If I was to fake my own death...would that be not WJWD?

I'm signed up with, one of those online DVD rental things, recently I ordered another debit card and because of this, they haven't been able to process my payment. After two emails I have now got a letter in the post, now here is my question: Would it be wrong to phone up and say "Hi, this is Dave's brother, he died three weeks ago, I'll return his DVD's, just please don't writing to us(him) its upsetting."
I don't want to be subscribed to lovefilm any more anyway, and am looking for a way to get out of it.
The only problem I can see with this idea (and it may not even happen) is with their data sharing things that companies do for credit ratings, is there a possibility that I would start receiving letters to "Mr D Garcia (Deceased)"? I think that would make my day.

Dave Garcia Deceased - interesting.

Ring and explain the problem, send back the DVDs and then tell them where to go if they continue to bug you.

Dying is far too complicated.

that happens at work, you're entitled to act as someone else and demand no further junk mail under the guise that the addree is deceesed, and lovefilm would have to contact everyone else they gave your info to and get them to tak eyou off their mailing lists.

it'd work though unless they contacted the bank
