Stopping Further Privacy Intrusion
normally i don't advise any forwarding, but this one is definitely
non-transient as it involves the preservation of your own free will. i just
did it and it only took minutes, and there is no conceivable reason not
to... the minute i saw this email i called the number and got the job done.
for those of you who don't want your name, address, phone number, etc.
released to everyone under the sun starting july 1, (ed: 2001? or 2002?)
on. i just called, and stopping it was pretty easy.
end distribution of your social security number
just wanted to let everyone know who hasn't already heard, the four major
credit bureaus in the us will be allowed, starting july 1, to release your
credit info, mailing addresses, phone numbers, etc., to anyone who requests
it. if you would like to 'opt out' of this release of your info, you can
1-888-567-8688. it only takes a couple of minutes to do, and you can take
care of anyone else in the household while making only one call, you'll just
need to know their social security number.
once the message starts you'll want option #2 (# 1 sounds like the right
but it's not) and then option #3 (#1 is only for 2 years). make sure you
until they prompt for the third option which opts you out forever.
i received their paperwork in the mail confirming my 'opting out' within
less than one week of making the call.
you might consider passing this message along to your friends.
