If anything, put the address you are sending the mail to in the return spot,

Ahhhh....the old Free Franking Privileges scam. Put the recipient's address in the Return Address spot, put yours in the "to" spot, throw it in the mail with no postage and it gets "returned" to your recipient. I believe that one originated with Abby Hoffman in Steal This Book

Maybe. I didn't steal the book, and I wasn't about to buy it.

A vendor I do business with has their own address in the return spot on their envelopes for mailing payment. I just decided I liked that idea after several pieces of mail were returned to me--ones which had the newer (at the time) stick-on stamps on them when they went into the box, but came back without the stamps.
