Opting-out of FFCU offers*
You have the right to opt-out of receiving marketing related offers from First Financial Credit Union. By opting-out, your name will be removed from the marketing related mailing and telephone lists generated by First Financial. This means that you will no longer receive direct mail offers such as pre-approvals or similar offers over the telephone. It also means that your public information will not be shared with partnering third-party companies of First Financial.
To opt-out of the services, you must make it known to First Financial Credit Union by calling (800) 537-8491.
Opting-out of non-FFCU offers*
Tired of getting incessant credit card offers and credit related mailing? If so, you can greatly reduce the number of mailed credit solicitations by opting-out with the 4 major credit reporting bureaus: Experian, Trans Union, Equifax, Innovis.
It is actually very easy to opt-out with these bureaus. They have provided a service that opts you out of credit solicitations by calling one number:
(888) 5-OPTOUT (888) 567-8688
You will be requested to provide some personal information and once entered, you will be opted-out for a designated period of time (options are explained on the call). While this service works well to nearly eliminate mailed credit solicitation, it will not eliminate all mailings. You may need to call certain credit granting companies that solicit you to eliminate all solicitation.
The National Do Not Call Registry*
The National Do Not Call Registry is open for business, putting consumers in charge of the telemarketing calls they get at home. The Federal Government created the national registry to make it easier and more efficient for you to stop getting telemarketing sales calls you don’t want. You can register online at DONOTCALL.GOV if you have an active email address. You can call toll-free, 1-888-382-1222 (TTY 1-866-290-4236), from the number you wish to register. Registration is free.
The Federal Trade Commission, the Federal Communications Commission, and participating states are scheduled to begin enforcing the National Do Not Call Registry on Oct. 1, 2003. That’s when consumers who put their numbers on the registry by August 31, 2003 will notice a reduction in the number of telemarketing calls they get. Placing your number on the National Do Not Call Registry will stop most, but not all, telemarketing calls. Telemarketing firms also have lists of people who do not want to be contacted. If you do not want to be contacted, please inform the caller at the time of the call.
