I just got a bunch of email from various people warning me that my cell phone number (no, you can’t have it) is going to be sold to telemarketers next month, and I need to call a certain phone number right away to get it blocked. I must have a cynical mind, because my first thought was that if I were a telemarketer who wanted to fish up a bunch of ripe cell phone numbers, I’d send out bulk email telling people who hated telemarketers to call me on their cell phone.
I was right. I checked Snopes, and there is no proposed sell-off of cell numbers, and calling the number given won’t help you in the slightest.
This has been a public service announcement. If you receive that email, do not call, just hit delete.
