Why are we getting many calls/mailings for "business" charge accounts?

    I seems like lately every week I get multiple calls and/or mailings for either credit cards or other services to "help" my WCHA business.

    Why are I/we(?) getting this stuff and more importantly, how do we stop it?

    Dan,

    They are not e-mails, but either phone calls or hard mail. They always think that I am a business, ie, Wooden Canoe Heritage Ass of MN.

    That is where the latter two links come in.

    Thanks but being that we rarely got this stuff before and now are getting a bunch with the connection/label of the WCHA, I was hoping maybe there was a way to cut it off at the source and not at the "tail".

    And besides, I enjoy playing with the political fund raisers when they call. (though I suspect they now have a note to hang-up if a male answers. )

    Question to other members, is anybody else getting this stuff.

    Not getting any stuff here, Dan.
    Any other Minnesota chapter folks getting this?

    Thanks Guys,

    Maybe it's just me. I asked Barry and he isn't getting any either.

    I did relate to the callers that I'm not a business and they both "claimed" they were going to "make a note".

    I'm not getting calls like this. Your public service of occupying the political organizations who call is much appreciated so that they have less time to annoy other people. I will occasionally say "please hold on while I go get my hearing aid" but they never seem to be there when I come back much later.
