Junk Mail Prevention
How can I prevent getting more junk mail?Direct mailing companies gather information about you from various sources, but first let's cover the sources that you control.
USPS change of address formThey compile a list of new addresses that are sold to direct mailers. Instead of having your mail forwarded for you by the post office, as convenient as that may seem, inform the people and businesses you want to stay in contact with directly.
TelephoneYour telephone company may sell your phone number and address information. When you obtain a new number, ask for it to be unlisted.
Other Sources:Public records from marriage, divorce, car registration, birth, etc.
Direct mailers selling to other lists
