How Can I Stop These Official Looking Government Mailings for Debt Relief? – CB

“Dear Steve,

Hi. I am getting mailings from services offering debt relief, etc. A lot of these mailings look like official government papers.

I am working thru my debt and do not want to be on any more mailings. I recently did the opt-out with the credit bureaus

and have mailed the companies that have sent these items to me requesting that I be removed. Is there more than I can

do to stop the mailings?



Dear CB,

From what I have observed most of the mailing lists were coming from credit bureau files. The opt-out request will take some time to filter through but should get you off the lists.

The only exception would be people that received your information from another source, through an information request form you may have completed or who send to the same list again.

I would expect to see them taper off after 90 days or so.

Please update me on your progress by posting updates here in the comments section of your question. I’m very interested in how this works out for you.
