Telemarketers - Oh My

I decided to check my Google Voice number that I long disconnected from my cell phone, and the number of telemarketers that call it is just amazing.  This is why it is important to keep your cell phone numbers hidden from everything and everyone.  Google Voice is free and an excellent service that acts as a firewall between you and telemarketers.  Instead of providing your real phone number, all you do is provide your Google Voice Number.  This is a great alternative for people who enter sweepstakes/

Occasionally, companies notify the winners by a phone call.  This makes it important to receive phone calls, but also weed out the telemarketer ones. Once you identify a telemarketer number it is pretty easy to block that number in Google Voice.

Long story short, though, here is the list of all the telemarketers that called my Google Voice number since I started using it a few months ago:

This would be so annoying getting all this stuff on my cell-phone, but thankfully I use Google Voice.  All my telemarketers get to hear is a voice mail recording of Mental Health Hot Line
