ALL Cell Phone Numbers Go Public this month
REMINDER: “All cell phone numbers are being released to telemarketing companies – you will start to receive sales calls…… YOU WILL ALSO BE CHARGED FOR THESE CALLS!”
Though this Hoax is going out all over the Internet as it often does from time to time, I just wanted to point out a couple things. You may receive an email or a notice from a friend about this, and though the National Do NOT CALL organization is legit, the warning here IS NOT. See Snopes
Some of you may want these calls and yet others may not. If you decide to do this, your clients and prospects might be deciding to do it as well, if they haven’t already. Is telemarketing gone out the window with WEB 1.0? Do you really want your cell phone, office phone, or home phone blocked from telemarketers? It’s your decision and there is no right or wrong answer here, just an opportunity to take a moment and reflect, give it some consideration, make a decision, then take your action…or not.
An interesting fact I just found is that there are literally millions in American adding their phone numbers to this list, yet there’s a significantly higher number of folks joining Social Networks and places like FaceBook, Twitter, LinkedIn etc. The world’s a changing for sure. It’s exciting to be part of this time and ERA, and it’s interesting to see the changes that are taking place in these times.
What Lists and organizations Will Be Next?
DO NOT MAIL ME – DO NOT EMAIL ME – DO NOT TEXT ME – DO NOT FRIEND ME – DO NOT FOLLOW ME – DO NOT ADD ME – DO NOT SUBSCRIBE TO ME – DO NOT TALK TO ME – DO NOT LOOK AT ME – DO NOT…YIKES!
To reach the National DO NOT CALL organization, (should that be your choice) here is the number: 888-382-1222 It only takes about 20 seconds, but before you do, I’d love to know your thoughts and feelings about this? Why or Why Not? I confess, I added my numbers, but did I just do it to conform to a trend of society or do I really hate getting calls from telemarketers? How about you?
