Get Rid of Junk Mail
- Write "Please do not rent or sell my name" next to your name whenever you enter a contest, make a purchase or donation, join a buyer's club, order a product by mail, subscribe to a magazine, or return a warranty card.
- Call the customer service number of the company or organization that is sending you unwanted mail and ask to be removed from its list.
- Remove your name from several national mailing lists through the Direct Marketing Association's Mail Preference Service. You can register online or by mail. This service is available only to residential addresses, and your request is honored for five years.
- Contact major consumer credit bureaus to have your name removed from mailing lists used for credit offers.
