Sick of Pre-Approved Credit Card Offers???

photo of credit cardsDue to the changes in the Federal Fair Credit Reporting Act, you can now be removed from credit card mailing lists by making a toll-free call. This call can remove your name from three major credit bureaus' mailing lists for two years.

When you call, you will need to confirm your identity, a recording will ask for personal information, including your Social Security Number (which they already have).

You can also request a form that will wipe your name PERMANENTLY from their mailing lists if you want.

The National Waste Prevention Coalition states that stopping these mailings can really make a difference. If 500,000 people took advantage of the law, more than 12 million fewer pieces of mail would be sent in one year alone.
