The mailings are headed, “2016 Benefit Information for Missouri Citizens Only.” Each asks that the recipient’s name, spouse’s name, ages, and a phone number be returned to Direct Data Services at a postal box in Marietta.
BBB offers the following tips for consumers receiving mailings on life or health insurance or related benefits:
• Be wary of any mailer offering free publications, information or gifts. These often are inducements to get you to provide personal contact information.
• Never respond to any mailing and never provide personal information to anyone unless you know specifically who is requesting it and why.
• By responding to a mailing, you may be giving a telemarketer approval to contact you.
• Research the business and owners carefully before paying any money. Check the company’s BBB business review at www.bbb.org or by calling 314-645-3300.
