Missing Letter Monday No X – Slightly Disturbing

Published December 11, 2017 by Iphis of Scyros

Or maybe more than slightly.  I’m not sure yet.

So, I get home today, get my mail, and start looking through it.

I find a postcard with a passcode on it, addressed to someone I’ve never heard of.  I think, “Oh, they sent me someone else’s mail again.”  (Right before the cold weather hit, I had to walk half a block to deliver someone’s package that got put on my porch by mistake!)

Then I check the address and see that it’s at the right address, just addressed to someone who doesn’t live here.

And the passcode, on looking at it more closely, claims to be a requested one, to grant access to the website of the neighborhood association of my subdivision.




Seriously, what’s going on here?  The name it’s addressed to is a really, really weird one.  Like, I can’t even tell what linguistic tradition it hails from.

I want to say “yeah, it’s just some scam,” but it doesn’t make any sense if it is.  The login the passcode is supposed to grant requires a pre-inputted e-mail address and password, so it’s not like it’s a snail mail phishing scam.  And yet, what else could it be?

(Though the weirdest part, to me, is the fact that next to the passcode is written that it stops working after three days.  Um, yeah, the USPS is not that reliable that you could count on it arriving before it’s useless.  Especially not in December.)

I’m thinking my best bet here is to write “Return to Sender; Wrong Address” on it and drop it in the slot at the post office.

Anyone else have better ideas?

    • That’s a good idea; I hadn’t thought of that. There isn’t a return address on it, so I couldn’t have sent it back after all, but if someone’s trying something shifty through the mail, the postal service should at least be aware of it, even if they can’t necessarily do anything about it. I’ll look into where to send it tomorrow. Thanks for the suggestion. 🙂
