Default Do you get this much

Spam?



This is the ammount of unsolicited mail l received so far just this month.

I am not sure what happened since:

- I never give my address out online unless I am ordering something from a trusted site
- My name, address, and phone number are unlisted
- I am on the do not call list.


I have a feeling it is the last one, since the credit card companies cannot call me they send me stuff instead.

I am half tempted to send in every application there so I can have 16 credit cards.

I especially love the ones that come with the postage paid envelopes inside....I mail them back with each other'* unfilled applications inside. Just make sure to shred your name and address first.

Ha thats great I've heard of someone doing that b4 but it was on this site http://maddox.xmission.com/ funny site BTW.



But in the last week I must have recieved atleast 2 of those same Chase CC apps you have there. I'm not sure how much junk like that I get each month since I usally file it into the shreader soon after seeing it.

why waste good money? throw some old homeworks or local grocery adds or even a newspaper in there, heck, swap around the letters to get you to sign up and send them back offers from different CC companies.

I saw a thing (may have been on here) where you can ship up to 72 pounds on one of those postage paid envelopes. A guy sent old tires in a box to the people that were sending him jink, and they had to foot the bill.

I must get that much each week,...Corvette crazy, I like your idea. I'm gonna start mixing the response letters into other companies envelopes-inking out my name and adding Barney P. Dinosaur.
Important thing to remember the funding market is phat with cash and approving anyone that breaths so rip em up good !/ or some kid might put an adddress change on the preapproved invitation and be riding a new $800 board at your expense....It'* happening.
