Have you received this email?
“Thought this was good info from the Gov’t of Canada ….if you have a cell phone.
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, go to the following web-site for Canadian Telephone Numbers:
http://www.lnnte-dncl.gc.ca/ and then click on English & then on “check my registration.”
Then click on “extend my registration”.
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.
HELP OTHERS BY PASSING THIS ON.
It takes about 20 seconds. “
While this email states that you will be charged for the phone calls, it’s more or less a scare tactic by someone fed up with tele-marketers.
The website www.lnnte-dncl.gc.ca is a legitimate website to list your phone number to help prevent telemarketers. You can verify this by visiting the CRTC’s website @ www.crtc.gc.ca/eng/info_sht/g9.htm
