()*&%#$ solicitations

March 8, 2007

How many of you are getting solicitations in the mail from credit card companies on nearly a daily basis? (Raising my hand too – wow, most of you, huh?) OptOutPrescreen is a website where you can opt out of credit card solicitations through the mail. Give this a bit of time to become effective.

You can also opt-out of many telephone tele-marketing solictations via the Federal government’s National Do Not Call Registry. Be sure to include your pager / cellphone numbers as well as your home and fax numbers.

Nice to get some &$*(#@&^% satisfaction, and save the world at the same time.
