Unsolicited Credit Card Offers Informative - How to Stop Unsolicited Credit Card Offers

Review by chemman on 2006-10-03
If you are tired of constantly getting unsolicited credit card offers that you need to shred before throwing away, you should register at this site:

www.optoutprescreen.com

You can find more info about this program on the ftc’s website

http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/conline/pubs/credit/prescreen.htm

I did this about a year ago and now I hardly every receive credit applications, my wife on the other hand never registered and still receives an average of 2 applications a day! It takes a few months (2 to 4 I’d estimate) to really see an impact since many of the companies may have you on file already as having good credit so may still send them out until their next prescreen cycle.

Thank you for the link. I signed up for my husband and myself. I did not put in our SS number - I don't give that to anyone - especially on the computer!
