Get Answers to Your Banking Questions

How can I stop receiving credit solicitations? How do I stop a specific bank from sending me solicitations?

You can stop receiving unsolicited "preapproved" credit card offers by having your name removed from the credit reporting agency mailing lists. Call (888) 5-OPT-OUT (that is, (888) 567-8688) or visit OptOutPrescreen.com.

If the solicitations are coming from a specific bank, call or write to the bank, requesting that it stop sending the solicitations.

You can also contact your present creditors and ask to be placed on their "Do Not Solicit List."

More detailed information is available at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau website.
