For that kind of thing - from my personal experience - I would recommend private outlet mailboxes - I was using them when I used to do some business with p.o. boxes in States way back in 2000.

It's a WHOLE different situation when your reiceving Foo-foo items, you should have described that earlier in your post. In the beginning it seems that you were using it for legitimate purposes but now your talking about seizures...

Does anyone know, if the post office really sends back mail that is addressed to someone who isn't on that particular PO BOX?

I made up 6 names, and she wouldn't let me add anyone but myself and 1 called "rma returns" ? I mean wtf, i may as well makeup ⊗⊗⊗⊗ business names, those are ok...

I use the UPS store addresses plenty to receive packages, you don't even need to rent a box, just talk to the manager or owner and tell him you want to receive packages here and there, they will hold them at the front desk for you, and charge like 5-10$ a package which is reasonable, depends on the owner or worker at the place, you can get away with packages coming under different company names.

Worked for UPS part time. You can use any business name you would like, they should be picky. Just tell them you'll have different names coming in to this box. There are plenty of reasons why this could be happening.

As mentioned above, talk to the owner and ask if you can have packages delivered without a box. We charged $2/package and less if you got a lot.

Good luck

Another easy option. Just register the names as d/b/a's (usually, this is done at the county level). You CAN be Bob Smith d/b/a Adam Wexler if you want to.

DBAs, LLCs, all these work for different names.

I know this is a old thread, but opening a DBA is another cost added in. What is a good excuse to use for different names coming in to the ups mailbox?

Instead of trying to open a Box at the Post office, try a check cashing place or any other Ma & Pa place that offers P.O. Box, they might be more lenient in using a business name for the Box.

I do this with UPS, I dont have any problems. I receive about 10-20 packages a month no problems with these guys. I like it a lot because DHL delivers at these business locations A LOT earlier than residential addresses.

Names doesnt matter to them here it seems they only care that it has your box number on it.

A lot of locations definitely care about names and WILL hassle you.. You can add as many business names as you want though.

That is extremely far away for most people and not really a solution. They do not have dozens of facilities in each city like USPS.
