Subject: FW: 90# on the telephone
I personally checked this out with snopes.com <http://snopes.com
> and found it to be true. Also, #09 will do the same thing described below.
Be sure to pass this on to all your friends.
[90# on the telephone]
PASS ON TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW
I received a telephone call last evening from an
individual identifying himself as an AT&T Service
technician who was conducting a test on telephone
lines. He stated that to complete the test I should
touch nine(9), zero(0), the pound sign (#), and then
Luckily, I was suspicious and refused.
Upon contacting the telephone company, I was informed
that by pushing 90#, you give the requesting
individual full access to your telephone line, which
enables them to place long distance calls billed to
your home phone number.
I was further informed that this scam has been
originating from many local jails/prisons. I have also
verified this information with UCB Telecom,Pacific
Bell, MCI, Bell Atlantic and GTE. Please beware.
DO NOT press 90# for ANYONE.
The GTE Security Department requested that I share
this information with EVERYONE I KNOW.
PLEASE pass this on to everyone YOU know.
If you have mailing lists and/or newsletters from
organizations you are connected with, I encourage you
to pass on this information to them.
After checking with Verizon they said it was true, so
do not dial (9),zero(0), the pound sign # and hang up
Remember...DO NOT DIAL 90#(pound key)!!!!
.....& Remember forewarned is forearmed!!!
