Maybe there really just getting info from you to spam you more?
I just wanted to pass on this important info along to you. You can now “opt out” so that your personal information can’t be compromised. Who likes getting those annoying offers everyday in the mail anyway? The credit bureaus sell your information to these companies….that’s why you get so much junk mail!! I have verified that this is a legitimate site by the credit bureaus. Go to this website and “opt out”.
I just did it, for 5 years. If you “opt out” for life, you have to fill out a form and mail it with your personal info. I wouldn’t recommend it.
Good stuff. I hate receiving all that crap.
Here's all you need to know about the issues at hand, from the Federal Trade Commission.

I opted out with minimal info,ss# not required. But,looks like anyone who knows my name and address(easy to find) could opt me in or out without my permission or knowledge.What am I missing here?

Like I previously mentioned, I deal with people's credit every single day and you would be absolutely stunned on some credit secrets that can help or hurt your credit scores that 90% of the public has no idea about.
Alot of people get all these "your already approved" offers in the mail and think they're approved, (some cases they are, but that's is usually not the case) and then they call in or fill out the form and get their credit run.....again and again etc......
If you "opt out", you shouldn't get all that B.S. mail.
I like the junk mail....makes me feel like i'm somebody.
Just Kiddin....thanks for passin it on.
