OPT OUT SERVICES

I decided to look up other ways we can opt out of direct mail, pre approved credit offers, telemarketers, etc.

Click here for all the info. from the Federal Trade Commission.

The big things for me are:

The credit bureaus offer a toll-free number that enables you to “opt-out” of having pre-approved credit offers sent to you for two years. Call 1-888-5-OPTOUT (567-8688)

The Federal Government has created the National Do Not Call Registry—the free, easy way to reduce the telemarketing calls you get at home. To register, or to get information, visit www.donotcall.gov, or call 1-888-382-1222 from the phone you want to register.
