Typical spam mail that ends up in my home are those of financial loans, magazine subscriptions, and product fliers. I don't know how they got hold of my address. I have given my contact details to colleagues that I trust, such as PR and marketing people who often send me product samples for review. I'm sure that they don't share my contact details to other people without my consent.
Since I can't do anything about it for now and until we have an anti-junk mail service here in the country, I have thought of these ways to prohibit others from getting my contact details:
- Shredding bills and other old documents containing my home address.
- Not giving my complete address in unimportant forms (e.g. supermarket surveys, product registration cards, etc.).
- Contacting my bank and credit card company to ask them not to share my contact details.
