As part of our citywide Shred Day at Channel Six, we're taking a look at one way to stop getting those items that we constantly have to feed into our shredders to avoid an identity thief getting their hands on.
Pre-approved credit card offers pile up in a lot of our homes and throwing them away without shredding them can be dangerous. There are documented cases of these being filled out after they were torn in half and a card was still issued.
The easiest way to eliminate those offers is to use the website Optoutprescreen.com. We have a link on this story.
I did it for myself and it took less than five minutes. There are options to eliminate the offers for different time periods including permanently. By clicking to cut these offers off from credit cards you will also eliminate offers from insurance companies offering you lower rates to switch.
