Never Dial 90# !

I received this email yesterday and thought it was important enough to post on
the blog so as many people see it as should…..

DON’T DIAL 90# for anyone!

I dialed ‘0’ and asked the operator who confirmed that this was correct so please pass it on . . . (l also checked out Snopes.com ..this is true, and also applies to cell phones!)

I received a telephone call last evening from an individual identifying himself as an AT&T Service Technician (could also be Telus) who was conducting a test on the telephone lines. He stated that to complete the test I should touch nine(9), zero(0), the pound sign (#), and then hang up. 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

DO NOT press 90# for ANYONE.

The GTE Security Department requested that I share this information with EVERYONE I KNOW.

After checking with Verizon they also said it was true,
so do not dial 90# for anyone !!!!!

PASS THIS ON TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW!
