Cell Phone Numbers Go Public next month

Postby George Davidson » Sat, May 23 2009, 8:39AM

REMEMBER: Cell Phone Numbers Go Public next month.

REMINDER.... all cell phone numbers are being released to telemarketing companies and you will start to receive sales calls.

........ YOU WILL BE CHARGED FOR THESE CALLS
Even if the message is saved on your phone, you will be charged for the minutes to listen to it.

To prevent this, call the following number from your cell phone: 888-382-1222 .
It is the National DO NOT CALL list. It will only take a minute of your time. It blocks your number for five (5) years. You must call from the cell phone number you want to have blocked. You cannot call from a different phone number.

HELP OTHERS BY PASSING THIS ON TO ALL YOUR FRIENDS.. It takes about 20 seconds.

It appears that his is a rather virulent hoax that has been going around for a couple of years.

According to Yahoo!Tech...

Your Cell Phone Number Is NOT Being Sold to Telemarketers

I checked on this and if you go to:

http://www.donotcall.gov

You can register your phone numbers (Cell and Home) and block these types of calls. Remember though you can still be contacted by not for profits :cry: , churches :D , companies you contacted for information :?: and politicians :evil: (Joy Joy)

Hope this is useful.

Neal,

Don't do that. We have that in Canada and some companies out of the country buy the phone list nd now you get calls from crooks of other country. I did register and now I get more calls then before. :x
