Hello readers from The Daily Beast!

To opt-out of junk mail from Citizens United: info@citizensunited.org

If that doesn’t work contact the direct marketing firm that makes their mail HSP Direct info@hspdirect.com. If that doesn’t work, contact the CEO Jamie Hogan hogan@hspdirect.com.
Also contact NOVA List and email Sunrise Data Services removes@sunrisedataservices.com
Also Contact InfoCision, Call them at (330) 668-1400 or email them at infocis@infocision.com.


A couple of days ago Betsy Woodruff from The Daily Beast contacted me about one of my favorite group of scumbags: Citizens United. It was quite an ordeal to stop junk mail from them a couple of years ago. Email and phone calls did nothing to stop junk mail from them. I had to contact their direct marking firm HSP Direct and their telemarketer InfoCision.

Edit: Part 2: Right-Wing Group Citizens United Again May Have Tried to Trick the Elderly Into Giving It Cash

The reason that reporters are interested in Citizens United right now, is that the head of Citizens United David Bossie is working for team Trump. No wonder Mr. Trump talks like a piece of junk mail come to life.

Citizens United does not care who wins or looses in November. All they care about is making sure the money doesn’t stop flowing to them. They will say anything to get a check out of you.

Do you care about our troops?
Citizens United
Citizens United has got you covered.

You you want to fill out a survey and tell people how angry you are about illegal immigrants committing voter fraud?
Citizens United for a Secure America
Citizens United has got you covered.

Are you worried that “In God We Trust” is going to be removed from US currency?
Citizens United
Not only has Citizens United has got you on this, they will send you a one dollar bill to remind you what it looks like.

And the mailpiece that Betsy really liked:

Woops! Could you resend that $50 check you sent us a while back?
Citizens United form 1500
The only problem was that we took her checkbook away in November 2013, and this came in June of 2014.


Betsy Woodruff wants to write more about political junk mail. If you are drowning in junk mail and want to tell your story and share the junk mail you get, contact Betsy by email woodruff.betsy@gmail.com or on the twitters @woodruffbets. She is looking for junk mail from David Bossie, Citizens United or anything else that exploits the elderly. You know the stuff I’m talking about: Social Security is going to be taken away, The Death Tax. That kind of nonsense.

 

Drowning in Junk Mail – How to Opt-out of Junk Mail and Phone Calls from InfoCision

InfoCisionWiki page. Call them at (330) 668-1400 or email them at infocis@infocision.com. If they still won’t listen file a complaint with the DMA.


 

If a charity calls you chances are the person on the other end of the line works for these guys.

From their “Our Markets” page:

Serving the nation’s largest health and humanitarian organizations, professional and recreational associations, museums, and public broadcasting stations, InfoCision’s nonprofit division reaches out on behalf of the causes that touch our lives. In addition to making outgoing fundraising calls, we also take incoming calls generated by television and radio broadcasts as well as print media.

That means late at night when you see the commercials with the sad animals and the kids dying from cancer, InfoCision is ready to pick up the phone and take your money.

They also take a heathy percent (Sometimes it is over 100%) of the donation you give over the phone.  If you really want your money to go farther for the charity, give to the charity directly.

InfoCision is listed as a telemarketer but they are so much more than that. They also do mailing list management for their clients. And maybe a little data brokering on the side.

How well does being a telemarker pay? Well they have a stadium named after them.

Bloomberg article about InfoCision. Ug, so many words. Is there a cute graphic that breaks it down for me?

Drowning in Junk Mail – How much money did she give away?

I have been in contact with CNN reporter Melanie Hicken about this blog. She is on both the retirement and the Big Data beat. Junk mail is both of those smashed together in a nightmare of pleas for money for everything from saving Social Security, to saving cute fuzzy animals with big eyes. If you want to tell her about your battle with junk mail you can email her at Melanie.Hicken@turner.com.

One of the questions she asked was how much money did she give away? I didn’t know. Her family didn’t know. Didn’t want to know. But for this project, we took a peek. We only went through the last year of her account, before we wrestled the checkbook out of her hands.

  • White House Watch – $200
  • Impeach Obama – $600 When we saw this one we shut down the computer and walked away.

nope

Total: $800

Grand Total: $3,740

Those are only the big checks. Not the little $20 ones she sent off to the sweepstakes scams in the Netherlands. Or the ones for cash that were turned into money orders and sent off to who knows where.

After that glimpse it is a good guess to say that she gave away about $100,000. Or most of the value of her house.

Drowning in Junk Mail – This week in Junk Mail 31 pieces

All 32 pieces

I’m not gonna lie the mail can get boring. They send the same mailpiece over and over. They do that because once they find a mailpiece that brings in money they will send it out forever until it stops being effective. It is rare that junk mail has a topical, ripped-from-the-headlines subject.

Freedom Watch

This week Larry Klayman’s Freedom Watch sent a mailpiece that talks about ISIS. Of course it is trying to scare the money out of you, with the envelope screaming:

ISIS terror cells now on American soil… protect your family: open now!

Thanks Larry, I will just go crawl under my bed now.

This is his story of using “alternative media” to push the conservative agenda starting in the 1960’s.  When I finish, I will write a book report for it. Something I haven’t done in a few decades.

Drowning in Junk Mail – How to Opt-Out of Junk Mail from HSP Direct

This is months in the making. I have spent more time researching, sent more emails, trying to get off of this company’s mailing lists than any other. But they just redesigned their website and opened the door for me.

HSP Direct, opt-out here info@hspdirect.com. If that doesn’t work, contact the CEO Jamie Hogan hogan@hspdirect.com.
Also contact NOVA List and email Sunrise Data Services removes@sunrisedataservices.com. They manage the mailing lists for HSP Direct. You are going to have to be as annoying as possible to get these people’s attention. It took 3 months for NOVA List to get back to me. Do not be as shy as I was. Blitz them all at the same time.

This direct marketing firm is the crème de la crème of direct marketing. They have won tons of industry awards over the years.

HSP Direct
The back of one mailpieces says that HSP Direct is actually doing the fund raising for them. This was the first big clue that lead to me finding out about HSP Direct.

Huffington Post piece that mentions HSP Direct. They also gave money to one of their employees Alex Mooney to win a seat in Congress. Did he get an employee discount on mailpieces sent out during the election?

This is the main group who’s list I needed to get off of. I think she gave so much money to them, that she was on the Super Gold Elite mailing list. During my research I realized that some smaller groups only buy the Super Gold Elite mailing list that Citizens United has. My hope is that by getting off this one list it will stop about 80% of the junk mail I am still getting.
