Places To Contact To Protect Your Privacy Online And Off

To Stop Junk Mail:

Direct Mailing Remove List
You must register in order to remove your name.

Town Directories:
R. L. Polk & Co.

Haines & Co., Criss-Cross Directory
Attn: Director of Data Processing
8050 Freedom Ave., NW
North Canton, OH 44720
Phone number: (800) 697-4550
You can call or send a letter requesting that your name be removed.

Credit Reporting Agencies:
Go to or call 1-888-5OPTOUT, or 1-888-567-8688 so that your name will no longer be sold to other companies. This will stop unsolicited credit card offers and more. This number services Trans Union, Equifax, Novus, and Experian. You will have the option of having your name not sold for two years or permanently. If it any time, you would like to start receiving offers again, you may do so, by calling this number again, and selecting the option.

Be sure to call or write to your individual credit card companies to let them know that you do not want your name sold.

To Stop Telemarketers:

Direct Marketing Association's (DMA) Telephone Preference Service
PO BOX 9014
Farmingdale, NY 11735-9014

When a telemarketer calls, tell them to put you on their do not contact list. By law, they are required to have one and not contact those people on the list.

National And State Do Not Call Registries

Laws have been passed on the national and state levels. You can now add yourself to do not call registries. Beware though! Some states only stop people calling you to sell you something. Calls for donations and political calls can increase because they can use the list to call you.
National Do Not Call Registry
State Do Not Call Registries

Fight back! There are laws to protect you from telemarketers. If you are placed on a "do not call" list and they contact you again, you can sue them in small claims court for $500. Interested in learning more about the law? Consumer Action has the information you need.
