JUNK MAIL Free Yourself From Junk Mail!
If you don't want it and won't read it, junk mail really is wasteful.  Below are three simple strategies for keeping your mailbox junk-free.  Many direct marketing services share or sell their customer lists to different companies.

To Reduce Junk Mail

  1. The Direct Marketing Association (DMA) is one of the main United States organizations involved in compiling direct mailing lists, and will remove your name from its members' mailing lists if requested.  Mail a written request including your name, complete home address and signature to:

Mail Preference Service
The Direct Marketing Association
P. O. Box 9008
Farmingdale, NY  11735-9008

Tel:  (212) 768-7277
Online: www.the-dma.org

It is important to check the labels on your mail to include all variations of your name when requesting that it be removed from marketing lists.  Lists are updated quarterly so it may take a while to notice a reduction in your volume of mail.

  1. Credit reporting agencies' file information are frequently used as a basis for developing mail lists.  Consumers can follow a simple procedure to "opt out" of inclusion in mail lists.  By calling a toll-free number you may request to have your name removed from a list.  The special "opt out" numbers are:
Experian, Trans Union, and Equifax:
1-800-353-0809 or 1-888-567-8688
Your request is good for two years.  Additionally, you may request a form that will allow creditors and insurers to take your name off these credit bureau lists permanently.
  1. Enclose a statement in return postage paid envelopes to get off lists you are already on.  If possible, put the exact address label from this particular company on the back of the note or write your name and address on the back.
Cut and send a note such as the sample note the next time you:

Order merchandize through the mail
Fill out a warranty card
Complete a consumer survey
Join an organization
Subscribe to a magazine
Renew your credit card

Direct Marketing Association,

Do not sell or rent my name and address.
Please remove my name from your mailing list.

In an effort to reduce the unnecessary generation of waste paper, I am requesting that you not give my name and address to mailing list companies.   I do not wish to receive unsolicited direct mail.  Thank you for your cooperation.

Opt Out from America Online* CD Advertisement Mailing

If you would rather not receive those packaged CD promotions, a free phone call to AOL Customer Service will remove you from future mailing.  AOL subscribers can call 1-800-827-6364 and non-subscribers can call 1-888-265-8002.  Just tell the friendly AOL Customer Service representative you want to be removed from their mail list and they will assist you.  This only removes you from the advertisement mail list.  You can still take advantage of their promotions and services by logging on to www.aol.com.

*America Online, AOL and the Triangle Logo are registered service marks of America Online, Inc.
