Preventing Credit Card mail

You are given two choices in regards to opting out of pre-approved and pre-screened credit card offers: either opt out of them for five years, or opt out of them permanently (If you don’t mind giving your Social Security number).

  • To Opt Out for Five Years: You can either call the number 1-888-5-OPT-OUT (1-888-567-8688) or visit OptOutPrescreen.com.
  • To Opt Out Permanently: You can also start the process of permanent opt-out through OptOutPrescreen.com. However, you need to print the application out, sign it, and send it in. If you do not happen to have the internet, then you can request an application through the mail. In the time between when you initiate this process and when you return the form to the designated address, you will automatically be opted into the 5-year list removal

It was great finding out that there is a way to stop these types of mailings. However, choosing to have your name removed from the lists used for pre-approved and pre-screened solicitations does not mean you will never receive another credit card offer again. It just means that you will not receive a credit card offer that is based on the credit records maintained by the Credit Reporting Agencies. In order to stop solicitations from other places, you will need to write them individually to request your name and address to be taken off of their list.

Another way:

They all come with pre-paid envelopes. It costs these companies more to have that envelope returned than it does to send the mail out.

Simply take their letter, write across it, “Remove me from your mailing list” and send it back to them in their envelope.

It might take more than one time, but believe me, you’ll get removed from their mailings very quickly.

A New Time To Make a Difference

I see some people have been in denial of their creative sense for so long that they forgot what they can do!  They come from battered homes where they have been neglected or they are always told what to do.  They are not taught to think for themselves and to be self-reliant.  We need mentors that can mentor children as well as adults or we will sink back into another dark age.  Do you know there are many children now that are not getting inoculated out of fear and ignorance.  We have an information age here but what info are we feeding our children.  Its time for our organizations and businesses as a whole to get together to gain a unified vision.  We have the resources but we are largely divided.  It’s time for planning together.  And we have to proactively come against the placid apathy in a large part of our community and show hope for better, more creative and healthier lives.  One way to get into our creative side is to take time to go to art performances and craft fairs and festivals.  There is one coming up: Community Art festival  June 25, 2016.  http://pinehillsperforms.org/PH West Oaks Art FestivalIn our past history there were many that found ways to break out of destructive and meaningless lifestyles when they found a cause with others to progress and make a positive difference in this world.  The effort can start with our local area.  Maybe you are seeing some acts of compassion, people helping others.  Let us know so we can spread the word and get in touch with these people to honor and help them in their endeavor.  We, here at the OV Chamber, are even reaching out to neighboring communities with organizations who are brainstorming ways to get us out of our poverty and violence.  We can reason together and accomplish so much more.  Have hope that help is on the way.  Come to our meeting June 21st, 7pm and find out face to face what is happening on the positive side.  You are not hearing it all if you are just listening to the TV NEWS.  Exciting things are happening!

OV Chamber Building Design

A committee is being formed to improve the appearance of the Chamber building.

Any suggestions are welcomed.

We are going to get rid of the clothes from the Clothes Drive.  So please come and take what you want.

We are also contacting different Scout Troops to find a home for the Scouting Materials.

Are We Progressing?

2015 Where are we headed?

I, the President of the OV Chamber, see some people have been in denial of their creative sense for so long that they forgot what they can do!  Or even who they are. I imagine they come from battered homes where they have been neglected or they are always told what to do.  They are not taught to think for themselves and to be self-reliant as well as work together for a positive cause.  I was brought up differently — listening to my conscience.  It’s a New Year and a New Day.  It’s time to get up and get going.
