Opt Out of Junk Mail

Christina Huh Nov 25, 2010

Visit sites such as OptOutPrescreen to remove yourself from the hit lists of insurance and credit-card services, two of the largest sources of junk mail. If a particular corporate culprit is harassing you with unprovoked offers, call the company directly and politely request that they knock it off. But the biggest step you can take is to add your name to “Do Not Mail” lists via the Mail Preference Service.
