<<By the way, I must be on some hot list for potential customers. I received 2 other platinum offers that day and have been averaging about 2 offers per day over the last 2 weeks.>>Creditors get your name and address for card solicitations from many different sources. The credit bureaus sell "pre-screened" mail lists to creditors who then use the lists to mail pre-approved credit offers to consumers. One way to slow the flow is to have your credit files blocked from pre-screening by the credit bureaus. To have your credit file "header" (your name and address) suppressed from pre-screening, contact each credit reporting agency below, in writing (preferably by certified-receipt mail):Equifax Credit Information Services, Inc.P.O. Box 740123Atlanta, GA 30374-0123Experian-TMS Opt OutP.O. Box 919Allen, TX 75002TransUnion-TMS Opt OutP.O. Box 97328Jackson, MS 39288As I said at the beginning, creditors get your name and address from many sources (magazine subscriptions, alumni lists, etc.) so this won't stop the flow completely, but it's a start.
