Deleting Your Name From Telemarketers Lists

I read somewhere that when you receive an automated phone call that there are some numbers you can enter on your phone and it mixes up the automation and can delete your number from the list. Has anyone heard of this?

Register at this website to be put on the national "DO NOT CALL LIST". It is free and really works, no more telemarkers can call you. I registered myself, my daughter and my mother's number and the results have been wonderful.

When a telemarketer calls you, you sometimes hear a click before they start talking. As soon as you hear this click, start punching the # sign on your phone. This not only scrambles your number with them, it knocks it off their list so they don't call you again!

This is a free service to those annoying telemarketers or robocalls which are done by computer.

Unfortunately, political and charity calls are not blocked.
