    I have received this today and thought maybe you should all be aware, just in case it is true :eek: some people try anything now days to scam :mad:

    If you receive a call on your Mobile from any person saying that he or she is a company engineer, or telling you that they are checking your mobile line, and ask you to press #90 or #09 or any other number end the call immediately without pressing the numbers,
    This is a fraud company using a device that once you press #90 or #09 they can access your SIM card and make calls that will be billed to your phone number :eek: :mad: please let everyone know so this can be stopped
    from Phil Corris, Police Constable/Crime Prevention Officer
