BBB Complaint Gets Dell To Pledge To Stop Sending Catalogs

Two Fridays ago I filed a Better Business Bureau complaint against Dell because they ignored my repeated cries to please remove me from their catalog mailing list, and today I got this following message from Dell’s corporate office (listen here). The nice lady says she located my address and is removing it from their system. This is redundant as some other Dell execs say they’ve finally got my address removed but it does show that filing a BBB complaint does work for getting Dell to promise to stop sending you junk mail (we’ll have to see what the mail man brings, or rather, doesn’t bring, to know whether it worked completely). Here’s where you can go to easily file one online.
