Best way to mail the CRA's for fraud alert removal?

So, I am in the process of trying to remove a fraud alert that was placed on my reports. TU was done online, but the other 2 require a written request. Both are PO Box mailing addresses, and with the important information that they are requesting, I am a bit concerned about sending that through snail mail.


What method of shipping should I use to get this information to them, with some sort of confirmation, or express delivery? What has everyone else used?


Also, will they send me something back to notify me they have recieved and granted my request? Thanks

Re: Best way to mail the CRA's for fraud alert removal?

I dont see the issue of proof of receipt as important, as there is no date requirement, so I would not use CMRRR.

Other than that, if you dont trust USPS, then use a private carrier.
