JUST A REMINDER... 9 days from today, August20, cell phone
numbers are being released to telemarketing companies
and you will start to receive sale calls. YOU WILL BE
CHARGED FOR THESE CALLS...
To prevent this, call the following number from your
cell phone: 888/382-1222. 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.
PASS THIS ON TO ALL YOUR FRIENDS. You need to call from the # you want to register Or go online at http://www.donotcall.govMy doctor gave me six months to live, but when I couldn't pay the bill he gave me six months more.

Not True. This msg is from Mike Holt.
Message from Mike: It has come to my attention that the newsletter we sent out yesterday about cell phones and the National Do Not Call Registry is untrue. I apologize for sending out this information, but at least you all know for sure now that I am human. The following is an official advisory from the Federal Trade Commission regarding these e-mails:
If you have received an e-mail telling you that your cell phone is about to be assaulted by telemarketing calls as a result of a new cell phone number database, rest assured that this is not the case. Telemarketing to cell phone numbers has always been illegal in most cases and will continue to be so. In response to recent e-mail campaigns urging consumers to place their cell phone numbers on the National Do Not Call Registry, the Federal Trade Commission and Federal Communications Commission issue this advisory to give consumers the facts.
