How does it work?

Our system is simple. We've built a massive database of company information. When we identify your photo, we use this information to instantly submit a request on your behalf. If we don't know about the company already, our database discovers what we need to know automatically.

Recent changes:

Last update screwed up. Scan mail doesn't work! Was excellent! Had to re-install from dated copy to scan new junk mail. Please fix! USER X

Works Great! I rented my house after 17 years and wanted to get rid of all the junk going there. It takes some time to get it all, but this app really works!!

It Actually Works NEW REVIEW...It stopped working and then I not only got all the previous mags but a whole slew more! I changed my password here, & it won't take it. so it's not only useless, it's done what I feared....I'm getting MORE JUNK mail! OLDIt seems to take a long time, but gradually the junk snail mail decreased. I'm still concerned that being on this list might generate even more junk snail mail. I had to sign in since the update which is another hassle. I hope I don't have to do that each time. Since the update, the scanning process is somewhat different. It's interesting that there're no directions. It's trial & error to do the right sequence.

Great use but memory leak Awesome concept, easy to use and it seems to work too. But it never goes away in background and memory occupied while if foreground will never be freed.
