Question; Can we put our phone numbers on a “do not call” list? If so, how?

Jill: Thank you for that link. Can you ask our guest to confirm that? Is that the ONLY such list?

Listen to the background noise -- normal offices do not have a lot of people talking in the background -- boiler rooms, people phone banking for pay.

Natalie. I thought that in order to get a license that workers com was a requirement. Did I misunderstand you saying that we needed to check a contractor for workers com?

A lot of the people who give away free "cell phones" pressure our seniors in building and probably so many other places... They put the cell phone in their hands and pressure them to accept the "free gift." People have given their information and end up finding out that their CA Lifeline will be removed from their landlines. Seems like they could be legit but don't really know who is and is not...

It's popping up on my screen too but I have Norton antivirus software already loaded on my computer. Do you? That's why it would be popping up.
Jill Jones
02:03:38
The message will come and go. Have you purchased Norton software?

Your friend's email account has been hacked. They need to immediately change their password on their email account.

Following up on Joyce Barnes comment - there are scams on LinkedIn too. I have a couple of experiences with individuals trying to scam me on that platform.
