How To Remove Your Name From Mailing Lists
STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- Some consumers want to be on marketers' mailing and telephone lists for new offers, and some don’t.
If you fall into the latter category, Victory State Bank suggests you follow these tips from the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp.:
• You can reduce the number of offers for credit cards, insurance and other financial products that you receive by calling toll-free 888-5-OPTOUT (888-567-8688) to remove your name from marketing lists that the nation's major credit bureaus provide to creditors and insurers.
• You can cut back on mailings and phone calls from national advertisers by taking advantage of services offered by the Direct Marketing Association.
For more information, write to DMA Consumer Affairs, 1111 19th Street, NW, Washington, DC 20036, or go to www.dmaconsumers.org on the Internet. To be removed from marketing lists at local businesses, contact them directly.
• Don't give out personal details (such as your income or buying habits) to people or businesses who ask for it unless you know and approve of how that information will be used.
Example: The information you provide when you enter drawings at stores, fill out warranty cards for new products or respond to surveys on the Internet often gets sold or rented to other marketers.
