Credit Opt Out
I received a piece of mail from one of my lenders today.....and I actually read it. What I learned was that there is a National Opt-Out Center where you can have your name removed from the pre-approved credit lists maintained by the three major credit card companies which will effectively limit and reduce the number of credit and insurance solicitations that you receive in the post!
Contact them at the National Opt-Out center at 1-888-567-8688
