I mention a number ways to do this, in How to be Invisible, but today, a reader from Dallas, Texas came up with a brilliant new idea. It was just a post to my Q&C page but I decided you readers would also appreciate this brilliant ploy. Here's the post, word for word:
"I like to order catalogs, product information, brochures, etc. online and have them sent to my CMRA address. I don't want my real name on any mailing lists, but I don't want to use several different alternate names, which might make the CMRA agent wonder what's going on (since I am only supposed to have mail in my real name delivered there). My solution for this is that when I am filling out an online form for these items, in place of my first name and last name, I use a generic 'junk mail' name with two words that will replace my first and last name.
"Examples: Current Resident, Valued Customer, Box Holder. The CMRA agent has no problem with this and I get all of the mail. If I move and decide to forward the mail that is only in my real name, the 'junk' mail won't follow me, but will be returned to the sender. Also, if I want to toss the information in the trash, I don't have to worry about my name being on it and have it being picked up by a passerby."
