Your credit info goes public July 1, 2003
Your Credit: Personal Information goes public Starting July 1st,
2003, the four major credit bureaus in the US (Equifax, etc.) will be
allowed to release credit info, mailing addresses, phone numbers, etc., to
ANYONE who requests it.
If you do not want to be included in this release of your personal
information, you can call 1-888-567-8688.
Once the message starts you will want option #2 (even though option#1
refers to this email, push #2) and then option #2. Be sure to listen
closely, the first option is only for a two-year period. Make sure you wait
until they prompt for the second option, which opts you out FOREVER.
You should receive their paperwork in the mail confirming the
“opting out” in less than one week after making the call.
