Not sure, but would a regular PO Box work? I would think also if they were addressed to seller c/o such and such LLC that should be okay. If a business can own a box at Etc., would seem pretty tough to have all employees come in and get approved.

All, I have a number of subject to rentals where the mortgage companies send correspondence (monthly statements) to me in the name of the original borrower. I changed their address to my Mailbox Etc. address but they are returning them due to the name of the borrower not matching the mailbox owner. This appears to be a policy issue with Mailbox Etc. stating that all persons who receive mail at my box must submit 2 forms of ID and complete a form. Well that’s difficult to say the least since these borrowers are long gone. Also, I’m having a problem purchasing additional houses and don’t want to use my personal address.

Anyone figured out a way around this?

I’m not sure what you are investing in but I own a number of multi-family apts…I always ad an extra mailbox to the building and give it a number …then that becomes my address after all it is my property. Also you’ll get anything sent to that address no matter whoes name is on it because it will be a residential address. If I only had a duplex I would add a mailbox and put my address as:
Mrs Me
1234 Street
Lower Level
City, State 54321

This is a new USPS rule that was enacted a little over a year ago.All of the Private Mail Box centers have to follow this new rule so that means that if they are not on the list of properly identified people that is listed to receive mail at that mail box then it will be returned as UNDELIVERABLE.
This Sucks but they felt that they had to do it to help stop the people that are using a PMB for frauding others at all of the Legit peoples expense.I wonder how effective that this will be towards Stopping Fraud?

If that one gets you going then read this:

Dear A-Letter Reader:
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again. The old saying is: “Figures
don’t lie, but liars do figure.”

The US Treasury’s success at cracking down on alleged offshore tax
dodging was called into serious question this week after it was revealed
that a much-touted amnesty program has recovered less than $1 million
in unpaid taxes.

Equally embarrassing to the Internal Revenue Service, in 2000 the agency
officially estimated that 505,000 US persons had unreported offshore
bank accounts. But only 1,299 taxpayers fessed up as of June 30, and of
$3.3 million assessed in unpaid taxes, the IRS has collected just
$744,546 – at a huge cost of $56 million in administrative expenses.

Deja vue all over again; the usual effective government, IRS style.

It hardly inspires confidence when America’s tax collection agency
consistently plays fast and loose with numbers in their phony PR
campaigns to scare taxpayers. Example: the IRS admitted in testimony
before Congress last November they were able to show only 82,100
taxpayers had unreported offshore accounts, not the 505,000 claimed.

The IRS numbers game is exposed further when one compares the less
than $1 million amnesty collection with spurious IRS past claims,
to wit: in May 2001 the IRS, demanding federal subpoenas for
thousands of offshore credit card accounts, claimed offshore tax
evasion costs the government $20 billion to $40 billion in 2000 alone!

This entire propaganda exercise in Big Brother newspeak is aimed at
curbing the legal rights of Americans to have offshore bank and
investment accounts. The IRS hates to have anyone beyond their greedy
grasp. Thus “offshore” has become the IRS punching bag, and a juicy
source of publicity from a complicit, unquestioning news media.

That’s the way that it looks from here.
