Take steps to stop unsolicited mail

QUESTION: Can unsolicited mail be removed? Also what about initially solicited mail that s no longer wanted?
- Walt

ANSWER: Direct Marketing Association can alert all DMA members to remove individuals from mailings. Marketers that are not association members may participate as well.
DMA can’t eliminate mailings from companies with whom you do business.
To register to reduce unsolicited mailings, send your name, home address and signature to: Mail Preference Service, Direct Marketing Association, P.O. Box 643, Carmel, NY 10512. There is no charge.
You can also register for free online at nglist.html. The fastest, longest-lasting way to register is the complete online option that has a $5 charge and remains in effect for five years. Use the URL above.
For initially solicited mail, send a request to the company. If you shop by mail, request that the company not sell your information elsewhere.
