Just got this from a friend. Anybody confirm or is it a hoax?

[blue]edit: Personal Information goes public Starting July 1st, 2003,
the four major credit bureaus in the US (Equifax, etc.) will be allowed
to release credit info, mailing addresses, phone numbers, etc., to
ANYONE who requests it. If you do not want to be included in this
release of your personal information, you can call 1-888-567-8688.
Once the message starts you will want option #2 (even though option #1
refers to this email, push
#2 and then option #3.

Be sure to listen closely, the first option is only for a two-year
period. Make sure you wait until they prompt for the third option,
which opts you out FOREVER. You should receive their paperwork in the
mail confirming the "opting out" in less than one week after making the
call.[/blue]
