If you have student loans or other forms of credit, you may be solicited by companies asking you to purchase their products and services.
That’s in part because Sallie Mae and other finance companies report your payment information (name, address, phone number, email address, etc.) to the national credit reporting agencies. If you do not want to receive marketing solicitations, you can do the following:
Block credit agencies from selling your name
If you receive unwanted "prescreened" offers of credit and wish to opt out, visit OptOutPrescreen.com or call 888-567-8688.
Remove your name from telemarketing call lists
To stop individual telemarketers from calling you, you can ask them to put you on their "Do Not Call" list. At your request, the company is required by federal law to stop calling you.
To stop all companies from telemarketing to you, you may enroll in the National Do Not Call Registry. Visit their site at DoNotCall.gov or call 888-382-1222.
If your telephone number is in this registry, telemarketers may not call you to sell goods and services unless you have a previous business relationship with them.
Remove your name from postal mail lists
The Direct Marketing Association's (DMA) Mail Preference Service (MPS) lets you opt out of receiving unsolicited commercial mail from many national companies for five years. When you register with this service, your name will be put on a "delete" file and made available to direct-mail marketers and organizations. This will reduce most of your unsolicited mail. However, your registration will not stop mailings from organizations that do not use the DMA's Mail Preference Service. To register with DMA's Mail Preference Service, go to dmachoice.org or mail your request with a $1 processing fee to:
