PO Boxes are a great tool for recieving contraband. Personally, I have opened a few boxes for myself under a variety of pseudonyms over the years. My favorite was a box whose boxholder's name were "Norton Leight", PO Box 5
You probably can't get PO Boxes under assumed names like I can, because you need photo ID. What you do not need is a driver's license, a state ID card is just fine and easier to obtain. I don't suggest you use any type of identity theft to procure this or the PO Box, because this is what the Postal Inspectors are going after most feverantly right now. However you can get it, get a state ID card with an assumed name. The next item you want to have is a piece of mail going to an assumed street address. This is often very useful if you can't get any "regular" photo ID. Clerks often times will allow private sector photo ID's such as a business's id badge, but in that case they want a letter going to your "street address". Obviously you don't want to use your real street address. The letter has to be round-dated or otherwise cancelled. There are two easy ways to get this.
First off, I'd suggest you find the address you want to use. Public buildings, vacant houses, etc are great for this. Make out your professionally printed or otherwise professional-looking letter, and take it into a post office OTHER than the one you want the PO Box at. There's two ways to get it cancelled and back to you. First and safest is to just give it to the clerk and ask for it to be round-dated right then and there so you're certain it will be accepted on time (say it's a credit card bill, etc). Once it's round dated, act like you're mad at yourself for not enclosing the check or something of that sort. 9 out of 10 times you'll get it back from them. Just walk out at that point. Tell them you forgot your checkbook or whatever if they ask. Most likely, they won't ask.
The second and more risky method is to go into a very small rural office, where there is usually only one person in the office at any given time. Make up a reason to get them to look in the back of the office. A good excust for this is to get indignint about your social security check not arriving yet. Even though they go back, they're probably just getting coffee or blowing you off. We know when they arrive, we don't lose them, whatever. Just get him out of the way. There will be a round-dater stamp by his window console. Use it. Use it real quick. Even if you're on camera, the picture will be so horrible that you will NOT be identified. The tapes they use are 24 hour tapes and have horrible quality, and are re-used on top of that.
Once you have the PO Box, subscribe to a couple regular magazines or get a few typical catalogs delivered there regularly so that everything seems legit. When you check your box, regularly make an issue to look inside to see if there is a piece of paper hanging from the back of the box. On the two occasions I've been told to keep track of names and addresses going to a box, the inspectors have a "cover" placed on the box, a piece of paper hung from the back informing the box clerk to write down this information. Papers are often hung just saying the boxholder's names, so you need to make sure you recognise the paper hung from the back. Pull the paper off the first time you see it. It's normal for them to fall off, so don't sweat this.
Don't check your box at regular intervals. Do it on an odd schedule. Small rural offices often have box lobbies that are open 24 hours a day. Take advantage of this. Driving in the dark lets you know if you're being tailed, and you can mix up the hours you check the box this way. If you're going to get pinched, they will usually follow you to the box when they know you're going to open it, then they pop you then and there. Once, a kiddie porn trader got pinched from using a box in my office. They knew exactly when he would be checking his box. He drove in from halfway across the state a couple times a week on business and checked the box at a regular time. He was stupid, and not just for trading disgusting kiddie porn.
They kept his box opened for months and months, using it to bring down people worldwide. Make sure coorespondants of yours know if you get pinched. Create a way to let them know. Let them know whenever something is going to be sent to them. If it's out of schedule, they know to clean house. Just be more careful than you need to be.
PO Boxes are great. I always get my contraband there, and I'd suggest you use them to your advantage.
Sorry it's so long winded, I just hope it helps someone out there.
