    I often get messages like that too and I’ve always just assumed it was shady selling from websites and stuff that I’ve signed up for. Its really disheartening to hear that even if you don’t personally give your number out that it may still be sold anyway!

    It is frustrating to say the least to receive these calls at all hours of the day and night and even more so to suspect that your number has been sold to varous companies. Years ago, I registered our telephone numbers, both cell phone and home phone lines with the National Do Not Call list. I do get some text messages occasionally from advertising companies, but knock on wood, I haven’t received any phone calls yet. Have you tried calling one of the numbers and ask them to take your name off their list?

    It is ridiculous that a person has to fear any “unknown”phone number showing up on their phones! I for one, cannot even take a nap in the day, no matter what time it is, these people (who I really want to give a nasty name to) have NO respect towards anyone & when they have the opportunity to speak to someone who does answer the unknown callers, they push & push you to listen to all the babbling about how you are the winner or the one person chose out of thousands & they want to trick you into thinking it’s all “The Real Deal”, when in fact, at the end of the day, it’s just a job, with a written skit they read from & a telephone they use as a weapon. So, what do we do about it???

    I received that kind of annoying message too when I am still using GLOBE PLAN. Yes, you’re right it is very irritating. Hope GLOBE TELECOM can read this post of yours so that they would know what is going on with their line.

    To be honest, I’m a real estate agent from Robinsons land. I used to buy numbers 3 years ago from a telephone company at puro Globe lang talaga nabibili. I’m buying numbers for me to advertise the condos that I’m selling. Funny thing lang, kasi kahit ako nakakareceive ng such advertisements. Maigi nga ireklamo na sa globe.

    yes its true its kind of irritating some spam messages would bother especially when you are waiting for some important messages. NTC should look into this cause it invades our privacy!
