Subject: Re: HELP, Landlord Is Withholding Mail!!!

: Okay, this is the situation...

: ...I'm sub-leasing an apartment in NYC from a friend of mine who is

: currently studying abroad. Somehow, the landlord found out that I'm

: living in the apartment and wants me out by the end of the month,

: because I'm not the person on the lease. Fine.

: ....However, all of a sudden, he installed new mailboxes, and has

: refused to give me the key, because I'm not the legal tenant.

: Isn't withholding someone's mail a Federal offense?

: Even though I'm not the legal tenant, isn't there anything I can do??? Call the police and tell them. It is a federal offense to have someone elses mail.

: Any insight or information on this would be so gratefully appreciated!!
