What an ingenious idea - someone going to try it then?
Dont think that will work over here in the UK.
Usually only ever have 1st or 2nd pre-paid envelopes in junk mail...could always curl one out and send it back.
It's only for some out our idiotic cousins across the big pond.
Funny idea although unlikely to work over here
It works better when you dont use the pre-paid envelope, and just write the companys' head office address on the parcel.
Oops, I typed that out loud?
Yea doesn't the recipient have to folk for the postage costs? Sweet.
I had a long dispute over around £50 that I owed to a phone company. After about 6 months I gave up and just sent them a cheque. To show my displeasure, I put a fairly large amount of salt in the envelope with the cheque. My dad warned me someone at the company might sue me due to a salt related injury but I felt I should stand up for what I believe in and left the salt in the envelope. About 5 days later, I had a letter from the company saying that they had received the cheque but had also decided to drop the dispute and offer me a refund of the cheque!
Salt. Wins all arguments.
I hate all the 'To the occupier' stuff that th Royal Mail deliver to prop themselves up, so I write expletives on it and put it back in the post.
I do much the same with other junk, especially things like credit card applications with those envelopes. I don't stick extra stuff in, it's enough of a pain for them to get an application form full of useless info.
A friend of mine returns the envelopes with gravel inside - but not the charity ones I should point out, except Oxfam.
