WOW! Thanks you for sharing that Robert. I had heard about it before but wasn't sure it was true. I typed in my Phone # and 3 pages of listings w/ my phone # showed up! I do have children and one of them being 17 God only knows who and how many times he has given out the # even though he knows he is not supposed to!!
