Social media websites and inboxes are flooded these days with a message that claims mobile phone numbers will be released to telemarketing companies and the incoming call individuals receive from them will be charged. The FTC even issued a few notifications to make sure people know about the scam, stating that it’s illegal for telemarketers to call individuals on their cell phones, but as an extra precaution, anyone can submit their numbers to the National Do-Not-Call Registry. REMINDER all mobile phone numbers are being released to telemarketing companies and you will start to receive sale calls. However the assertion that your phone numbers are about to be released any moment to telemarketers has actually been floating across the Internet as far back as 2004, and they were not accurate even back then.
In fact the FTC released information on its website dispelling the messages and providing useful and factual advice about telemarketing companies, the DNC and your cellphone, which you can read here. All cell phone numbers are being released to telemarketing companies this month and you will start to receive sales calls. What is irritating is I called this number months ago and they have started calling more than ever.
This email appears to have stemmed from discussion about a 411 directory.  However, the Federal Communications Commission says it would still be illegal to call a cell phone for telemarketing purposes even if the wireless 411 directory took effect.
The directory would be opt-in only, and the list of numbers would not be made available to telemarketers. There is another email that claims you need to update your number with the Do not Call Registry because it expires. If you have or had a business relationship with a company within the last 18 months, they can call you without being considered a telemarketer. If you made an inquiry or submitted an application to a company, they can call you for three months.

New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal will kick-start his Punjab campaign by addressing a mega rally in Muktsar next month, as the party gears up for polls in the state scheduled to be held in 2017. The Delhi Chief Minister is also expected to spend a considerable time in Punjab from next year, party sources said.
It seems you can get most of these things within a short walking distance of a hotel: grocery, coffehouse internet, cell or payphone, etc.

Regarding #1, some hotels now use mini-bars that monitor (by weight) when an item is removed and will automatically send the mini-bar charges to the hotel’s computer. OutlineCirculating email warns that mobile phone numbers in Australia are "going public" next month and claims that consumers will be charged for calls made to them by telemarketing companies. False - Note however that while the claims in the email about the release of mobile phone numbers are untrue, the "Do Not Call" register itself is real and perfectly legitimate. According to this widely circulated email warning, mobile phone numbers in Australia are about to be released to telemarketing companies. The ACMA is aware of an email currently circulating providing misinformation about mobile numbers being made 'public' in the near future. While the email refers to the Australian Do Not Call Register website, it appears to have originated in North America a number of years ago and has been intermittently circulating since that time. In fact, as the following example illustrates, the email is simply a rehashed version of a long running email hoax that targets US cell phone users. While the claims about the imminent release of mobile phone numbers are untrue, Australian consumers can register their telephone numbers on the Do Not Call Register. The Do Not Call Register has opened and individuals can register their home phone and mobile numbers. For information about registering phone numbers in Australia, refer to the Do Not Call Register website. It is also claimed you will be charged for these calls unless you call the DNC (Do Not Call Registry) and block your number.
It is true that registering with the respective DNC list in your country may provide some protection from cold-calling (it is still unlikely to protect from scam calls who do not use such registry lists) sharing the information in the rumour is certainly not advised. People are bombarded with so many conflicting messages it is hard to know what is true.The latest email scam doing the rounds is a message claiming mobile phone numbers will be released to telemarketers next month and users will be charged for the incoming calls. REMINDER: all mobile phone numbers are being released to telemarketing companies and you will start to receive sale calls.
If you thought those prices are a rip-off, consider the amounts hotels ask for the use of their phone lines. The reference to consumers being 'charged' arises from the different charging regime for mobile calls in the USA, where often charges are incurred by mobile phone users for calls they receive.

If a telemarketer calls a number on the Do Not Call Register, they may be in breach of the Act, and may face penalties. In 2007, The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) in the US published information debunking the warnings as hoaxes. Australian consumers who are bothered by telemarketing calls certainly should consider registering their numbers on the Do Not Call Register.
All cell phone numbers are being released to telemarketing companies and you will start receive sales calls.
The rates are anywhere between 150% – 400% higher than if you were to use a public or mobile phone.
YOU WILL BE CHARGED FOR THESE CALLS To prevent this, call the following number from your cell phone: 888-382-1222. I suggest picking a user friendly theme and playing around with it before you make it public. It doesna€™t matter if youa€™re using a calling card or phoning a restaurant to make reservations: everything apart from an internal call is charged by their standards. YOU WILL BE CHARGED FOR THESE CALLS To prevent this, call the following number from your cell phone: 888-382-1222 . The Federal Court has fined a Queensland travel company $120,000 for making more than 12,000 unsolicited calls to numbers listed on the register.
Some hotels are reported to charge even for the toll-free number you call to use your phone card. However, by vaguely referring to "next month", no deadline is specified and the message is therefore likely to continue circulating for months or even years to come. Anyone can list their home, mobile phone and fax numbers either through ACMA's website or by phoning or mailing the government organisation. Charities, research companies, political parties and educational institutions are exempt from the calling ban.''The good part is the register has been going for four years and 90 per cent of people using it say they have had success with a reduction in the number of people calling,'' Ms Rossi said.
