I have been blessed with a deluge of mail from companies I never heard of that say in different ways:
“You’re OLD – sign up before your 65th birthday in a few months for our insurance coverage to supplement your Medicare. We’re the best company – you’ll love sending us your money – choose us, please, please, please!!“
I don’t mind reading on the outside and inside of the envelopes that I’m old [now every postal worker knows my age], but I can’t keep from being a little perturbed that so many organizations have been informed of my age and birthdate. Who did that? That’s personal information.
Does the Social Security Administration sell this information to insurance companies? Did a credit card company, bank or some other company I’ve been involved with sell this information?
Since I am the type of person who is not greatly influenced by junk mail, it’s easy to shred the mail and be done with it. BUT it still irritates me that personal information is passed around.
