JUST A REMINDER....18 days from today, all cell phone numbers are being
released to telemarketing companies and you will start to receive sale calls.
YOU WILL BE CHARGED FOR THESE CALLS.... To prevent this, call the following
number from your cell phone: 888-382-1222 or visit www.donotcall.gov/
It will only take a minute of your time.

It blocks your number for five (5) years.

Hmmm... Well, I found this little blurb while browsing that site, BlacknGold Bleeder...


10. Can I register my cell phone on the National Do Not Call Registry?

Yes, you may place your personal cell phone number on the National Do Not Call Registry. The registry has accepted cell phone numbers since it opened for registrations in June 2003. There is no deadline to register a home or cell phone number on the Registry.

You may have received an email telling you that your cell phone is about to be assaulted by telemarketing calls as a result of a new cell phone number database; however, that is not the case. FCC regulations prohibit telemarketers from using automated dialers to call cell phone numbers. Automated dialers are standard in the industry, so most telemarketers don?t call consumers on their cell phones without their consent.

So, whatcha think? :hunch:

Koopa, there's a telemarketing company that leases office space in the same office complex in which I work, and most of the telemarketers who are employed there are wearing ankle bracelets and are on parole...(lol). Those characters are so scary that, during the winter months when it gets dark early and I work late, I'm always sure to have a guy escort me to my car. Once when I was leaving work, there were two girls walking ahead of me, and I heard one tell the other that she had a date for that upcoming Saturday night with a new guy who had just started working w/her for the telemarketing company, but that he was on parole so they were limited as to where they could go (no nightclubs, etc.) on their date. :sofunny:

Are you one of those telemarketers? :grin:

lol, naw, when i was a telemarketer, i was a high school kid enjoying the basically free 7 dollars an hour plus commission. but there was a lot of old ppl, and a bunch of ppl that came out of prison. basically nothing but mexicans. that shit was fun, i miss prank calling old ppl on a slow saturday telling them to lock all their doors cause a killer was on the lose and was last seen around your neighbor hood lol. and i miss my lying ways to get a sale. those were the days
