Do you think we should get paid for the sale of our personal and credit information.
We all receive prexscreened offers in the mail for products and services at least once a week if not more. Your service providers, banks, local governments, credit reproting agencies, and many internet sites sell you personal and credit information for a profit. Would it not be nice to make some of that money too? Think about that the next time you pay for your own credit report or pay that monthly fee for a credit monitoring service. You pay more for you own information by over a thousand percent than a credit product or service provider does to get most of the same information.
I don't think that we should be paid for the sake of getting the money. The amounts would be too small and it's not worth the hassle.
However, if it stopped people abusing lists; made them more careful about removing people who asked not to be mailed etc, then it would be worth it.
