Camgirl seeks mail forwarding service to protect her location.

I'm a camgirl ("adult model") and I have clients who enjoy sending me things (lingerie, toys, the like). For obvious reasons I don't want my location to be revealed, so just getting a PO Box in my city really isn't enough for me. I would imagine that there are middleman services that allow people to send mail to a "fake" address which would then forward on to their real address. I found Aloha Forwarding but they only seem to ship outside the contiguous US... any other ideas? Thank you so much! (Anon for the same above-mentioned obvious reasons.)

Good Mail Scanning/Forwarding Service from US to Ireland/Rest of World?

Several years ago, I used US Global Mail with success, but while their monthly rates are still low, their individual services are priced at a rate that seems to add up quickly. I won't be using this extensively, just for banking and credit cards primarily. I'll probably want them to open and scan a few things per month and perhaps forward a few things on once or twice per month. I don't foresee using it for shopping or to receive packages and send on packages or anything like that. Money is an object; I need to not spend loads of cash on this, but I do need a place that is reliable. I am doing my own research, of course, and I found this thread, but it's more than three years old, and as it turns out, the mail forwarding business changes quickly! So, do you have experiences/recommendations, positive or negative, with US-based mail forwarding services, particularly if you are out of the country? Based on my requirements, is there a particular service that you know of that would be the perfect fit for me?

Should my mail come on vacation with me?

We will be in another state for the month of August, and are trying to decide whether to have our mail forwarded to the place we'll be staying (a home) or collected by a friend and held for us until our return. There's no issue of bills coming due, since we pay those online, nor any other urgent missives we'd have to worry about. [more inside]
