How can unsubscribe from mailing lists?

Question

I have tried to get off a "junk" mailing list by using the unsubscribe method shown at the bottom of the email. However I am still getting their unwanted emails. What else can I do?

Thanks,

Marla

I don't know how long it's been since you asked to be removed, but sometimes it takes a couple weeks to be removed from a mailing list Other possibilities:

* You could be on a mailing list through a chain of one or more other mailing lists.

* If you buy items through the Internet, the vendor may be automatically adding you to other mailing lists.

* Someone else could be signing you up on mailing lists, without your knowledge.
