Default USPS in action

Well this has started off like a story from hell. The post office delivered my certified mail application to the wrong zip code in Atlanta. Went to a general box for Bank of America.

I think I'm Fd.

I don't fully understand what happened here. Can you explain further? I'm a little "slow".

I sent it certified to the ATF post box on the application, Zip Code 30384.

They delivered it to Zip Code 30348. That got it in the general mail box for
Bank of America, Atlanta.

I can see identity theft in my future if it's opened and not rerouted.

Post office can't/won't track it once it's sign for even if misdirected. They hope
Bank of America will redirect it. I will just have to wait and see if credit card is charged the $30 dollars in the next weeks then hope for the best and try again.
Identity theft and credit card fraud are what worries me.

Another reason to use Fed X.

The issue is the POBox. FedEX does not go there. Another participant on another site had his 01 app signed for by a BOA agent. I am finding out it happens often. Large quantities of mail for BOA and the Gov't go through
the same bulk sort area in the post office. Bank signs for and absorbs many
ATF incoming mailings.

Just great!

[QUOTE=lilguy;582314]The issue is the POBox. FedEX does not go there.

I fixed that when I had a Box at the UPS store I never wrote Box # 265. I just put Suite # or just # 265.
Now that might work in this case if not your no worse than you are now.

The problem is ATF's Pobox. They have dozens of street addresses but Licenses
have to be sent to the Atlanta PObox and that's where the mix up occurs.
