"Just Say No" To... Unsolicited Credit Card Offers

If you want to stop the flow of unsolicited credit-card offers, there is a way. Under the federal Fair Credit Reporting Act, consumers have the right to stop credit bureaus from providing their names and addresses for marketing lists.

As required in the federal legislation, the major credit bureaus have set up a toll-free number (888-5-OPT-OUT--888-567-8688) that is required to be provided with the offer of credit. When you call, you can either opt out by telephone for two years or request a form you can use to opt out permanently. By calling the same number, you can also be put back on marketing lists after having been removed from them. In cases of joint credit, both parties may be required to opt out before the solicitations will stop.
