Looking for a quick and easy way to put an end to junk mail? Tired of “You’re Approved!” prescreened offers cluttering your mail box?
Here is a way to save time and space — not to mention our planet’s resources. These steps can also help safeguard your privacy. Did you know the method that creditors and insurers use to prescreen your credit standing could compromise your identity by allowing access to your consumer credit file?
Unless you enjoy receiving these offers, here’s how you can temporarily or permanently stop them. (And fear not, if you start to miss the pile-up, you can opt back in anytime). To opt out for five years: Call toll-free 1-888-5-OPT-OUT (1-888-567-8688) or visit www.optoutprescreen.com.
To opt out permanently: You may begin the permanent Opt-Out process online at www.optoutprescreen.com. To complete your request, you must return the signed Permanent Opt-Out Election form, which will be provided to you after you initiate your online request. As an added bonus, this FTC link will also provide you with other easy steps to stop other unwanted marketing communications.
