UNTRACEABLE PHONE CALLS ANNOUNCES SERVICES

 UNTRACEABLE PHONE CALLS ANNOUNCES SERVICES
 SHARON, Mass., Feb. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- "Constitutional privacy,


phone companies, newspapers, Congress and telemarketers are at the heart of my new business, Untraceable Phone Calls," states Richard Koch.
 Koch, former president of American CitiNet, has taken over the operation of the 18-month-old 900-STOPPER traceless calling service. The business move was finalized Feb. 1, 1992, between Koch's company Untraceable Phone Calls, and Private Lines, Inc. of California. Will Dwyer II and Marvin Rudnick, founders of Private Lines are pleased with the takeover, because "Koch's success record as a national telecommunications marketer and innovator is precisely what phone privacy advocates need in order to blunt electronic 'Big Brotherism.'" Under the arrangement, Koch will manage the national marketing as well as the day-to-day operations of 900-STOPPER and 900-RUN-WELL. 900-STOPPER is a $2.00 a minute service that provides untraceable calls utilizing a second dial tone from which callers can dial anywhere in the United States, Canada or the Caribbean. 900-RUN-WELL extends the same service internationally for $5.00 a minute.
 "This is not a sleazy 900 service. It's quite the opposite. People ask me if this is legal. 'Legal!' I say. Privacy is the most precious, basic American freedom we have. People want to make sensitive calls to their attorney, accountant, doctor, hotlines, clients and friends and don't want comprehensive phone records of every call they make or receive. In addition to voice, 900-STOPPER can be used for data and fax and the only phone record associated with the caller is the call to 900-STOPPER, never the second call!"
 Koch says, "I am selling dial tone and privacy. I have taken over operation of these services in order to satisfy what the mainstream of what America wants. Privacy is a major concern of the American people. When any company can legally find out every person in an area code that called a specific reporter or realizing that every call you make or receive can end up in a marketing database, it's time for concern. Many thousands of people have used 900-STOPPER, people even call 900-STOPPER and pay $2.00 a minute to call free 800 numbers! The phone company marketers are having a field day compiling personal information on phone users. The American Newspaper Publishers Association recently said, 'The phone companies will know more about you than the IRS.' Now that's a scary thought!"
 Along with the exclusive rights to 900-STOPPER and 900-RUN-WELL, Koch has secured the rights to 800-STOPPER, a toll-free number that provides information on Untraceable Phone Calls and its services and will in the near future provide nontraceable calls from locations where 900 access is prohibited, such as hotels, airports, certain offices and cellular phones.
 The 900-STOPPER service also protects against the disclosure of unlisted numbers by Caller ID devices because it blocks the signalling that normally identifies calling party numbers. Twenty-six states approve caller IDs and says Koch, "This is a way to protect people's rights to privacy."
 Untraceable Phone Calls is owned by RNK, Inc., a Massachusetts corporation headed by Richard Koch. Private Lines, Inc, is a California corporation headquartered in Beverly Hills. Private Lines is now free to focus on other privacy issues such as a national campaign called "Don't Call Me" to block telemarketer calls (usually at supper time) to residential phone customers.
