just send it back & don't worry. They probably don't purge their records often or at all.

I recently had a huge spate of wrong mail - important stuff like tax docs, social security and welfare docs, etc. I got so freaked out I finally went to the police. I just kept "returning to sender" and eventually it stopped. I think the thing that finally cut it off - aside from rejecting the USPS change of address forms - was that for one particular piece of mail, I hand-returned it to a county agency with a note explaining there was no one here by that name and never had been, and if they had ANY way of contacting this woman they should tell her all her mail was getting mis-directed.

But mass-marketing junk mail...don't bother. It's just outdated info. I get stuff still once in a great while for the person two owners ago (20 years).
