    Subject: FW: Telephone Danger, 90#

    90# ON THE TELEPHONE

    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 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. 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 for anyone.

    PLEASE PASS ON TO EVERYONE YOU know
    Let
