Opt out of receiving offers of credit in the mail
from the three nationwide consumer reporting
companies - and avoid ID theft from dumpster diving, mailbox theft and mail diversion. Pre-approved credit offers carry a lot of sensitive financial information which an identity thief can use to create a profile on you and then steal your credit.
Call 1-888-5-OPTOUT (1-888-567-8688) or opt out on.line at http://www.optoutprescreen.com. We've found the online opt out more quick and reliable. You will be asked to provide your SSN which the consumer reporting companies need to match you with your file.
