    Default Credit Cards pimping my info

    Iím convinced that my loyalty rewards program is selling my information. Iíve had the same visa creditcard for some time, but I recently upgraded to a loyalty program they offer, and now I get all kinds of spam and junkmail. about stocks and mortgages. Anyone know about credit card companies doing this?

    There's a way arounf that stuff if you sign up on a proxy site like leveragecard.com. You gat an account through them to organize all your rewards programs, then give that account info to the rewards/loyalty programs you sign up for, not your direct info. That way all the spam goes to the site, and not you.

    If you knew the answer already then why not just send yourself an email or note to self, if you catch my drift.
