The other day I guess I was bored and was surfing the web, looking for info on diabetic groups, etc. I know I had to sign up for some sights in order to get info on them (my first mistake). Well, last night I got a call from someone who asked if I was the person in the household who had diabetes. I got huffy and said that was personal and nobody's business but my own. He said he was trying to help me, I said no thanks. He said I can help you don't hang up. I'm afraid I screamed at him I don't want your help, and slammed the phone down. After I calmed down I realised that he was probably calling from one of the sites I had visited. But I never gave anyone my phone # or even my address, other than I live in IL. I don't think I gave them my real name either, although my phone is listed under another name so that wouldn't have mattered. I am on the do not call list, but I guess they felt it was nullified by my going to these sights. I know I am as technically knowledgable as an earthworm, but how did they get my phone #? I was angry, but also a little scared. I live alone and do not want any stranger to know my address or phone #. Am I the only one perturbed about this?
