Contests and sweepstakes can be very enticing to enter, and once you do you realize you’ve been hooked into receiving other types of junk mail from these companies that now have your personal information.
With a few easy steps you can stop receiving sweepstakes notices and the other related information that may also be mailed out.

Any time you provide your name, address, phone number and/or email address when you enter contests or sweepstakes, you open yourself up to unwanted mail or phone calls.

And let us know if you’re the next big winner!
