Re: What to do when receiving a letter for the wrong person (from the canton no less)

What's the correct thing to do? I can't even remember in the US... put it back in the mailbox with a sticky note or something?

I suppose I could ask at the post office. It's from the Department Gesundheit und Soziales, Abteilung Gesundheit, for my canton. And it's a 1 unit rental property (house) and I've been here almost a year. Right adress, wrong name.
Well the first thing you do is check it is for one of the neighbors in your apartment block or in the next door building. In 30 years I canít recall a single case where I was not able to solve the problem that way.

Otherwise do as others have suggested.
