    After reading the link digitalslack provided. I also believe it to be just a hoax. But hey, you never really know, so I just put mine on the do not call list.

    I've been getting TONS of email about this one.

    I always check www.snopes.com before forwarding emails if they may be a hoax.

    I've never had phone spam. Even with my number ending in 0000.

    But then again, I live in Canada. I would say that we don't have telemarketers, but that's not true. When Safeway closed the downtown store, a call centre bought the building and moved in. However, they only answer American calls for some cable internet company.

    That may not be a hoax. My mom has been getting telemarkerter calls on her cell phone even though her number is on the DNC list. Mine is on there also but because I don't have any voice minutes on my plan, I never get the calls.

    Erica,
    If she's on the list and the companies that are calling her are NOT companies that she 'does business with'. Meaning if she donated to the boys and girls club they are allowed to call her. Then she should go here;
    https://www.donotcall.gov/Complain/ComplainCheck.aspx
    and file a complaint

    If the government ever allows telemarkers to call phones that are billed per-minute, I will certainly goto Washington DC and stand outside with a sign. They already overcharge us with taxes... I could add that to the sign too...

    HA, lewis...now i've got you! Canada has only 26 area codes, and no phone numbers that start with a 1. That means, your number is one of 23,400 combinations. You fool! I'll get you yet, and then i'll start pitching the free trip you just won and all you have to do is come to my seminar to recieve it.

    Here we go 604-201-0000, "Lewis, congratulations you........oh, you're not Lewis. Thank you."

    Ok, 604-202-0000, "Lewis, congratulations you just won a............oh, you're not Lewis? Ummm, well congratulations for having an odd phone number. You win anyways"

    I'll get you yet Lewis!!!

    Re: Cell Phone Number Release to Telemarketers

    I know the government and companies as a whole are looking at the calling cell phone subject. Problem has become it can be impossible to tell what number is a cell vs a land line. Not to mention many people want to be called on a land line. I don't work in telemarketing, we call people we do business with, but I know cell phone calls is something that is coming up to the table...

    No it is no hoax trust me. It has been passed by the FCC for 2 years and is 100% legal to call your cell phone now. The only reaon most who have not signed up at donotcall.gov have not been harassed yet is the standard telemarketer service does not work correctly with cellphone numbers yet

    I didn't think it was a hoax. I had a feeling it was real.
