    you should be able to buy a PO box address. That's normally discreet. The other alternative is to buy virtual address whereby the mail that is sent to the address you buy is then forwarded to your real address. The sender of course will not know your real address.

    You can go to the nearest postal office and ask them if you can open a post office box or tell them that you want to receive a mail and if its ok to ask the sender to write only your name and the address of the postal office. This should solve your issue.
    Good luck!

    Later edit: if these don't work you can approach an old-aged neighbour and tell him that you are participating on a promotion and you've already ordered an ex:100 sterling pound voucher on your address and you want to order another one but as they do not allow multiple mails on the same address you ask him to help you for a small bonus from your side.

    I don't know whether it is economical for receiving a letter, but I have used forward2me.com before and it went all well. That was to forward the package from the UK to my address in a different country though.

    PO Box registered to already bankrupt company, or you can also bribe someone to put fake address and name into the forms...it's not a felony, more like a mistake, small bribe should do the trick. Just get creative :)

    I recently was in the same situation there is two options.

    The first is the PO Box, I couldn't find one in my area so I went with option number 2.

    The second is a delivery method called Collect Plus. The seller of the item needs to use this delivery. I managed to convince the seller to use Collect Plus. It basically allows you to find a local shop, such as a CO-OP or many other shops. You choose the shop closest to you, the seller prints of a label, sticks it on the parcel, the parcel then gets delivered to that shop and you can collect it. All of their deliveries are tracked.

    You didn't mention that being a problem before, sounds like you are trying to do something illegal ?
