I want to know who updates the mailing lists that companies can purchase for marketing purposes. I’d also like to know how often they’re updated.
I got married, changed my last name and relocated from Chicago to Small Town, Alabama in 2003. For some reason my mom has started receiving mail at my address. It’s always junk so just toss it in the trash but in the last month they’ve increased in number and mom has received three letters from a local Alabama State Farm Insurance agent offering to save her money on her auto insurance. After the third offer I had to call their office and tell them I don’t know where they get their information from but they’re wasting their stamps.
#1 My mom does not and never has lived in Alabama
#2 My mom does not and never has had a drivers license
#3 My mom passed away in 1994
In the last 8 years mom has also received quotes for life insurance which I’m tempted to fill out then try to collect and see what they say. She has great credit and receives pre-approved credit card offers with low interest rates and today she received a pharmacy discount card from Health Benefits Network. Tomorrow I think I’ll call and inform them that 17 years ago she discovered a way to get off and stay off prescription drugs. But then again it is good for all members of her family…….
