KOMMONSENTSJANE – DO NOT DIAL 90# ON YOUR PHONE FOR ANYONE – IT IS A SCAM.

From a friend – Heads up everybody!

Do NOT dial 90# on your phone.

RE: 90# on your telephone.

I dialed ‘0’ to check this out, and the operator confirmed that this was correct, so please pass it on.. (I also checked out snopes.comand truthorfiction.com.)

This is true, and also applies to cell phones!

PASS ON TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW.

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.

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

PLEASE HIT THAT FORWARD BUTTON AND PASS THIS ON TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW!

No matter what – always TRUST BUT VERIFY – in regards to any request via the phone. JUST HANG UP!
