RE: Cease and desist from [Harassing/Junk Mail/Spam/Telemarketing/Computer popup ads.]
Dear [Data Broker]:
This CEASE AND DESIST ORDER is to inform you that your persistent actions including but not limited to selling my personal information, filling my mailbox with junk mail, filling my email with spam, having criminals and others violate law and call my home phone at all hours have become unbearable. You are ORDERED TO STOP such activities immediately as they are being done in violation of the law.
I have the right to remain free from these activities as they constitute a violation of my legal right to be let alone, and I will pursue any legal remedies available to me against you if these activities continue. These remedies include but are not limited to: contacting law enforcement to obtain criminal sanctions against you, and suing you civilly for damages I have incurred as a result of your actions.
I hereby notify you in written notice that my information is my property. All former and future agreements made or expressed either directly or indirectly with any third party are hereby rescinded.
Again, you must IMMEDIATELY STOP selling my identifiable information and send me written confirmation that you will stop such activities. You risk incurring some very severe legal consequences if you fail to comply with this demand.
This letter acts as your final warning to discontinue this unwanted conduct before I pursue legal actions against you. At this time, I am not contacting the authorities or filing civil suit against you, as I hope we can resolve this matter without authoritative involvement. I am not under any circumstances, however, waiving any legal rights I have presently, or future legal remedies against you by sending you this letter. This order acts as ONE FINAL CHANCE for you to cease your illegal activities before I exercise my rights.
To ensure compliance with this letter, and to halt any legal action I may take against you, I require you to fill in and sign the attached form and mail it back to me within 10 days of your receipt of this letter. Failure to do so will act as evidence of your infringement upon my legal rights, and I will immediately seek legal avenues to remedy the situation.
