Fred's Story: Young Son Received Credit Offer by Swimming Program Releasing His Information

Financial Stories

Fred's son (age 10) received a pre-approved credit offer in the mail. Fred traced the offer back to the national athletic organization that oversees the swimming program in which his son participated. Angered that the organization would release the names and addresses of its young participants, he took his son out of the swimming program.
