Under Fed. R. Civ. P. One can be served according to the state law or:
(2) doing any of the following: (A) delivering a copy of the summons
and of the complaint to the individual personally; (B) leaving a copy
of each at the individual’s dwelling or usual place of abode with
someone of suitable age and discretion who resides there; or (C)
delivering a copy of each to an agent authorized
None of those would apply to your facts. Thus you would have to find some jurisdiction that would allow service of process under your fact. I dare say that none will and that due process would come into play.
In NJ, due process applies and service may be made
(1) Upon a competent individual of the age of 14 or over, by
delivering a copy of the summons and complaint to the individual
personally, or by leaving a copy thereof at the individual's dwelling
place or usual place of abode with a competent member of the household
of the age of 14 or over then residing therein, or by delivering a
copy thereof to a person authorized by appointment or by law to
receive service of process on the individual's behalf;
It has to be the current place of abode.
