That hack is a few years old. I doubt it would work on any of the major e-commerce sites now. I would hope that the various postal services have also wised up to that scam and will no longer automatically forward obviously scammed shipping addresses.

The comments on the article though are interesting.

I think there's some truth to that, unfortunately. But then again, it can be applied to other societies too.
