I managed to create an alternative identity, mortgage, bank account and even went to court in this bogus identity. It wasn't done for any criminal activity just personal needs at the time.

Which one did we meet for lunch? And which one is Prue married to?


Do tell.

We created a non existent address when we went full timing. We just stuck a post box on the outside of my mum's house and called it 15A, High Street, Nowhere. She lived at 15 High Street. It worked for nearly 3 years for everything including driving license, insurances, car tax etc etc. All our post went to that box. This would have been about 12 years ago. We didn't use her house because she would have lost her single occupancy discount on Council Tax and she had a thing about getting everything she was entitled to. She was also very nosy and I did not want her reading all our mail

All over and cancelled now Geoff.
When we reached a certain age I started tidying up loose ends to make it easier if one dropped off the perch.

The FSA licensed a twice convicted fraudster to handle our life´s savings. Guess what? He robbed us of £750,000. http://raynipper.com

What an ingenious solution! How often did you collect? Or was it a very big box?!

'Full Timers' have to be ingenious for things like that Jean. So much easier now with more and more communications online. We had to have a mail forwarding and registration address in the states but they are well geared up to accommodate all the nomads.

I agree, for our journey to the USA it was no Problem getting an Adresse ( postbox) forwarding mail , service, bank account or insurance.
All a lot easier then in the UK or Australia for that matter.

Finally heard back about that 'no cooking' clause. Of course they do mean no selling, but geez they could have written it better.

The excess is £350, plus £50 for it being LHD, plus £150 for being a foreigner = total £550! Lucky I found an alternative.

It was a fairly big box, Jean, but mostly I cancelled everything I could and, of course, as we had no house, we had no bills etc! Our tenants kept any post that went to the house.
