Even when you use your phone number or key fobs for your local stores.
I had found out about a couple of months ago that my information can be sold without my contest.

I am on the DO NOT CALL LIST. But they still call/harass for all fundraising and the election crap. (change phone number)
I had ask how they had find my phone number (real one)/ They had said CVS/Walgreens.I do not know if true or not . But I stop using the cards and giving out my email. (junk- email)

I am sorry for the rant. But I feel that I must warn everyone to be careful.

Here are my steps to be safe.

1. use an junk email if you don't already.
2. use an fake phone number (if you don't already.
3. use an different zip code or tell them you are form out of town.
4. use a different name or shorten name or pet's name--

5. RENEW the DO NOT CALL LIST. It expires every three years--

6. head over to white pages, yellow pages, and www.Spokeo.com† delete your personal information off.

7. GET LIFELOCK> IT WORKS. IT is worth it.
Once again I am sorry for being an negative nancy . I do not want anybody else go through what I had been going through.....

~~Registrations on the National Do Not Call Registry DO NOT EXPIRE.
If you have previously registered your number, there is no need to register again.

Is it true that the Do Not Call Registry particularly exempts both charitable and political organizations from NOT CALLING YOU (even if you're on the list)?

If true "theunderdog09" is SOL... (both would still call)

Yeah, you got it correct, they are exempt. Also exempt is any business that you have had any dealings with in the past, you have to contact the business itself to request they not contact you anymore.

Free Sample GPN Coffee - Hazelnut or Columbia Varieties Recent website, no valid business phone #, one provided goes to registrant in a different city. Address goes to empty office suite, looks like a fake website strictly set up for a phishing scam. One user reported receiving a "Malicious Content" warning while accessing the site.

Anything, ANYTHING, from myhealthyinfo.com.

What does MyHealthyInfo have in common with the Fake Freebie Sticky favorites such as Quality Health and Lifescript Advantage? They all offer freebies that never come, but give you lots of spam, junk mail, what have you. A Google search reveals a slew of questionable freebies from this bogus website, https://www.google.com/search?q=site%3Amyhealthyinfo.com+myhealthyinfo.com I seriously doubt that all of this are legit, I suspect none of them are. Products I never heard of - when you search for them, the only source for them is this scammy website.

If that isn't enough to persuade anybody from taking a risk on any of the multitude of freebies in the Google search link, then this legal info*** from their T&C should make you run far, far away, as you are agreeing to allow them to: a) spam you, b) send junk mail, c) make telemarketer calls to your phone# - even if you are on any lists (Direct Marketing Association junk removal, Do Not Call). You have effectively given permission to them and anybody they sell your info to, to bypass the removal lists. No legitimate company would, nor has, ever required you to give up your rights to privacy and protection from unwanted junk mail and telemarketing calls.

I found a Facebook id and they are selling product with $0.01.

All good and qualitative skin care products .

They will lead you to an official website and you can make order safely .

I guess they are new online store which is putting their advertisement to all of the online market with very good price .

Personally recommended !

Verified Coffee

This fake site is a clone (duplicate) of a legitimate businessís site Echo Espresso (real site) vs Verified Coffee (cloned/fake site) The wording is exactly the same too.
I got a popup after submitting the request form (using my fake alt I store on my Blur account ) Clicking the pop-up takes you to a typical MLM scam offer. Scammers make money selling your NAZ and email addy to spam/junk mail lists. No specific product info, no purchasing info, no where to buy info - dead end. They are using a generic stock photo that they Photoshop a fake logo on. A search of the address shows that it belongs to a Papa John's Pizza franchise (no surprise there, they hope you don't Google), phone # is fake too.

Several months ago I received a full large bottle of some new Elizabeth Arden cologne and had no idea what it was from. I googled it and found that I had placed my name in something where only 150 bottles of this cologne were given out. What are the odds of that happening?
