This was a bad week, in terms of junk mail. I haven’t gotten this much mail in a week, since before the new year.
The lady who’s mail this is died last week. This completely changes the way I will handle mail from now on. No more form 1500’s (Unless they are going to step 2, because F those guys) No more complaints to the DMA. My mantra has changed from “Take me off your mailing list” to “Deceased she is dead”. I have already filled out the DMA’s Deceased Do Not Contact Registration form, acxiom’s opt-out page has a box you can check if you are opting-out a deceased person opt-out here, and I called Epsilon.com AKA Abacus (888) 780-3869 to tell them she has passed. All that will take 3 months to take effect. I went down to my local post office to find out how to permanently stop her mail. I will do that when her estate is settled. Don’t worry all of that will get it’s own blog post when I do the last step.
2 from Freedom Watch run by Larry Klayman. Wiki page. To opt-out call (310) 595-0800 and email firstname.lastname@example.org If they blow you off, do what I had to do and send a complaint to the DMA. Junk mail from them should stop in April.
Project Veritas run by James O’Keefe Charity Navigator page (unrated) opt-out here email@example.com and call (914) 908-2300 it was like calling a frat house. I received no response from an email I sent months ago so I sent a complaint to the DMA. I am starting to think that they may not know how to take someone off their mailing list. Base Connect is mentioned in their 2011 IRS filing.
Eagle Forum, Wiki page, run by Phyllis Schlafly. Ballotpedia page, Open Secrets page, Opt-out here firstname.lastname@example.org and call ( . Also out-out from American Target Advertising. Compare to Project Veritas: O yes I got your email this morning, it has been taken care of.
Abraham Lincoln Foundation for Public Policy Research no website, Washington State page. Opt-out here email@example.com or call (703) 759-4599. I got no response from either. I sent a complaint to the DMA.
St. Joseph’s Indian School opt-out here firstname.lastname@example.org. Apparently it takes 9000 days to get off their mailing list.
Balboa Mailing Company George Taylor 510 W, Broadway STE 800 San Diego CA 92101. Opt-out email@example.com no reply, or call (619) 760-0570 it is just a pre-recorded message about how great their program is. Send in a form 1500 to make them stop.
4 mailpieces that are ready to go.
