A website called CatalogChoice.org enables you to decline catalogs you’d no longer like to receive. Simply register, select unwanted catalogs and click decline.
If you’d like to reduce the amount of unsolicited advertising mail you receive, you can write a letter to the Mail Preference Service (MPS), a free service provided by the Direct Marketing Association (DMA). In your letter, request that you be deleted from all mailing and marketing lists. Be sure to sign and date your letter. Your information will be kept in their database for 5 years and will be mailed to business subscribers four times each year.
Send your letter to:

There are four major credit bureaus: Equifax, Trans Union, Experian, and Innovis. They sell your credit information to anyone who wants to purchase their lists. If you don’t want your information sold, you can contact all four companies and stop them from selling your credit information by calling just one toll-free number: 888-5OPT OUT or 888-567-8688, and request that they take you off of their lists. You can also opt out online at OptOutPrescreen.com.
