Subject: Don't dial 9-0-#

Subject: Don't dial 9-0-#

9-0-# on your telephone

This is something you should know

If you receive a telephone from an individual identifying
himself as an AT&T Service Technician (could also be Telus) who is
conducting a test on the telephone lines. He will state that to complete
the test you should touch nine(9), zero( 0), the pound sign (#), and then hang
up.

Don't do it !

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.

This scam often originates from prisoners from local jails.

DO NOT press 9-0-# for ANYONE.
