REMINDER ....11 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 .
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 are wanting to have blocked .
You cannot call from a different phone number.
HELP OTHERS BY PASSING THIS ON TO ALL YOUR FRIENDS OR GO TO: http://www.donotcall.gov


You can also add your home phone number to this list, you can register up to 3 phone numbers at a time. Don't forget to follow the instructions : answer the links in the emails sent to you to complete the registration.

I have done this with my house and cell phone....take a few minutes to save yourself some aggrevation.- P99guy

I hope it works. I've gotten more telemarketing calls since I registered with the Do Not Call Listing.

If you tell them you're on the list I bet they don't call back. :)

I have only ever gotten 1 telemarketing call on my cell phone, but I registered it anyway, I don't want all my minutes used up my telemarketers.

Trust me - the Do Not Call list works.

My investigators prepare cases for prosecution for telemarketers who violate our state No Call law, and since the law went into effect we've gotten convictions or stipulated settlements for over fifty violators based on citizen complaints.

Definitely register on the federal site, but if you have an equivalent state No Call list, register on that one as well. The states are more likely to go after violators whereas the feds will only jump the biggest operators due to manpower constraints.

In Wisconsin you can register at https://nocall.wisconsin.gov or by calling 1-866-9NO-CALL (1-866-966-2255).

Someone took a crank email seriously and is passing bum info. :)

It's an old internet urban legend that isn't true. It's been circulated at least 4 times over 4 years that I can remember.

Ok, well its not that bad then..but I have used the no call lists before and it makes a difference to be on one. And I do get the occasional sales call on my cell phone ..so no harm /no fowl on signing up.

A gonad punt will only work if the telemarketer isn't a user of 'The Fist.'

I think 'The Fist' is also know as self-flagellation...

Anyone have a Monte Pyton refrence?
