Telephone and Similar Listings

Received too many telemarketing calls and unsolicited e-mail messages? Sometimes you can prevent these calls by unlisting yourself. You probably know that you can get an unlisted telephone number. Some local telephone service providers charge an extra fee for this service. Consider changing your number and having the new one be not listed in public directories.

Remember that you need to tell your friends and colleagues your new number. If you still use printed checks (rather than using online banking, PayPal (www.paypal.com), debit or smart card transactions, and so on), you might consider not reprinting your checks with your new number on them. Of course, if you don't tell the people with whom you do business how to get hold of you, they may not be able to reach you with information you want to know.
