After my death our beloved Church abroad will break three ways ... first the Greeks will leave us as they were never a part of us ... then those who live for this world and its glory will go to Moscow ... what will remain will be those souls faithful to Christ and His Church. ~St. Philaret of NY


Beware of "opting out"

Press ‘2’ for spam

  A Herald and News reader was recently called with an offer to save 25 percent on his next trip to Cancun. Having never been to the Mexican destination, the reader was immediately suspicious.  When the message offered the reader a chance to opt out of future messages by pressing “2,” he did exactly that.  But that was his mistake. Typically, nefarious telemarketers will use this technique to ensure they have a potential victim.  Jeff Manning with the Oregon Attorney General’s Office advises receivers of this call to not engage. Just hang up.

It's the same warning I read at http://www.callercenter.com. Apparently, most of those robocalls giving you an option to press a number to stop getting calls, they're merely a ruse for these telemarketers to know if a phone number is active and in use.
