What to do about porno newsletter that keeps being mailed to me at my parents house?

Alright, a friend signed me up for this porno newsletter thing a few years back as retaliation for me signing them up for some lingerie for amputees catalog. Anyway, I get these letters (non-offensive outside) that have this big b&w porno catalog of all these 70s prons. Anyway, I emailed the company to remove me from the list, but no dice. How to I get these to stop coming to my [parents] house? Do I write "refused" or "return to sender" or what? Thanks.

I had a problem like this. The Post Office has a porno form: You just fill it out and attach the "offensive" mail to it and hand it in. Either they block the mail or fine the company if anything in the future comes, don't know which.

Form 1500: http://www.usps.com/forms/allforms.htm

fill out a change of address so they can go directly to you. that way you don't have to make the extra trip pick em up, and can start reading them sooner.

thanks for the suggestions. I'm going to write them a letter asking to be removed. if that doesn't work then I'll do the usps thing. my only concern is that they'll block all porno from me at any address and I may want to order something down the road. plus, in the event that my nude modeling career takes off, I'll be getting plenty of offers.

All you have to do is filling out the form saying that you want the one particular mailer blocked.

well, sent the newsletter to the Post office and they sent me a prohibitory order back in August (8/4). then, yesterday, I received another newsletter. So the prohibitionary order says to send it to them and they'll take the action. I assume the company will be fined....yes? Do I get anything out of it.....other than not getting the newsletter anymore?

Hmm... I like '70s pRon... show me the bush!

Anyway, if you really want to get it stopped... send a letter explaining that they are sending the catalogs to a minor and to stop it immediately.

Don't they have an 800 number?

Give 'em an obscene phone call.
