Block Telemarketers from Your Cell Phone

Cell phone numbers are being released to telemarketing companies and money is being made at your expense. Think about how many sales calls you receive in a week. I personally never answer any number that I do not recognize or that does not come up on my caller ID. Sometimes a number slips through the cracks and you are caught with an unwanted solicitation. I hang up and immediately “tag” the unwanted number and put it on my fraud list in my address book.

CELL PHONE NUMBERS ARE COLLECTED, COMPILED AND SOLD!
SOME PEOPLE ARE ACTUALLY BEING CHARGED FOR THESE CALLS.
READ YOUR MONTHLY BILL/S CAREFULLY!

To prevent this, call the following number from your cell phone:
888-382-1222

This is the National DO NOT CALL list. It will only take a minute of your time. However, you must call from the cell phone number you want to have blocked. You cannot call from a different phone number. It takes about 20 seconds.

It’s E-Z.
You type 1 for English.
The prompt will ask you to type in the cell
phone number you are calling from.
DONE!

Many of us change cell phone carriers and/or phone numbers every few years, so it is always good to re-do this procedure. Also these days many people actually use their cell phone as their main telephone number. Now when you purchase something at the store and the clerk at the check-out asks for your telephone number, many of us give our cell number to them. That information is then used by the store and quite possibly sold to telemarketers.

HELP OTHERS BY PASSING THIS INFORMATION
FORWARD TO ALL YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS.

DON’T GET CAUGHT IN THIS VICIOUS CYCLE!
