I used a similar service when I lived overseas. I had no issues with using the service for credit cards. I would monitor the cards and view the statements online. I usually just had the letters from credit card companies shredded. If needed I could have a letter scanned and read it on line. If I received a new card I would have the service forward the card to my out of country address for an additional fee.

Do you remember which service you used?

I have enjoyed reading your comments on Venezuela and your travels. Best of luck in your new ventures.

Thanks! Right now I'm doing the paperwork to become a resident in Portugal. It's going quite smoothly. Today I got my Tax ID number. I got some help from a Venezuelan lady who has been here for some three years. The Portuguese bureaucracy seems well organized.

Porto is amazing, here everything seems one-of-a-kind, so much to see.

BTW, last night the lights went out in Venezuela once again

Much of Venezuela in the dark again after massive blackout
The power in the capital went out after 4 p.m. Monday and immediately backed up traffic as stop lights and the subway stopped working during rush hour.

CARACAS, Venezuela — The lights went out across much of Venezuela, reviving fears of the blackouts that plunged the country into chaos a few months ago as the government once again accused opponents of sabotaging the nation's hydroelectric power system.

I left Venezuela after the March blackouts on April 8. No light --> no water, no elevator, no refrigeration, no metro, total chaos.
