This was sent to me today from Grasshopper, tought it may be of interest to you all thumbs-up


REMEMBER: Mobile Phone Numbers Go Public next month.

REMINDER all mobile phone numbers are being released to telemarketing companies and you will start to receive sale calls.


YOU WILL BE CHARGED FOR THESE CALLS !!!!!

Below is a link where you can enter your phone numbers online to put an end to telemarketing calls

The do not call register is real but the rest is a beat up.

Re the charities requesting donations...I was told by one of them you have ask each individual charity to remove you from their call list. I have asked a couple of them and I always ask for the caller's name, I tell then I make notions of all such calls. It seems to have worked.
We donate to our selected charities...we can't give to every single one.
