What's your favourite Spoof Home Postal Mail Address ?

For example, where you have to fill in a form to receive some software / email updates, and you are supposed to give an address, but you don't want to give your real Home Address...
Mine is..

999, Letsby Avenue
And a (mobile) phone number ?
I find 0799 123 45678 works every time, even with the extra digit.
(Yes I have tried to ring it to check it is not in use !!)

I don't give spoof addresses for software, it invalidates the licence, having said that I will often give spoof phone numbers for stuff and normally I use something like 0800 358 9760 because I get hundreds of spam calls from that number (a 3rd party company that keeps trying to flog me phone upgrades I don't want)
just because your paranoid doesn't mean they aren't out to get you

You could always use the local nick as the phone number, I think they will be happy to deal with people telling them their pc is having issues, or do they want to claim ppi back.
As to postal address, they can post me stuff, it goes in the recycling anyway.

As kids we used to go train spotting which often meant going places we shouldn't like engine sheds.
We each had a made up name and address to give if we were caught, mine was..
