Some commercial mail receiving agencies may also use the 'suite' designator to indicate a company's private post-office box by listing it as a suite rather than a post-office box, though by order of the United States Postal Inspection Service, most of the major CMRA companies such as The UPS Store/Mail Boxes Etc. have drawn this down as the result of mail fraud where unscrupulous businesses who count on their targets not researching their addresses market a post-office box 'suite' or virtual office as an actual office location with personnel.
In the USA, suite can be abbreviated "STE" in postal addresses.
