Resources for Reducing Unwanted Solicitations
The Direct Marketing Association (DMA) provides a way to curb those pesky mail solicitations. Go online to www.dmachoice.org. It will take approximately 90 days for you to see a difference. Don't let that dissuade you though; it is well worth the time!
To remove your name from solicitors who utilize major credit reporting bureaus (credit card companies in particular), call 1-888-5OPTOUT (1-888-567-8688) or visit www.optoutprescreen.com.
When you receive a solicitation over the telephone, request that you be placed on the company's “Do Not Call” list. Companies are required by law to comply with your request.
