Over 270,000 letters that were posted last year, never reached its final destination, the news agency TT reports. This was either because the address was incorrect, or because not enough postage was put on. Over the last couple of years the number of letters that have gone astray has increased by 48000.
The letters that cannot be delivered eventually end up at the Swedish Post and Telecom Agency, where they are opened, to see if a sender can be traced. But since the name and adress of most senders are missing, most of these letters end their days at the hands of the Agency.
