How do I get my name off marketing lists?

  1. Stop pre-approved credit card offers. Have your name removed from credit bureau marketing lists. Call toll-free 888-5OPTOUT (888-567-8688).

    Have your name, address, and phone number removed from many other marketing lists. Contact the Direct Marketing Association. This will not stop all marketing mailings and telephone calls, but it will cut out many.

    DMA Mail Preference Service
    P. O. Box 643
    Carmel, NY 10512
    Or online (for a $5 charge) at

    DMA Telephone Preference Service
    P. O. Box 1559
    Carmel, NY 10512
    Or online (for a $5 charge) at

    Tell telemarketers who call you to put you on their "do not call" list. Federal law requires them to do this.

  2. The National Do Not Call Registry is open for business, putting consumers in charge of the telemarketing calls they get at home. The Federal government created the national registry to make it easier and more efficient for you to stop getting telemarketing calls you don’t want. You can register online at WWW.DONOTCALL.GOV or call toll-free, 1-888-382-1222 (TTY 1-866-290-4236), from the number you wish to register. Registration is free.
