Cell phone numbers go public this month - put yourself on the DO NOT CALL LIST
Hi Everyone,

Just a reminder. And please share this with your co-workers and friends.

REMEMBER: Cell Phone Numbers Go Public this 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

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 ... It takes about 20 seconds

NO TRUTH TO RUMOR THAT CELL PHONE NUMBERS WILL BE MADE AVAILABLE TO TELEMARKETERS

Washington, DC --For several years there has been a rumor circulating, mostly by e-mail,
that a nationwide directory of cell phone numbers will be made available to telemarketers, and
that consumers will start receiving telemarketing calls on their cell phones.

There is no truth to this rumor. Cell phone numbers are not being released to telemarketers,
and you will not soon be getting telemarketing calls on your cell phone. FCC rules prohibit the
use of autodialers and prerecorded messages to call cell phones without the consumer’s consent.
Thus, most telemarketers are barred from contacting consumers on their cell phones.

The e-mail spreading the rumor often suggests that consumers put their cell phone numbers
on the National Do-Not-Call Registry by going on-line at www.donotcall.govor by calling 1-
888-382-1222. This is the correct contact information for the National Do-Not-Call Registry.
Consumers may register their cell phone numbers as an extra protection against unwanted
telemarketing calls, although most telemarketing calls to cell phones would be illegal regardless
of whether the number is listed on the Do-Not-Call Registry.

For more information on the government’s Do-Not-Call Registry, go to www.donotcall.gov.

Not sure about the OP's stuff, but there are places where you can register to be put on do-not-call-lists. I've done it a time or 2 and I NEVER get calls anymore. Well, no more than one every couple months. Worth tracking this down if you're hassled. Maybe try direct marketing association in a search.

I've had to unplug the phone and screen calls at home due to those calls. I'm convinced most are not even sales calls but some fed recording.

No. This was not true when the notice first circulated in 2004 and it is not true now. No.
