Insight

Insight Broadband (Now owned by Time Warner) is also really bad with this.

They send me 2-3 letters per week disquised as other companies. Then when I open the letter it's the same "LIMITED TIME ONLY" message about buying a TV package.

They take it a step farther though. About once per month I get a phone call from some "quality control" person to make sure my "service is working well"... "Oh it is?...Well can I interest you in upgrading your service to include TV with this limited time offer?"

YES! Insight is the king of that... looks like an official letter from something important then you open and it's "Insight" ... I finally memorized their mailing address and just looking knew it was Insight without opening it.. I would sometimes get 3-4 pieces of mail from them a week.

Charter is horrid about that around here. They usually disguise it as something important, but the dead give away is that it is usually addressed to "Neighbor" Or "Current Resident." Since no one by those names live here, I write "return to sender, does not live here" on it and stick it back in the outgoing box. No way I am switching from FIOS to Charter lol.

Take a look at the postmark. If it says "presorted standard" it's guaranteed to be junk mail.
