  • You can refuse, and legally they aren't allowed to put why, but sometimes they will anyway if you ask nicely. If it's really not for you, make sure you have them indicate it's the wrong address.

  • By all means you can refuse, but the person who sent it will know that you refused because the postman will check a box that says you refused versus the box that says you were not available. Depending on what it is for there are other legal ways to ensure delivery that cost more and may end up coming out of your pocket in the long run anyway.

  • You can,, but it won't go away,, depending on what it is, the next step could be a deputy showing up with a court order, and that you can't refuse,, better to deal with whatever it is.

  • I believe the postal worker marks a box on it stating that you refused it and it's sent back to the sender.

  • If it has to do with a judgement against you the courts may end up using a process server and you may end up having to pay for that.

  • Yes, they just send it back refused.
