Protect deceased USPS customers change of address information from future mail solicitors
This petition had 35 supporters
After the death of my mom in April, I went to the Post Office to complete a Change of Address, routing her mail to my home, giving me the ability to finalize my mom's affairs, by notifying all of her contacts.
The reason for the change was clearly written on the form, and within days, I started receiving my mom's mail, with the yellow COA label affixed. Days later, NEW mail from retailers like, Home Depot, Pottery Barn, JCPenny, & Culpeper Hearing Center arrived, with my mom's name on their own label. All of whom my mom was NEVER associated with.
At this rate, if the names of deceased postal customers are not purged from their roster before it's sold or exchanged, grieving family members will forever receive mail for their deceased loved one, adding to the heartbreak & stress.
The arrival of this new batch of mail is extremely disturbing, stressful and sad. Information of deceased postal customers should never be sold or exchanged to solicitors.
This is a practice that must end. Please respect the dead and their grieving family members!
