How do I get my son off a church mailing list

My son signed up for some mailing list thing (peter popoff). I guess it`s supposed to be a Christian org. but it`s strange to me. He keeps getting letters asking for money and of course if he gives the money he`ll get what we wants, so says the letter. I tried throwing the letters away, but my son hides them when he finds them.He is soon to be 18 but he doesn`t even have a job to give money. I`m sick of the letters any ideas on what to do.? Thanks

  • If there are no details that you can find then you need to tell your son that it's not always possible to give money and tell him to please ignore the letters. Or just intercept the post as much as you can!

  • Send them a letter requesting his removal. Make sure you mention they are soliciting donations from your MINOR SON.

  • Put a big fat REFUSED across the envelope and put it BACK in the mailbox.

  • Write a letter or call and tell them that they are soliciting money from a MINOR and they need to stop. You can also write REFUSED on the enevelope and send it back and continue to do that until they no longer send them.
