Identity Thieves May Use Unsolicited Credit Offers to Gather Information. Consider Opting Out.
Everyone gets unsolicited credit offers in the mail, but not all of these credit offers are legitimate. Identity thieves may send out these offers in an attempt to gather personal information from you. Consider opting out of all unsolicited credit card offers. If you are interested in a credit card, apply directly with the credit card service rather than responding back to unsolicited mail and only work with reputable credit card companies.
