If you have started building your credit, then you may have already invested in a wheel barrel to haul junk mail off with. Not knowing who to turn to, you sift through your mail each day picking out the credit card offers and stacking them in a pile of junk mail. This is known as excessive junk mail syndrome.
If you or your loved one suffers from junk mail syndrome, there is help. Just call 1-888-5-OPT-OUT. Optionally, you can visit www.optoutprescreen.com. This is one of the FTC approved methods for opting out of the pre-screening that credit card companies use to pre-approve you for a credit line so they can send you offers. Opting out may not be a fast acting cure, but you should notice an effect within a few weeks which should allow the healing process to begin.
Before you know it, you’ll be doing the things you love again. You’ll be able to go play ball with the kids again, give your spouse attention again, and anything else that might suit your fancy. No more spending countless hours at the dining room table sifting through gobs and gobs of junk mail just so you can find the bills and other real mail you receive. No more taking out the trash 5 times a week. No more tree burials at your trash can.
Stop wasting your strength and energy on junk mail and start using it towards more productive means or at least, the means you choose.
