    Default Cell Phone Telemarketing



    I got this today, not sure if it's accurate but figure someone can chime in on that.

    _________________________________

    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: 1-888-382-1222 .
    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.
    Y ou 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. .

    Snopes says false: http://www.snopes.com/politics/business/cell411.asp

    I did have a phisher call my cell this past week. There was some message about my credit card at some bank I never heard of being restricted. Nothing came of it and I was relieved to find it was a simple scam: http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-847-336-6111

    :lol: Thanks for checking, I should have since I get emails from my mother all the time asking if one she got can be true and tell her to check with Snopes. I should practise what I preach. :o
