Subject: FYI

For your information and protection:
I received a telephone call last evening from an individual identifying
himself as an AT&T Service technician who was conducting a test on our
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
to your telephone line, which allows them to place long distance calls
billed to your home phone number. I was further informed that this scam
been originating from many of the local jails/prisons. I have also
verified this information with UCB telecomm, Pacific Bell,MCI,Bell,
Atlantic, GTE and NYNEX. 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 this
information on to them,

Ronald Gochenouer
