Do not call me on my mobile. Thank you!

More readers have pointed out this is only applicable to landlines.  Thanks!

A reader just submitted something many of you may not know and will be happy you did.  In 30 days after you register no telemarketer can call you on your cell phone.  There’s going to be some overlap but this will end it:
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.
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.

Update: 12:30 – Another reader notes this may be an urban myth but the original reader just sent this government website before we could even ask.  Earlier before these last emails came, we tried the number and it does seem legit.  And we’ve seen more than one gov site mentioning it as well.  Regardless, you guys are really fast on the draw.  We’re impressed!
