Oh SHIT

If you are like me, you receive lots and lots (and lots and lots) of credit card applications in the mail. Also, if you are like me, you rip them in half before throwing them away. I always thought that was sufficient, until I read this.

Now what.. are we to be required to BURN our junk mail now for safety? If the companies aren't being careful about it, someone has to be.

I propose we just pop the blank applications back into their little pre-paid envelopes and mail them back to the companies. Let it be their problem. I think I'll start doing that.

That's evil, and by evil I mean funny.

I have done similar to what you suggest in the past (only a couple times), but I add a bit of a twist. If I was to receive...say a Visa...and an American Express at the same time...I would place each application in the others' return envelope and mail em off....you know they just loved opening those....
Maybe I should start back up with that again...although lately they've been burned..I never put anything with any info on me in my trash....color me paranoid if you like....but I stand my ground...ain't gettin none of this!!!!
