Hi UMers!

I want to share something with you. Its one urban legend which happens to be true. And its quite usefull. Lets say you want to sent postcard to someone and you dont have a money for stamp or you dont have a time to buy a stamp. Or perhaps you want to save any penny you have. How can you do it? Simply. Instead of stamp wrote down on postcard on the place where usualy stamp goes this code: „ 2FA-BE„ or like this „2FA  BE“. I dont know what does it means but it works.  One of my friend went in Belgium and he sent me postcard with this code to test this urban legend and I got postcard. We then tried from several destinations and almost everytime worked. So if anyone knows whats the origin of this secret international code please share your knowledge.

it's a code recognized by the CIA.

Anyone willing to test this "CIA" or other supposed secret international codes?

I'm willing to give my postal address via private message to someone who can send me a letter without a stamp from the far corners of the Earth here to me in Ireland via the above or other supposed secret CIA (or other) codes.

I'm fascinated by the idea of stampless international postal codes that government agnencies use to talk to each other.

That is ineteresting, but you would think that the CIA would find out and try and contact the person using these codes to tell them to knock it off

For an urban legend to be true, it, in my eyes, has to work or happen 100% of the time

You got lucky?

Postman didnt care?

If what I type offends you, don't see it as an attack, but as my opinion.
