    Default The Sender Didn't Pay the Full Postage

    I don't think I've ever had one of these until a month or two ago... now we've had 3 in that time. Has something changed in the rules that businesses are getting caught out, or has RM started clamping down more strictly on existing rules?

    Apart from the annoyance of having to sort it out and having to pay to receive something without knowing if you want it, in all 3 cases the letter was dated about 3 weeks prior. Meaning that potentially important documents (in our case from estate agents and surveyors) are getting lost.

    Has anyone else seen a similar, worrying trend?

    Always been the case. I remember many years ago working at a place where HR didn't put the correct postage on invitation to interview letters. Caused a lot of angst as a candidate had been appointed by the time some candidates go their letter.

    That's why you always put extra stamps when sending intimate photographs to members of the local judiciary.

    The only worrying trend I have seen is on pointless threads.

    Though at least it is better than Brexit ones....

    A year or two ago the Royal Mail postage charging rules were changed from the longstanding UK weight-based system to the EU size-based one.

    So if you have to post a feather light single page in an A4 envelope you now need two or three first class stamps, all thanks to the EU.

    With reductions if it conforms to the correct shape of a banana.
