An Post, Camile Thai takeaway and the TV Licence inspector.
A Troika of tasty evil?
Today a letter was delivered to my house from the TV Licence inspector addressed to my housemate’s girlfriend. She does not live with us but occasionally gets takeaway from Camile and JustEat.ie delivered here. In the last few months she received two letters from Camile with her name and our address handwritten on the envelope.
My question is; is it legal for An Post to use the names and addresses from letters that pass through the sorting offices for the purpose of TV licence registration? Myself and my housemates receive post regularly so why didn’t they address the letter to any of us?
Our theory is that An Post/TV licence guys picked my housemate’s girlfriend’s name as the name/address on the letters from Camile are handwritten, suggesting that the letter is sent from someone who knows the recipient lives at that address. Seems pretty underhanded from An Post!
