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 – This Week in Junk Mail 6 pieces

All 6 pieces

I feel silly blogging about 6 pieces of junk mail. But the dramatic tension is growing. Can I make the junk mail stop for a month? I am on the edge of my mailbox with anticipation.

The good thing about only 6 pieces, is that I have more time to really talk about these last few junk mailers. This week doesn’t disappoint.


Citizens to Protect Senior's Security a project of Christian Seniors Association a project of Traditional Values Coalition

Citizens to Protect Senior’s Security a project of Christian Seniors Association a project of Traditional Values Coalition. That is a mouth full let’s break down the many layers of this group.
All of these groups are controled by one family: the Sheldons. The dad Rev. Louis P. Sheldon  and the daughter Andrea Lafferty run Traditional Values Coalition, Wiki page, Washington State page  Open Secrets page, Charity Navigator page (no rating) opt-out here (714)520-0300 (no pick up) tvcca@traditionalvalues.org. They want to be “the religious conservative alternative to the ultraliberal AARP.”

They also have the Christian Seniors Association  it is the lobbying arm of TVC. It is run by Andrea Lafferty and her husband Jim Lafferty (202)547-4400 (no pick up) Memberservices@christianseniorsassociation.org.

Citizens to Protect Senior’s Security is a division of Christian Seniors Association that focuses on Obama care, and anything else that scares seniors into giving money.

TVC is listed as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center for it’s anti-gay views. Andrea Lafferty is proud of this and wears it like a badge of honor.

American Target Advertising is their fundraiser.


Faith & Freedom Coalition
Faith and Freedom Coalition, Wiki page, Open Secrets page, Charity Navigator page, opt-out here  info@ffcoalition.com I have already emailed them with no answer. They did pick the phone (770) 622-1501.

This one is her membership dues renewal notice for 2015. They are very proud of the different ways they harassed people last year:

  • 17.5 million voter education letters. That were tossed in the trash.
  • Made 10 million get-out-the-vote, harassing phone calls.
  • Distributed 20 million voter guides to 117,000 churches. That were put in that free flyers spot that every church has, then tossed out after the election.
  • Emailed and texted 4.6 voters. That went strait to their junk mail boxes.
  • Ran 16 million online video ads. That were blocked by Ad Blocker.
  • Deployed hundreds of volunteers who visited 500,00 homes, and had the door slammed in their faces.

American Target Advertising is their fundraiser.

Platinum Acquisitions scam
Rob Leonard’s The Green Sheet scam
Platinum Acquisitions INC. 228 W Lincoln HWY #133 Schereville, IN 46375
They have bought and tested all the MLM and Pyramid scams for you. Just send them $20, and they will tell you how to make letters like this one to take peoples money. One of the phrases caught my eye: “Massive Profits In Sports & Concerts” that is the same pitch used by this little post card:

Mysterious “Backwoods Millionaire” Finally reveals his $5,000,000,00 Secret go to this website: Something4Nothing.com  Massive Profits in Sports and Concerts they want $59 a month. This is a scam run by Jim “Jimbo” Walters of Platinum Acquisitions INC. 228 W US HWY 30 #133, Schererville, IN 46375. Opt-out here He must be the king of the “Get rick quick” scam these are other scams he runs:

Did Jim “Jimbo” Walters change his name to Rob Leonard? Inquiring minds want to know.

I found no other mention of Rob Leonard or The Green Sheet on the internet. I feel kinda special. I am the fist one to talk about this scam. If you get this scam in the mail, fill out a form 1500 and send it to New York. That is the only way to stop junk mail like this. It is a scam you will not make any money.

Drowning in Junk Mail – This Week in Junk Mail 25 pieces

There has been a casualty in the war on junk mail. I dropped my precious camera while taking photos of junk mail. It was an Olympus E-PM1 in purple. It will cost more to fix it that I can get one used. 😦

The same camera that did this:
Inyo National Forest, Papoose Flat, Arch
also took 99% of the photos on this blog.

Don’t worry about the blog, I have a back-up camera that will pick up the slack.


St. Joseph's Indian School 2014 Christmas Appeal
David Fitzpatrick and Drew Griffin of CNN did a story about our good friends at St. Joseph’s Indian School. A different CNN reporter Melanie Hicken Melanie.Hicken@turner.com, is looking for junk mail stories. She has fallen down the junk mail rabbit hole with me. Her focus is on senior issues, retirement, and big data.

Drowning in Junk Mail – How to Opt-out of Junk Mail from American Target Advertising

Today’s direct marketing firm is American Target Advertising, they also have the website Non-Profit Prosperity.com.

Contact them here. If that doesn’t work call (703) 392-7676

The company was founded in 1965 by Richard Viguerie using a mailing list made up of 12,500 of Barry Goldwater`s $50-plus donors. He went down to the clerk of the House of Representatives with a gaggle of secretaries to write down Barry Goldwater’s donors who gave $50 or more. Out of 15,000 names they only got 12,500, before someone kicked them out. That list of names became the backbone of his direct mail firm, The Viguerie Company that became American Target Advertising. Mr. Viguerie has spun off his marketing techniques in to a class, so you can do them yourself Viguerie Marketing Institute. He has also written a book about direct mail marketing America’s Right Turn.

Direct marketing firms all share/sell their mailing lists with each other. Groups who I opted-out of months ago started popping up again. That tells me she was being sold back on to the list. Or I was getting 2 of the same mailpiece in the same week and got it down to one. There was a list above what I had gotten her off of. That lead me to the history of direct mail and Mr. Viguerie. I am sure my gal has been on this guy’s list since the 1970’s.

Like Mr. Viguerie I am using the Federal Election Commission  and the IRS as a tool. Only this time it is to find out who his clients are so I can make mail from American Target Advertising stop. Between Charity Navigator and Open Secrets I have taught myself how to dig into the boat loads of paper that charities and PACs have to file. American Target Advertising is a classy firm that doesn’t blab about their clients on their website. I had to dive into documents that can be hundreds of pages long, to pull out who does the fundraising for each one.


Here are some of their clients:

Eagle Forum
Eagle Forum, Wiki page, run by Phyllis Schlafly. Ballotpedia page, Open Secrets page, Charity Navigator page. Opt-out here eagle@eagleforum.org

Phyllis Schlafly and Richard Viguerie have been friends since the 1960’s. He uses her take down of the Equal Rights Amendment as a case study in his book America’s Right Turn. It is a perfect example of someone using alternative media, to get people who otherwise are on opposite sides of the room, to come together for a common cause.

Drowning in Junk Mail – This Week in Junk Mail 45 pieces

All 45 pieces
After a light week in the 20’s last week, I am back into the 40’s. Is under 50 the new normal? I sure hope so.

I finally got through to HSP Direct last week. After trying every backdoor route I could find, they redesigned their website and posted the email addresses for everyone in the company. Including the CEO Jamie Hogan. Junk mail from them should stop sometime in October.

Judical Watch
Including this massive mailpiece called “IRS Abuse Investigation”. How am I supposed to read this thing with all the crazy blue writing, yellow highlighter, and blacked out words. It looks like a collage freshman attacked this thing after binging on Red Bull and ecstasy.

RNC vs. DNC
The political mashup this week is the opposite of last week. 1 from the RNC and 3 from the Dems:

Republican National Committee, John McCain, fake check
Take a closer look at the check that came from the Republican National Committee, John McCain mailpiece. That looks pretty real to me. How many older people do you think will try to cash it?
