    The Mail Preference Service division of the Direct Marketing Association (known as DMA) compiles a list of people who do not want junk mail. This list is provided to any company who requests it, usually magazines.

    Write Mail Preference Service and request your name, address, and phone number be deleted from all mailing and marketing lists. Provide them with three spellings or variations of your name, as well as with any other names at your address (including previous occupants). They will retain your information for five years. At that time you should write again. Be sure to write when you move. Send your name and address. Be sure to sign and date your letter.

    The Farmingdale office processes your request. They will attempt to enter your correct full name at your specified address, but not all permutations, and they have been known to arbitrarily leave off an important variation of your name. On a quarterly basis, they send an updated database to their DC office and make the database available for general distribution. To see if your name was correctly entered into their database, contact: Mail Preference Service, Washington, DC, and ask for Ms. Tyree, Consumer Affairs Dept. 202.955.5030 x2413.

    DMA also offers a telephone opt-out service. Write them with a list of all telephone numbers you want placed on "do not call" lists. Send your name, address, phone number with area code, and signature. They will retain your information for five years.

    I undergo in recommendations two times an afternoon mail, top quality replaced into probable 2 cents and a postcard a penny. in case you have been waiting for something and did no longer arrive interior the morning, you in many cases was hoping it could come interior the afternoon mail. late 40's early 50's.

    If the junk mail you received is "postage paid," stick a note in it and return to them telling them to take you off their mailing list.

    you must call each company and tell them to stop junk mail or put a first class stamp on each piece and return to sender,
