I receive loads of letters from all kinds of companies with invitations for credit cards, wine clubs and other things I don't want. Since I am moving abroad next month, I am trying stop this. For months I have been returning these letters to sender, but to no avail. Does anyone know if there is a way of stopping this?

The Mailing Preference Service may be able to help.

The MPS is brilliant - I signed up ages ago and get hardly any junk mail at all now.

I'd second that - it's brilliant. Never got anything ever again (fingers crossed)

Thanks from me too about this, I've registered at once. When I'm away the junk mail mounts to the ceiling.

Thanks indeed! I have registered immediately. One worry less!

There's the telephone preference svce as well, although that seems to only last a few years. It worked well for me, when I did it 2 or 3 yrs ago, but the incidence of junk calls is rising now (so maybe I just need to register again).

...if you press it, they will come.

What I find helps agains junk calls is tell them your number is registered, and hence their call will be reported as a nuisance call. Worked wonders.

Yes, I agree. I'd prefer that they didn't call at all, though.

Ivanhoe - are your junk calls from the UK or from overseas? When I registered with the tps, I stopped getting UK based marketing calls almost straight away, but started getting loads of marketing calls from overseas. But I haven't had any of those for ages now, either.
