Junk the Junk Mail

Check out this website to help stop receiving junk mail. Also you can fill out an online form here and it will generate personalize letters for you and you can mail those in if you would rather not make calls.

Sick of Credit Card Offers?
The main consumer credit reporting agencies, TransUnion, Experian and Equifax, maintain mailing lists that are often used by credit card and insurance companies to send out Junk mail. The good news is that you can call a single number to get your name and address removed from the mailing lists circulated by all three agencies (as well as that of a fourth company, Innovis).

Just call: 1-888-5-OPTOUT (1-888-567-8688) Or Check this Site: https://www.optoutprescreen.com/

The number - which connects you to a recorded message - works 24 hours a day. You will be prompted to give your full name, address, telephone number and social security number. (People often ask about the necessity of giving their social security number. The credit bureaus already have access to people's social security numbers, and claim that they ask for the numbers here to confirm the requests). When given options, press 3 to have your name removed permanently, or press 1 to have your name removed for just two years.
