    According to DuPage County (Illinois) Ripples Newsletter from the
    Solid Waste Education Center, 550 Center Avenue, Suite A, Carol
    Stream, Illinois 60188,
    some 2,870,000 (2 billion, 870 million!) credit card applications
    were sent out in 1999. Of that, 1% responded! As they said, in the
    business world, this is considered a successful mailing!

    To have your name removed from credit card mailing lists, send a
    name-request removal to each of the following credit bureaus:

    Equifax Options
    PO Box 740123
    Atlanta, GA 30374-0123

    TRW - Target Marketing Services
    Consumer Opt Out
    701 TRW Parkway
    Allen, TX 75013

    Trans Union
    TransMark Inc
    555 West Adams Street
    Chicago, IL 60601

    I sent mine. . . maybe I'll get about a hundred fewer requests!
