The three major credit bureaus may have different requirements on how to opt-out. You can write your own letter or use our Sample Opt-Out Letter to request that your personal information not be shared with others or used for promotional purposes. The national credit bureaus also offer a toll-free number that enable consumers to opt-out of all pre-approved credit offers with just one phone call.
