Granby Police Advise Citizens Their Cell Phone Numbers are Going Public

Posted by Sgt O on 28 Jan 2011 | Tagged as: general



The Granby Police Department would like to advise citizens that cell phone numbers are going public this month and this means they can be released to telemarketers unless you register with the National Do Not Call Registry. The registration can be done two different ways and is very simple to do. You can call the following number 1-888-382-1222 and follow the prompts. In order to register a cell phone you must be calling from that cell phone. Or you can go to www.donotcall.gov and click on the link that says “register a phone number” enter the number or numbers (up to 3) and a valid e-mail address. As soon as you click the register button an e-mail will be sent to you. Open the e-mail and click on the link attached, this will finalize the registration. This registry has been available since 2008 for home phones and if you haven’t registered that phone, you can do so as well. For more information on the National Do Not Call Registry you can visit their website www.donotcall.gov .
