In the paper today, a way to sign up to get your name taken off credit card offers. Here is the link:

Opt out Prescreen

Well, the link doesn't work - here's the URL:

www.optoutprescreen.com


I am uncomfortable with the fact that you have to submit your SSN and your birth date. It does seem to be a secure site. Anybody know anything about it?

Is the site registered in Nigeria?

I'd avoid it unless it was a government program like Do Not Call (for those who can't think of anything nice to say about Dubya!)

I've managed to opt out of those credit card offers quite safely by using 1-888-5OPT-OUT (1-888-567-8688). Stops them cold.

That web site is linked from a few state agencies, so it might not be a scam. It's also referenced by Clark Howard's web site, which is an even better indicator that it's probably safe.

But I'll stick to the phone for a few more years.

I've heard that a reply infers that the message - sent shotgun style to thousands of e-mails addresses - has reached a target; and has now been identified! I don't respond to anything unless I know it. On the other hand, I readily use my junk-mail sorters so I don't have to see it to begin with.

They all hit the trash can unopened and the deleted messages folder unviewed with me. Easy donuts. And, yes, I can sniff right through that "open immediately", "do not forward", "important account information", "la-de-da" without skipping a beat.

The important stuff says "statement enclosed" or "hot young cheerleaders take it all".

(just kidding about the second one laugh )
