To have maybe watched too much Breaking Bad...but worry about this important letter with nothing in

With the post today was a letter, addressed to my initials, with a huge first class stamp, and recorded delivery. Someone definitely wanted me to get this letter.

Inside it was an old, crumpled, folded up estate agent leaflet. Nothing written on it.

Has someone just attempted to kill me? I don't feel unwell. Was there ricin I didn't see?! Or have I watched too much Breaking Bad?

That's pretty random! Have you ever had any dealings with that estate agent?

Jewels234 Tue 02-Dec-14 21:24:11

Nope, nothing. It's for my area though. Can you track who has sent signed for post?

Fabulous46 Tue 02-Dec-14 21:26:00

Signed for post normally has a sticker on the back with the postcode of the sender as well as the name.

MinceSpy Tue 02-Dec-14 21:28:16

Search the name and postcode

An ex you house hunted with?

MagpieCursedTea Tue 02-Dec-14 21:32:06

Maybe someone wants to buy your house?
Have you looked on the inside of the envelope? Maybe something got stuck to it or they've written on there? clutches at straws

I have tracked it. It was sent from just round the corner from where I live. Also, it is in an envelope that has been opened and resealed. Postage cost them £1.72, so there was definitely more than a leaflet in there originally.

Did you have to sign for it? Could someone just have re-used the envelope and stuck a stamp on when they sent it to you?

(Doesn't answer why they sent you a leaflet, but at least makes it a bit less sinister...)

MagpieCursedTea Tue 02-Dec-14 22:21:05

I'd call the post office in the morning and explain the situation, sounds like whatever else was in there has been lost/stolen.

Gunpowder Tue 02-Dec-14 22:22:49

Unless someone else's urgent letter got your second class stamp?

Gunpowder Tue 02-Dec-14 22:23:30

Sorry just saw opened and resealed. shock

LittlePhobia Tue 02-Dec-14 22:45:00

Oh how weird.

Jewels234 Tue 02-Dec-14 22:54:44

Definitely not an old track and trace...Sent yesterday.

What makes it weirder is that I moved here 3 weeks ago. Very few people know my new address.

Also, agree that it could have been something stolen...but I'm not expecting anything, and especially not something from half a mile away from my house (I.e. I haven't forgotten about an eBay purchase)

LittlePhobia Tue 02-Dec-14 22:57:42

If it's an estate agent leaflet could it be linked to your move? <scrapes barrel>

MagpieCursedTea Wed 03-Dec-14 10:44:41

Have you spoken to the post office today? I need closure on this mystery! grin

SavoyCabbage Wed 03-Dec-14 10:50:22

So, let's list the suspects people who have your new address.

Is the estate agents the one you used for your move?

OnlyLovers Wed 03-Dec-14 10:52:08

Ooooh how mysterious!

But yes, possibly there was something else in the envelope that's been stolen or mixed up, with the intended contents going to someone else.

Or it could be ricin, bitch. grin

DIY fingerprinting techniques. You might guess at man or woman.

Littleturkish Wed 03-Dec-14 10:53:54

Definitely contact post office.

Sounds very dodgy.

RonaldMcDonald Wed 03-Dec-14 11:00:53

sounds like something my mum might do when she is on her pain meds

fit any of your relatives modus operandi?

otherwise get your affairs in order.....

Jackie0 Wed 03-Dec-14 11:08:17

Report this to the post office.
I don't like the sound of this at all. Some one now has proof that you received this mail. It some sort of scam, I can't figure it out but it's not nothing .

Castlemilk Wed 03-Dec-14 11:19:39

That is dodgy.

It sounds as if someone wanted proof that they'd posted something at that value, on that day. Ebay? Someone proving they'd posted the iPhone or whatever at that weight, then removing it?

However that doesn't fit as it wouldn't be to your address... Hmm.

Your best bet is go to PO and ask them - it sounds like some kind of scam.

grocklebox Wed 03-Dec-14 11:24:46

New house card with money or a voucher inside? Sounds like its been opened and the contents stolen.

LotsaTuddles Wed 03-Dec-14 11:29:17

That is very weird and would probably freak me out a bit too.

But, I now really need to know
