Cell Phone
Numbers Go Public this week. REMINDER... all cell phone numbers are being
released to telemarketing companies tomorrow and you will start to receive sale
calls.
To prevent
this, call the following number from your cell phone:
TUV-FUC-1222.(Letters replace real numbers)
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.
just the facts

I googled this and it said that this is an urban legend. According to the most recent article, while the cell phone companies are making a list it will not be in general distribution and a cell phone number will not be included without the phone owner's request and permission.

Yet another gem from the Detailer. When you fall for an e-mail scam, you should at least make sure it's a new one. this puppy is four years old.

And we're supposed to take your word on how to fix Hanover. Laughable.

Read again... it is a REMINDER because it is only good for 5 years.

Dude, just quit while you are ahead. That is, if you were ever ahead in this discussion in the first place, which I doubt.
Thanks

Thanks for the reminder, despite what others think, I read it right the first time. Detailer, you need to change your name. You could post on here that the grass is green and SOME people would disagree with you, only because it is you. Some people are out to discredit you so badly, they can't see the forest for the trees. Keep up the good work.

Thanks-- ask.com does say telemarketers coming after you immediately will not happen, but they will have access to the cell numbers. It's good forever when you enter your number for DNC, but it's still good to confirm it, which you can also do online at https://www.donotcall.gov/

Actually, the grass is brown right now, and we have no trees because of Latschar here in Gettysburg.

Howdy Detailer :)

Urban legend through and through. Cell phone numbers are not going to be released to telemarketing companies and it is illegal for ANY telemarketer to contact you by cell phone without your consent.

https://www.donotcall.gov/

On the homepage:
Your registration will not expire. Telephone numbers placed on the National Do Not Call Registry will remain on it permanently due to the Do-Not-Call Improvement Act of 2007, which became law in February 2008. Read more about it at http://www.ftc.gov/opa/2008/04/dncfyi.shtm .

Read the FAQs on the FTC website:
http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/edu/pubs/consumer/aler...

Sheesh! Go to the source people.

Keep in mind that if you are a customer of a business, or if you have an account with a business, they can still call you regarding the matter with which you have in common. So it is not going to stop those pesky bill collectors!

And registering with the federal DNC list covers you under any state DNC list as well.

Used to be in telemarketing, had to scrub our database when this law went into effect. Wound up scrubbing telemarketing dept. altogether, too much BS.

I'm on the wrong side of the fence because when my grass is brown, I smoke it.

If you read it right, you were still misinformed. He was wrong.
