'm sure he had a separate acct, but still, banks send out statements, where are they going? If they're going to the penthouse, surely Chelsea would open them and notice the withdrawals. If they're going to a PO box, when your box gets full, they send you a notice to your home, to come empty your box.

RE: the statement "If they're going to a PO box, when your box gets full, they send you a notice to your home, to come empty your box."
Over the past 35 years, I've always had my mail delivered to a PO Box. I've moved a few times and lived in four states, so I've had about 6 different PO Box addresses through the course of the past 35 years.
In all that time, I've *never* received a notice at my home street address regarding the status of my PO Box. When it gets too full, they take all the mail out of it, and put it in a bag in the back room of the Post Office building, with a tag with your box number on it. Then they put a single piece of paper in your box that says "Box too full, come and claim your mail at the counter".
Perhaps Adam has a PO Box in another town, where nobody would recognize him going there to check his mail?

My post office (small town) will call you up and tell you to come empty it. Only mail they store is when you fill out the hold my mail card.
Thanks for sharing how it works in your town.
Yeah. I see now ... that what I wrote means ... that I know what *six* post offices do -- six -- out of millions of post offices in the USA. LOL ! Why did I *assume* that my experience was true for everyone? Sorry about that.
There are probably several different policies, and it's handled differently in different towns.
