    Default not sure if this works in the states too, but it might

    Subject: 90# on your telephone. I dialed ' 0 '

    You may want to pass this on to Family and friends

    Re: 90# on your telephone.

    I dialed ' 0 ' and asked the operator who did confirm that this was correct so please pass it on.

    PASS ON TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW

    I received a telephone call last evening from an individual identifying himself as a Telus Serviceman 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 Telus, they said it was true, so do not dial 90# for anyone!!!!!

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

    I do just the opposite.

    In fact, my number is frequently called by 3 of our area prisons and I routinely let them have free access to my phone (I have unlimited calling VoIP)

    In return, I am kept well stocked with free booze, hookers, and drugs.

    What more could a guy want?
