lol, no. I have no idea about it, i throw away junk mail all the time without opening it. I seriously doubt anyone would go through the trash to see if there is unopened mail in there. She is just worried, and I have no idea whether it is illegal to throw away junk mail without opening it. It is stupid in my opinion, but she wants to know.
Recently, a cousin of mine was told by a mail carrier that not opening your own mail, and just throwing it away, was illegal. He told her you HAVE to open any mail addressed to you. Is this true? The reason it came up was because he handed her some mail one day, and she just immediately threw away some junk mail that was addressed to her. Thanks for any answers for this!
