Donít press 90# on your telephone

This was sent to me by a friend


> 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), ze ro(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 !!!!!

> I dialed '0', to check this out, asked the operator, who confirmed that this was correct
> so please pass it on . . . (l also checked out Snopes.Com <http://snopes.Com/> . This is true, and also applies to cell phones!)
