Remove Yourself from Paper/Email/Calling Spam!

Get Removed from Junk Mail Lists to Go Green, De-Clutter and Protect Your Family from ID Theft!

How much junk mail do you receive each month? Artist Annette Lawrence decided to find out--and make a statement with hers. Lawrence saved every scrap of unsolicited mail she received at her home for 13 months and used it to create an exhibit called Free Paper, which showed at the Flatbed Gallery. The grand total? 265 lbs over 395 days. Source: Associated Press
10 Ways to Opt Out of Junk Mailing Lists

Direct mailers don't believe in the concept of opting in, so if you want to cut down on the amount of straight-to-the-trash mail you receive, you'll need to contact them directly and request that your name is removed. ForestEthics, the group behind the Do Not Mail Registry, has gathered several ways to contact the junk mailers.
1. Use ForestEthics' form to generate 17 ready-to-mail requests to different direct mail companies. DoNotMail will take the data you enter and create a PDF document with all 17 letters ready to print and send. If you don't want to enter your personal info into a random site, you can use fake data and then download the PDF document for a reference to create your own letters.
2. Call 1-888-567-8688 (888-5-OPT-OUT) to opt out of receiving credit card and insurance offers through your credit report information provided by the three credit bureaus--Equifax, TransUnion and Experian. To opt-out online, click here:https://www.optoutprescreen.com/?rf=t

3. Email your removal request to Abacus Direct at optout@abacus-us.com--email them your name, address, email, and phone number and write "Opt Out" in the header and in the email.
4. Be removed from the RedPlum Mailing List by calling 800-437-0479, and select option 3 (8:30 am-5:00pm EST) or by clicking this link and filling out the short form: http://www.redplum.com/mailing-list.aspx. You can opt to get emails instead of paper mailers for coupons. Note that it may take up to 5-6 weeks for this request to take effect.
5. Fill out the form on the Direct Marketing Association's website:
•Register online
Visit: https://www.dmachoice.org/dma/member/regist.action 

•Register names of deceased: The DMA also provides the opportunity to register the names of deceased loved ones with the DMA's Deceased Do Not Contact list (DDNC) at:https://preference.the-dma.org/cgi/ddnc.php. Click on the Continue button at the bottom of the page to get to the form.

6. Email your removal request to Publishers Clearinghouse at privacychoices@pchmail.com--email them your name, address, email, and phone number and write "Opt Out" in the header of the email.

7. Get off Val-Pak's list by filling out the form athttp://www.coxtarget.com/mailsuppression/s/DisplayMailSuppressionForm

8. To remove yourself from Acxiom's list, you must click here:http://www.acxiom.com/us-optout.

9. DoNotMail.com notes, "Catalogs may stop coming when your other removal requests are processed, but you can always call the catalog company directly and ask to be removed from their list and any sister mailing lists."
10. Visit the Federal Trade Commission's website for more opt-out options, such as through the DMV: http://www.ftc.gov/privacy/protect.shtm

Take the time to Unsubscribe from Junk Email Lists! Scroll to the bottom of each email marketing you no longer wish to receive and you should see an "unsubscribe" highlighted option. If not, email them directly with the subject heading reading, "Remove from Mailing List."

Remove yourself from Telemarketing Lists by pressing #9 on your phone if it's a recording, and by asking to be removed from their calling list if it's a live person. If number 9 doesn't work, try number 7, and then 0 to try to get to a live operator.
