In the meantime, we continue to mail statements and hold the returns.
That is a complete waste of time and money. You can reproduce anything at anytime, why hold on to the paper.
Most banks, if they get returned mail make an effort to locate the customer immediately. If they can't, they put an alert on their systems, shred the mail in question and immediately shut-off future statements, etc., until a new address is located.
