So I went on Christmas vacation and this was waiting for me when I returned.
9 pieces, not bad for a short week. I am just going to do a rundown of all the junk mail that came. I will have a email sending, phone calling, form 1500 filling out, DMA complaint sending, envelope stuffing party, when the holidays settle down and everyone gets back to the office.
Random political junk mail
American Immigration Control Foundation, They also have this website. Opt out here firstname.lastname@example.org (540) 468-2023 (I found those on their Facebook page, don’t make me work that hard it only makes me madder.)
Natural Resources Defense Council, Wiki page, Charity Navigator page, opt-out here email@example.com. I also called (212) 727-2700 and they dumped me to a voice mail that is just for getting off their mailing list. Should be dropped the first week in February.
ALS Association (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease) Wiki page, Charity Navigator page. Their fundraiser is Strategic Fundraising. Opt-out here: The national email address firstname.lastname@example.org, the donation email address email@example.com. I got no response so I called the donation hot line (888) 949-2577. Should be dropped the second week in February.
Disabled Police Officers of America Inc. Charity Navigator page Zero stars, it is one of the worst charities in America Opt-out through Base Connect. I contacted Base Connect in August. The mail from them should have stopped months ago, I sent a complaint to the DMA.
As Seen on Oprah and 20/20 Chain Letter scam. The letter mentions where to buy new names Dataline 800-497-2912. They are not the scammers! When you call them to get off their mailing list, be nice to them. An example of the letter from 2009. The USPS Postal Inspector on chain letters. They want you to turn over any chain letter you receive that asks for money or other items of value to your local postmaster or nearest Postal Inspector. Write on the mailing envelope of the letter or in a separate transmittal letter, “I received this in the mail and believe it may be illegal.”
And that is where I will stop for this week.
