Whoever knowingly and willfully deposits any mailable matter such as statements of accounts, circulars, sale bills, or other like matter, on which no postage has been paid, in any letter box established, approved, or accepted by the Postal Service for the receipt or delivery of mail matter on any mail route with intent to avoid payment of lawful postage thereon, shall for each such offense be fined under this title.
This code regulates how an individual accepts a bill for payment. For instance, if a person puts a bill for payment into the mail with the goal to send it back or to any other address, that means the person intentionally refuses to pay for it. The code in title 18, section 1725 regulates that this person will receive a fine for that action.
