Your Cell Phone Number Was Released to Telemarketers Today

Beginning today, all cell phone numbers will be released to telemarketers. If you’re like me and you don’t answer your phone unless you recognize the number, it won’t affect you.

But to those of you who jump to answer every call – get ready to be besieged by telemarketers hawking everything under the sun!

The Federal Trade Commission has set up a National Do Not Call Registry where you can add your cell number to a Do Not Call list. You must call from the cell phone that you are registering. The number is 1-888 382-1222 or visit Donotcall.gov.

    Not mine.

    My cellphone number has been on the DO NOT ****ING CALL ME List!!!

  • BayArea

    Took care of that. Thanks for the heads up!

  • Anna

    I’ve already done mine, hubby’s and kids a long time ago. The sad thing is the DNC list are only good for 3 years and you have you have to re do them.

  • browni007

    Oh hell F*ing no – that’s why I’ve been on the list!
    Thanks Anna – maybe I need to re do it.

    I put my number on that list like 2 years ago but recently
    I have been receiving all kinds of crazy calls people
    telling me I have won things and my warranty on my car is about to expire. I just re-registered my number I sincerely hopes it
    works this time. A live person has not been on the phone its all pre recorded messages.

    The hoax is your cell numbers are not being released, tho there is a donotcall list for your home phones. A better explanation:
