Can this be true or what?

Got this from a work colleague, it's obviously a "forward this to the world and his gerbil", but is it true?

Maybe you have heard about this but early next week all UK mobiles will be on a directory which will mean that anyone will be able to access the numbers. It is easy to unsubscribe but it must be done before the beginning of next week to make sure that you are ex directory. We have all unsubscribed and you may want to suggest it to all your friends and family who have UK mobiles or they could be swamped by unsolicited messages and calls. Removal is recommended by the BBC - see link below.

Just done this myself. Double checked it wasn't a scam and it is actually on the bbc website recommending to do this.


The Directory of Mobile Phone numbers goes live next week.
All numbers including those belonging to children will be open to cold calling and the general abuse that less scrupulous telesales people subject us too.

To remove your number go here. (you need your mobile phone with you to do this, they text you a code)

http://www.118800.co.uk/removeme/remove-me.html

When on the site, click "Home" then "Ex-directory" this will remove you from the directory.

thanks i'll check back later and circulate to family/friends

eta: another way to unsubscribe

To unsubscribe, you can either click on the ex directory button on the their web homepage, or you can text the letter 'E' to 118800 from the mobile phone you want to be made ex-directory. 118800 will send you an SMS message confirming you've been taken off

At 118 800, we think you've been misinformed...
We never give out your mobile phone number
We never sell your mobile phone number to anyone - including sales organisations
We have no children in our directory
It is difficult to imagine how it could be used for cold calling, £1 per number is a little expensive. These numbers are gathered from the same lists that the cold callers do use, so it is nothing new. If someone starts nuisance calling you, then you just have to make yourself ex-directory and it stops. The stalker never gets your number, so once 118800 stops working the calls stop. They say there are no children in the database; I'm sure there's the odd mistake, but the lists they have harvested the numbers from probably try to exclude children too because it's a bad idea and a waste of money to try to sell a child double glazing.
