Subject:junk mail and junk phone calls From:Susan Fowler <sfowler -at- EJV -dot- COM> Date:Fri, 24 Feb 1995 08:51:24 EST
It's a relatively new federal law that callers cannot continue to call you if
you tell them to stop. (I just went through this.) States may add their own
requirements to the federal law, which might account for differences. Contact
your state's attorney general for details.
The mail-order association that takes your name off junk mail and junk
telemarketing lists is the Direct Mail [or Mailers] Association. Look in your
phone book for a listing. There's definitely an office in New York City, so if
necessary you can call here..
