This link was on the back of an offer I got today in the mail!

It is through Experian and allows you to opt out of getting junk credit card and other offers for up to 5 years!
Keeps less people from viewing your credit report which is helpful as well!

Wait, an offer to opt out of junk mail that you got in some junk mail?

That sounds like the time my Dad installed an antivirus program that he found from a pop up ad and nearly destroyed his computer.


A quick google search says this one might be legit, though. I don't think I get enough junk mail for it to be worth the gamble, though.

There was a tiny little note at the bottom of the back of the credit card offer stating that I could opt out. It also indicated that this was to opt out of basically any unsolicited views of your credit report by any agency. Sounded like something that the feds initiated in the fine print. Good thing I read it all!
