I assure everyone that this is not a spam post. I am posting this here because I want to get the word out to as many folks as I can. I am passing information, that's all. I am sure a lot of you use PayPal and may not be aware of their new policy.
If your work phone gets linked in their system, you could be robocalled at work as well as during all "business" hours at home. PayPal and any of their many partners will be allowed to call you. It also includes texting and you will have to pay for the texts just like any other text.
The FCC may pass rules in the middle of this month that would stop this from happening. Maybe.
PayPal says they will honor all requests to be removed from the call lists, but how long will that take and what about all of their myriad partners that they sell you number(s) to while they are "processing" your request?
Unless this is blocked by the FCC, I will be closing my PayPal account before the deadline. If it were not for the fact that it is sometimes the best way to conduct a transaction, I would close it anyway, just because they tried to pull this crap.
I hope I have not offended anyone or broken any sacred forum rules by posting this. Thanks
