Do you remember how people used to be so angry with all the AOL cds that would be free in the mail and magazines and all that? Here are some links if you forgot: http://www.nomoreaolcds.com/ and http://www.aolcollecting.com/ .
Well I have 2 new complaints to add to the list and it seems like whever I check my work PO box I have one from Stamps.com and at least twice weekly I get one kind of AMEX junk mail at home.
I think AMEX has to do with the fact I set up a LLC at my home address, and the mails worked, I actually signed up for one of their Small business cards, a AMEX Platinum Business Card to be exact, yet the mail still keeps coming. They send me snail mail for Platinum Business, Gold Business, Blue, etc. These usually come in window envelopes with a fake plastic CC in them, and then every other week they send a full size envelope to try and get me to sign up for an air miles AMEX. It makes no sense.
Even more similar to AOL is the Stamps.com mailers. They come in 2 varieties, one that contains a free cd, and one that is just a pamphlet. I think I have sent 3 letters EVER since I started this business and I do everything by fax or email… yet these cds and cardstock mailers keep coming into my PO box. I think the post office must have sold my address to them.
I check the po box probably twice a week and I am guaranteed to have some sort of "ship directly from your computer" type letter in my mailbox per week. We are an internet company, never send mail, and I care for the environment a bit… how do you make this stop?
Who do you get tons of traditional (snail mail) spam mail from?
