Who are we?

You’ve heard of ‘Who Called Me’ websites for looking up telephone numbers?

Welcome to ‘Who Wrote Me’ for looking up business envelopes!

Use the details on the outside of the envelope to discover what might be inside.

Handy if you’d like to know what some post could be about without being able to open it.

Because you do realise that opening post in somebody else’s name, even where you might now own the property, is considered an offence under the Postal Services Act, and I quote: “(3)A person commits an offence if, intending to act to a person’s detriment and without reasonable excuse, he opens a postal packet which he knows or reasonably suspects has been incorrectly delivered to him”, not to mention Data Protection [GDPR] implications.

So, no more holding envelopes up to the light. No more steaming open the seal. No more bending the the address window to try and see inside.

Suspicious parent or family member? Nosy neighbour? Private Investigator? Researcher? Whatever your purpose, this may just be a handy resource for you.

I created this website around 2016, quite randomly late one night when I had the idea. It was quick to set up by using a simple WordPress site and template. Since then, its growth is completely organic by search engines doing their thing, and has peaked at around 30,000 visitors a month.

The majority of postal item entries on the website is based upon post that I have personally received, since I need to obtain the data from somewhere. I do have a submission form to crowdsource postal items from yourselves – the visitors to the site – but sadly this doesn’t receive much attention, and the submissions that I do receive often have incomplete details.

I do hope this site assists you in some way.

With my regards,
