Strange People at my address???

Why would I be receiving mail addressed to people I do not know?
Unfamiliar name with my current address that have never lived here.
I have checked with PO and they have no idea.
I have received about three in the 18 months I have lived here.
Most are Credit Card Offers
It's no big deal----I just wonder how many of you receive this type mail

Giles - I would check my credit reports to make sure someone hasn't hijacked your ID.


If I could only remember to THINK about what I was doing before I did it.

I get magazines for someone with my last name and my address. These are not cheap magazines (Rolling Stone, ESPN etc.) I have lived here 19 years and don't know this person. Can't find any local listings for them either. I know the person who lived here for 17 years before us and she doesn't know this other person either. I got some when I first bought this place and they quit. A few months ago, they started again. Doesn't make any sense.
