The form asks for your SSN but it is NOT required.
"Your Social Security Number is not required to process an Opt-Out request through OptOutPrescreen.com," the FAQ explains. "However, we strongly urge you to provide this information because it helps to ensure that we can successfully process your request."
The choice is yours.
Are you ready to say goodbye to junk mail forever?
