    REMEMBER: Cell Phone Numbers Go Public this month.
    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 .. It takes about 20 seconds.

    IT’S NOT TRUE! Yet, I see this email making the rounds in different formats all the time. This time around they added a nice graphic. It’s still not legit!

    It’s illegal for an automatic telephone dialing system or prerecorded voice message to call a mobile number where you’ll be charged for the call unless it’s an emergency or you gave express prior consent.

    This email appears to have stemmed from discussion about a 411 directory. However, the Federal Communications Commission says it would still be illegal to call a cell phone for telemarketing purposes even if the wireless 411 directory took effect.

    The directory would be opt-in only, and the list of numbers would not be made available to telemarketers. It’s been talked about for a few years, and is still not a reality so you have nothing to worry about for now.

    You can still register your cell phone number. It won’t do any harm. Click here to register or call 1-888-382-1222.

    So maybe it's still early, or I haven't had enough coffee yet but I'm at a loss here. So what are we saying? It's a scam or not? Either way, I have always registered ALL my phones on the National Do Not Call Registry. Never had a problem before.
