Cell Phone Numbers Go Public this month - proved false by Snopes.com

By
Real Estate Agent with Re/Max Connection

 You may have seen this before:


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 TO ALL YOUR FRIENDS... It takes about 20 seconds.

Above is the website for the do not call.Snopes.com

 

 

You guessed it!  It got me too.  Thanks to a fellow Active  Rainer Alan May Coldwell Banker, Evanston, Realtor®   and www.snopes.com for setting me straight

WHERE would we be without Snopes? Snopes often lets me set things straight to all those silly forwarded emails about crazy stories and rumors.
