Maintaining Your Privacy and Security

Ever wonder where in the world a direct marketer found your name. It is quite possible that they acquire it from either a mail listing or a credit bureau. One possible way to get off of a list is by either calling or writing one of the three big credit-reporting agencies. You can either call them to remove your name for a two year period or permanently, all it takes is five minutes of your time (its nice they have 800 numbers).

One call to the credit-reporting agencies where they cross share information to remove you.

Transunion 1-888-5OPT OUT (567-8688) 

TRW  1-800-493-2392

Equifax 1-800-556-4711

Experian 1-800-353-0809

Beware they will ask for your social security number. 

Social Security Administration (fraud line): 1-800-269-0271

On Lexis-Nexis, a powerful search engine, contains information from your social security number to your birth date (even if it is off by a month), credit history, mortgage information etc.
