Digital Direct Marketing Program

I just got an email that says VZ is going to start sending me ads while I am on line and there is NOTHING I can do to opt out.  i can only opy out of being targeted with ads based on my demographics.  **bleep** is up with this?  I do not pay vZ to spam me with ads.  VZ cleverly tried to pass it off as an added service to customers but the bottom line is VZ is selling space to advertiser that can spam us with their ads.  I do NOT want any ads fed to me by VZ.  If VZ is going to do this and not allow me to opt out of their ads, I want to termintae my services and NOT pay any early term fees since VZ is the one who is making  major change to the agreement of services.  Please advise what is up with this and how I can either block these ads 100% or have a tech come get all of the VZ equipment out of my house.

Thank you for your message letting me know that Verizon has decided to become a SPAM lord.  It kind of makes your spam support and spam blocking irrelevant since the service I PAY for is now going to SPAM me whether I want it or NOT.  THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!!!!  And be assured, the next time I have a choice, I will be sure to choose anyone but Verizon.

Install Adblock Plus and get it over with. They'll be setting up equipment and getting no return out of it from that point.

Also, the e-mail you received contains a link to opt-out. You might need to visit MyVerizon and log in first before clicking that link.

I just got the message in the e-mail,too. Yes, you can click on the word "here" to opt out; ...but......you get to the VZ page first and you have to sign in   AGAIN (?)  and then there is no OPT-OUT field/link etc!!  First I thought, OK wait another day, Verizon may not have the link set up yet, but a day later nothing new.

I had to call VZ. The third person I got forwarded to finally was able to get me to the page where you actually can opt out.

HOWEVER: Verizon should not have the customer to jump through hoops to find the buried page! 

----- Instead: Verizon should ask the customer if they want to OPT IN  to such programs  not to OPT OUT.---

You can opt out of the TARGETD ads, BUT you cannot opt out of getting spammed.  Re-read the email

Great directions. No one would be able to navigate the deletion of this Digital Direct Program without them. Thanks. I've deleted it.
