Preventing Identity Theft using a Private Address

Secure Your Mail to Prevent Identity Theft

Protect your privacy. Prevent identify theft. Get a convenient, private personal mailing address. Keep your real residential address confidential.

Most identity theft begins with mail theft from unsecured letterboxes. Criminals collect enough information – bank account numbers, utility bills, etc – to be able to convince companies that they are you.  Often a financial disaster, it can take many months or even years to re-establish your real identity.  There’s one simple solution – let us give you an alternative mailing address and we will securely receive your mail and parcels.

Considering a PO Box? Don’t! The advantages of our Private Mailing Address Service over a PO Box are significant:  the legitimacy of a real street address, no need to be home to receive courier deliveries and, best of all, no long post office queues to retrieve your oversized items.

A personal private address gives you peace of mind.  No worrying about stolen mail or identify theft and parcel collection is at your convenience.

Would you just like to sign up over the phone?  No worries, just give us a call at 1300 478 778 weekdays, 9am – 5 pm, and we’ll get you activated!
