    The royal mail people are opening peoples mail in search for money. People have been moaning at school today that they lost money. Even though some of them were people i do not like. I still think it would be best to warn people. Be wary of sending money via mail at this time of year.

    This is nothing new, the problem is made worse by the fact a lot of post men are in fact temp staff these days.

    If you're sending money via mail cheques are the best way.

    They've actually opened the letter and taken the money, then left the envelope open. Fools.

    Also, don't send cats by airmail.

    Things can get pretty chilly up there.

    I don't think anyone in their right mind would send £ by mail surely?

    Cheques and postal orders are a little bit safer really!

    I tried sending it to the vets', it had a problem. By the time it got there, it had a much bigger problem.

    ie, that it was dead.

    Hehe.

    Incidently, wasn't 'never send money by post' one of the first things everyone learns when their parents/primary school teachers tell them about the mail system...

    It's slow and completely unnecessary anyway.

    When I was at boarding school, I asked my mother to send me food in the form of a "tuck parcels". She contemptuously sent me a biscuit with her next letter. :mad: :mad:

    When I received it (she lived and worked in another country ), it had been converted to a fine powder...:mad: :eek: :mad:
