Opting Out of Marketing Lists

Another important step in protecting yourself and family from idenity theft is to opt-out of pre approved credit offers and insurance offers. These offers can be stolen from the mail system, your mailbox, or if you do not shred them. Then thieves can simply open the pre-approved account in your name and start spending. The best thing to do is simply stop these offers before they are even sent by signing up at the Opt-Out website.

Not only will you be protecting yourself from fraud, you will reduce your level of junk mail and who doesn't want less junk mail! We have also provided the link to the Federal do not call list, so you can reduce your telemarketing calls as well.
