WARNING! fyi

21 posts in this topic

I got an email from my brother-in-law from cali yesterday stating that today all cell #'s are open to the public for telemarketing.He sells phone systems for a living so I took his advice and called my provider and put my # on a no solicitation list.There is also a national # that you can call and have your # put on there.But I do not think I can post it here.I believe that is why you saw the"spiders" here almost double overnight.Careful where you post your phone #.

Thanks meatfish.

Not sure where I should have posted this but this was the closest fit!

I had my first ever telemarketing call last night on my cell. It wasn't a good experience for the caller.

There is no such thing as a cell phone do not call list at this time.

These emails are all based on a opt in 411 service that has never seen the light of day.

As a matter of fact, registering a cell phone might actually put you on some sort of list where as right now cell phone numbers are not listed wink

I cant wait to get my first call. They will not be happy when they speak to me. Then I will figure out to get on the blocked list. Has anybody ever purchased something or anything other than hanging up? I cant imagine it can be that profitable of a business?

If it wasn't very profitable there wouldn't be very many. They find enough people to sell things to and do pretty well financially.

They prey on the vulnerable. For every 10 people that hang up on them, they find one to go through their spiel to. Pretty sad

If I do pick up and talk to them especially if they are looking for my wife I tell them she just passed away. The pause and stammering is usually pretty good grin

Dtro is right, I have never received nor registered and have never received a call. By registering you are now on a list. Where it goes is anybodys guess.

This same thing happened last year I believe.

Funny stuff Up North.

I still get calls for a Mike and Nancy that had my office line before I got it 10 years ago. I tell them they should get a new list every once in awhile.

The site is a .gov site, meaning it is run by the feds.
