"90# On Your Telephone"

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 dialed '0' to check this out, and the operator confirmed that this was correct, so please pass it on (l also checked out id="yui_3_16_0_ym19_1_1462933284136_6136" href=" target="_blank" rel="nofollow" shape="rect">, href=" target="_blank" rel="nofollow" shape="rect"> & other hoax sites).  This is true, and also applies to cell phones!)

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!!

Please Hit That Forward Button And Pass This On To Everyone You Know!!
