    Re: Keeping Phone Number Private from Tele Marketers

    I hear ya- I keep one cell phone for sweepstaking ONLY. Hubby calls it the "bat phone". :laughing: If I ever get an unwanted/errant call I use the trick my father-in-law taught me years ago:a couple of phrases in his native language-Czech- leaves them wondering :scratch: and they never call again!

    I supposedly am on the "Do Not Call" list. I've had the same phone number for years and am unlisted. I also have caller ID, and occasionally I get a call from a number from out-of-state and they never leave a message. Do any of you that have caller ID and have not answered when you don't recognize the number, and know it's not anybody you know, think you may have missed out on a prize-winning call?? Is it true that there are companies that do not have to notify you by e-mail when that's how you entered?? I never give my number if it's optional, but if it's a really good sweeps and they demand it, I will. What do you think??? Thanks, J.

    FYI - when you enter some sweeps {Sears comes to mind} you effectively void the DNC {Do Not Call} restrictions against them.
    Sweepers by nature are *always* looking for a free lunch, but if you value your time over your $$$, then upgrading to PLUS at less than a dime a day gives you the best bang for your $$$!
