real inconveniance, thinking about that, it could be someone being a twat!

edit might remind the postie about xmas nats lol your sitting outside my flat labdien lol never get any cards for my birthday sj lmao

Maybe its 3 love letters from an ex girlfriend who has fallen on hard times and couldn't afford the stamps?

Ive had this loads off DVLA when i had a lot of communication with them about my license being revoked for medical reasons and my subsequent appeal and later medical to get it back. Out of 9 letters they sent me, 4 had no postage on them and had to be collected.

Wouldnt surprise me if its a deliberate money saver for certain government agencys.

I resent paying it anyway and even more resent the fact that most of the cost is the stupid "handling charge" robbed by royal mail. Pathetic when you consider that if your not at home for a signed for letter/parcel, they dont charge you a penny to collect it at sorting office yet for unpaid mail they are charging you money for doing the same thing on top of the postage - not forgetting that said letter hasnt been in the delivery van to and from house before ending up at sorting office for you.

Can finally put the subject at rest lol went down the main sorting office with me piece of paper, handed it over to the postie who came back with 3 plain envelopes, no return addy or nothing to say who its from. I asked the postie what he thought and he agreed with me that it was prob junk. I asked where they gonna send it and he said it gets sent to ireland, where they open it lol

such a big anti-climax!!

I knew the forum was waiting with baited breath and none of you were sleeping at night.

i did save 1.90 but went to sainsburys next door and overspent a bit lol but always wonder what was in those letters .... It could of been 583 quid or a blonde haired polish girl offering her body with her 2 cousins joining in at weekends ... But ive thrown it away!

edit, well swedish would be better nats, as when im finished i can fold them up and put in the cupboard next to the ironing board! Lol

Ive a lot of time for the post service aitche, and they earn there money and some more. There jobs have been mucked around with plus facing job cuts to. Ive a friend who works as a postie and always goes the extra yard for those on his round if he can. People dont realise how much works involved but they do face competition from the net but also business from it to.
