Caller ID Manager and FAX FIREWALL Allows Only 'Invited' Callers to

Telemarketing companies and exempted groups may have found loopholes
in the National "Do Not Call" List, but telecom automation provider
Privacy Corps thwarts them again with their latest introductions, the
Caller ID Manager and FAX FIREWALL.

Both compact devices, designed for customers who subscribe to Caller
ID, the Caller ID Manager and FAX FIREWALL allows only 'Invited'
callers to ring the phone or fax. All other callers are handled as the
consumer chooses.

Although the devices are customizable, their use is simple. Callers on
the consumer's 'Invited' list ring through without interference, while
anonymous or unfamiliar callers are either ignored or allowed to leave
a message, without ringing the phone. Callers on the consumer's
'Excluded' list cannot ring the phone or leave a message, including
cell phone, out-of-state, and international callers.

"We call it 'Caller ID with an Attitude!'," says Chase. "Now you can
choose who can ring your phone or fax, and when, without the limits
and extra monthly charges from your telephone service provider. Using
the unit's Caller ID screen, it only takes a push of a button to add
callers to the 175 entry 'Included' or 'Excluded' list. And, using the
'Wildcard' feature, the consumer can 'Invite' or 'Exclude' entire area
codes, prefixes or number sets. Lists are so flexible that you can
'Invite' everyone and 'Exclude' some, or 'Exclude' everyone and
'Invite' some. "With these devices, intrusive calls and junk faxes
are a thing of the past. Even Caller ID Spoofing is totally
ineffective with this Caller ID technology."

A snap to install, the Caller ID Manager completely eliminates
telemarketing calls, predictive dialers, misdialed numbers, hang-up
calls, junk faxes, pollsters, political organizations, ex's,
creditors, harassment, and every other type of unwanted call. It can
also be used as a pre-screening device for large telephone systems
designed for business and institutional use, or as a qualifier for
modems and remote telephone devices.

Additional benefits include 'Do Not Disturb' modes. This feature
prevents callers from ringing the phone during chosen hours, such as,
bedtime, study or movie time, either on a one-time or daily basis.

"The Caller ID Manager is particularly useful for people who keep
unusual hours, such as those working the graveyard or swing shifts,"
says Chase. "During 'Do Not Disturb' hours, 'Invited' callers can
leave a message, but the phone will not ring, ensuring total privacy."
A secret emergency code is provided in case of emergencies.

Based on the same platform, the FAX FIREWALL completely eliminates
junk faxes, also by the use of an 'Invited' list, and ignores all
others without answering the call.

The Caller ID Manager and FAX FIREWALL are the latest additions to the
Privacy Corps product line, designed to help residential consumers and
business owners better manage their telephone communications and
reduce monthly telephone charges. Both of these products are available
at the website <> or by calling (888) 633-5777.
