Hi, here is an interesting message. I called the toll free number and
they want requests to be faxed to 513-865-1930 or by snailmail to P-Trax,
PO Box 933, Dayton OH 45401-0933 with your name and current address and
request to be removed from their P-Trax data base.

Hope those in the USA will be interested in the message.

I guess this is only useful to US citizens.  Sorry to everyone else who
gets it.
