Hello, It would depend on why the letter is being sent. Many legal issues can publish notice in the local paper and it will in serve the same effect as sending you a certified letter. If is a civil matter than most business organization would hire a process server and serve the papers at your place of work or your home. In the long run it is better to accept service and that will usually give you more time to defend yourself. Thank You Tom
