Off Topic Mobile Phone Numbers

Post  Guest on Thu Jun 09, 2011 9:13 am

Hi All

Received an Email relating to mobile phone numbers


Mobile phone numbers going public

This is for Australian phone numbers

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.
Don't just delete those calls otherwise you will find that you have been signed up for all sorts of extra

services that
You didn't want or know about. Like special chimes, music etc.

https://www.donotcall.gov.au/


PASS THIS ON TO AS MANY PEOPLE AS YOU CAN


Just thaught this may be of benefit to some

Cheers Ruffles

Just found this on the Do not call website.
Viral email with misinformation on release of mobile numbers to telemarketers and associated mobile charges
The ACMA is aware of an email currently circulating providing misinformation about mobile numbers being made 'public' in the near future. It advises that as a consequence mobile users will be charged for calls made by telemarketing companies to their mobile service.

While the email refers to the Australian Do Not Call Register website, it appears to have originated in the US a number of years ago and has been intermittently circulating since that time. The reference to consumers being 'charged' arises from the different charging regime for mobile calls in the US, where often charges are incurred by mobile phone users for calls they receive. This charging regime does not apply in Australia.

The Australian Do Not Call Register has strong mechanisms in place to protect the privacy of registrants. The numbers on the Do Not Call Register are never provided directly to telemarketers.

Consumers can list their Australian fixed line and mobile numbers on the Do Not Call Register, provided the numbers are used primarily for private or domestic purposes, on www.donotcall.gov.au. Consumers can also register by phoning 1300 792 958.

Under the Do Not Call Register Act 2006, telemarketers can check their calling lists against the Do Not Call Register. If a telemarketer calls a number on the Do Not Call Register, they may be in breach of the Act, and may face penalties.

The ACMA recommends recipients of the email delete it and not forward it on to other email users. A variation of this email was previously circulated during March/April 2009.
Cheers...Swaggy Very Happy

It reminds me of the "no door knockers" stickers you can get for your front door to stop the various door to door sales people?
I put one of these stickers on my front door only to be talking to a couple of girls in the pub a week later who were travelling door knockers for a energy company who said they take great delight in knocking on doors that have these stickers just for the reaction.

knockers that were nice enough to have all the boys in the pub buying them drinks all night Very Happy

I must be carefully sending replies via my mobile phone- when you type "knockers" it auto corrects it to "knickers" !!!

I just registered, but it will be interesting to see if those who have not got my number, now have it.
Example.
Registering your number on the Do Not Call Register will not stop all calls or marketing faxes to your number(s). There are some limited exemptions which enable certain public interest organisations to make telemarketing calls or send marketing faxes. Exempt organisations include charities, religious organisations, educational institutions and political parties.
Time will tell.
