Mail is a huge problem when we are away from home for months at a time.  

We are lucky that we have someone that will pick up our mail and place it into a container till we get home.  The problem is a bill or notice can be missed and we have to pay a penalty.  Paying a late fee or interest is like taking a dollar bill and catching it on fire as we gain nothing by this fee.

The US Post Office has created a new service that might help us a lot.  Informed delivery by USPS that sends a scanned copy of the envelope to our email.  This system is not perfect but it does send out copies of a lot of our mail. While we have been home for the holidays I have been watching what we receive in an email compared to what arrives in the mail box.  Some days everything has been scanned and other days maybe half of the mail received was scanned.  

Images of our mail are only on letter sized envelopes and have to be processed through the USPS automated equipment.  All mail that is scanned this way will send a copy of the front of the envelope to our email address daily. 

I hope in time that we receive a copy of everything that is mailed to us but until then this is a great start.  The link to get this started for you is below:

ALL THANKS TO UPSTART LOAN AM NOW FINANCIALLY STABLE . upstartloan@yahoo.com
I am Michelle Huxford from Casper, Wyoming. I was in a very chronic financial issue and terminal health situation some few weeks back. After all my search for assistance from friends and neighbors proved abortive, I feel there was no one who truly cares. I became so emaciated due to lack of good food and my 2 kids age 5 and 8 were not also good looking due to lack of proper care as a result of finance. One faithful morning I saw an old time friend of my late husband and I told him all I have been going through and he said the only way he could help was to direct me to a good loan agency that also helped him, He explained to me on how he was financially down and how he got boosted by this loan agency UPSTART LOAN INC ( upstartloan@yahoo.com ) who grant him 245,000 USD loan at an affordable rate. He further assured me that they were the only legit loan firm he found in the quest of seeking for loan after been scammed by various fake loan lenders online. He gave me their email: upstartloan@yahoo.com or text/call (574) 301-1639, That was how i applied and was also granted a loan and my life changed for the good. CONTACT THE ONLY GENUINE LENDERS( UPSTART LOAN INC) VIA email: upstartloan@yahoo.com or call +1 (574) 301-1639 to resolve your financial mess.

My name is KARLA LOVELL from Texas in the USA. For a very long time, i was deep into financial mess untill a friend of mine told me about CONSUMER LOAN FIRM and how she was helped by the company with an Xmas loan at a very low interest rate of 2% and better repayment schedule.She further stressed that they can help me out of my financial difficulties too.Though i never believed her because i have tried lots of BANKS/CREDIT lenders who could not help me out because of my poor credit score.She advised i should give it a try to be convinced,so i mailed them via consumerloanfirm@gmail.com .Behold it went well and after my explanation, they took me through the loan process and granted me the $67,000,00 as applied with ease on 26th of October 2017, i have a business of mine and my xmas bills became very much easy.
