Cellphone do-not-call list email is bogus
Scam alert. Do not call that number! There’s a new wave of emails hitting inboxes and warning you to register your cellphone on the government’s do-not-call list before telemarketers get hold of it and start their incessant calling. The government’s Federal Trade Commission specifically prohibits telemarketers from getting and using your cellphone number. What’s insidious about the bogus emails is that if you call the number given, you’re actually giving your cellphone number to some potentially fraudulent operation that will do who-knows-what with it, according to the Better Business Bureau.
