I can show you a couple of direct "lotto winning" snail mail scam parcels
I have received - one to my home address and another to my office address,
one from an australian postel address and the other, I don't remember.
The amazing thing was that the 2nd one was almost within a few months
after me joining my current position.
Now you know why I am a bit paranoid on throwing my real address around.
I am not worried about local stalkers, but about clever global fraudsters.
