Last night I get a phone call from my mother concerned and upset about the latest story on the local news. She began sputtering out something about cell phone numbers had to be reported to the do not call list or telemarketers will be able to contact you through your cell number. Seriously, I know that most of the older generation in Victoria watches the Victoria News. I watch Houston News because of this sort of thing. Do they not double check their resources? Did someone in the office receive one of the emails that was "do this or beware."

For everyone who saw this story and has questions, I will be the one to let you know the facts. NO telemarketers cannot call your cell phone. NO you do not have to report your cell phone numbers to the DNC list.
