118800 Mobile telephone directory service crashes after too many calls from users

This directory has been launched by a company who eventually paid millions to get that directory data from mobile operators. The service is not free and it charges £1 per search but eventually it operates like old-style telephone directories where you just give name or address and you are presented with the matching numbers. However, this is a controversial service as telemarketing is already a problem for UK population. Most of the telemarketers use mind control techniques and tell lies to sell their products and that is just because of their commission in sales. Now with the launch of this new mobile search directory, it has been clear the mobile phone companies do sell their customer data to outsiders which then use that data to trick customers. Please remember the data shared with third parties can only not be just your phone number and your name, that can be your address and even your email address.

My advise will be to visit 118800.co.uk now and see if it is available do request to remove your phone number immediately. Otherwise you will be bombarded by the telemarketers as soon as tomorrow.
