Did you know that you could receive your paper mail online with mailbox services? When mail arrives, this company will scan the envelope then you control what happens with your mail after that. You can tell them to open it and scan the contents or shred them or have it sent to your physical address. This would be a great asset for people who travel a lot. Mailbox Forwarding will screen all of your mail, including letters, documents and packages. The cost is $9.95 per month, which isn't that much if you're traveling the globe and are expecting an important document. The online account you have will be a secure online account and this company has high security standards so that your information will be kept confidential. You get to decide if they just forward the unopened envelope to you, no matter where you are in the world. They will only open and scan your mail once you have given them permission to do so. The staff is monitored at all times and trained to never leave documents out for longer than it takes for the scanning process. As I said, I think that this would be a great service for people who travel a lot and never know what their schedule is going to look like.
