    :shock: Snopes.com confirms this one.. please pass on
    90# on your telephone

    I dialed ‘0’ and asked the operator who confirmed that
    this was correct so please pass it on…
    (l also checked out Snopes.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.

    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!!!
