Tired of junk mail – check out the “Drowning in Junk Mail” website: https://drowndinginmail.wordpress.com/

In all the years I have worked hard to stop receiving junk mail, I have never seen as informative a website as “Drowning in Junk Mail” - https://drowndinginmail.wordpress.com/
The “Drowning in Junk Mail” latest post, “How to Stop Mail for a Deceased Person
OCTOBER 14, 2015 - https://drowndinginmail.wordpress.com/ is extremely informative. And timely for me since my family just got junk mail from The Nature Conservancy to a family member that passed away years ago. It made me very sad.
“AARP has a great check list of things to do when someone dies. I am going to expand on the section about what to do with a deceased person’s mail….”
Two other recent posts from which I got a great deal of value are found here: Drowning in Junk Mail – How to Opt-out of Junk Mail Using a DMA Ethics Complaint - JANUARY 23, 2015: https://drowndinginmail.wordpress.com/2015/01/23/drowning-in-junk-mail-how-to-opt-out-of-junk-mail-using-a-dma-ethics-complaint/

In the years I have worked hard to stop the volume of junk mail I receive from marketers, charities and scams, I cannot recall finding a more informative website.
Fortunately, years into the fray, I have to realize that there is no silver bullet and that it is a never-ending fray and one needs to be constantly vigilant.
I truly believe in my heart that there is a special place in hell for the direct mail junk mail marketers.
DMA ethics guidelines:
Commitment to Consumer Choice (CCC) program
They can send complaints to non-members, but they cannot guarantee that the non-member will stop sending mail.
There are a couple of ways to file a complaint with the Ethics Board at the DMA:
The best way is to fill out the online form, you can upload photos and emails.
Or you can go old school and mail in an example of the junk mail and a complaint letter to:
Direct Marketing Association
Corporate & Social Responsibility (CSR) Department
1615 L St. NW Suite 1100
Washington, DC 20036-5624
