Please hold my mail, i owe on my PO Box 355, but I can't afford to lose it because I've been waiting on very important mail from identity thefts issues I've had fraud and I'm waiting on my taxes and stimulus checks I've been in the hospital in VCMC and have no access to credit cards due to the identity thefts and address changes my soon to be ex husband was doing him and his girlfriend. So I'm correcting my names and social security numbers.But i get discharged in the morning and will make my way to Santa Barbara Post office right after leaving the hospital. 323-219-0323


I forwarded my mail from 179 El Sueno Rd, Santa Barbara, Ca 93110 starting 2/1/22 to 310 Moreton Bay Lane #2, Goleta, CA 93117. To date I have only received one piece of mail yesterday. So where is my mail from 2/1/22 to 3/15/22! I have been down to the Patterson location three times and they tell me it is forwarded to Santa Clarita. Where is my mail????

Packages in Santa Barbara are getting hung up and lost. Packages going everywhere but where they belong. The Post office is ruining peoples businesses like they are doing with covid. This really sucks multiple packages dead after Santa Barbara stop. Im pissed.


I was driving past the post office today October 10th at 1:30pm and there was a fake mail in ballot collector with signs and cardboard boxes to steal ballots. Please be careful and keep someone out on the street to ensure voter integrity!! ♥️🤞🏼💙
