RETURNING CALLS FROM STRANGE AREA CODES MAY COST YOU BIG$$$

In a message dated 10/14/2008 7:05:02 P.M. Central Daylight Time, SHANNON402 writes:
IMPORTANT INFO ABOUT AREA CODE

We actually received a call last week from the 809 area code. The woman said 'Hey, this is Karen . Sorry I missed you--get back to us quickly. I have something important to tell you.' Then she repeated a phone number beginning with 809 We didn't respond.
Then this week, we received the following e-mail:
Do Not DIAL AREA CODE 809, 284, AND 876
THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT INFORMATION PROVIDED TO US BY AT&T. DON'T EVER DIAL AREA CODE 809

This one is being distributed all over the US . This is pretty scary, especially given the way they try to get you to call.

Be sure you read this and pass it on.

They get you to call by telling you that it is information about a family member who has been ill or to tell you someone has been arrested, died, o r to let you know you have won a wonderful prize, etc.
In each case, you are told to call the 809 number right=2 0away.. Since there are so many new area codes these days, people unknowingly return these calls.

If you call from the U.S. , you will apparently be charged $2425 per-minute.

Or, you'll get a long recorded message. The point is, they will try to keep you on the phone as lon g as possible to increase the charges. Unfortunately, when you get your phone bill, you'll of ten be charged more than $24,100.00.

WHY IT WORKS:

The 809 area code is located in the British Virgin Islands (The Bahamas).
The charges afterwards can become a real nightmare. That's because you did actually make the call. If you complain, both your local phone company and your long distance carrier will not want to get involved and will most likely tell you that they are simply providing the billing for the foreign company. You'll end up dealing with a foreign company that argues t hey have done nothing wrong.

Please forward this entire message to your friends, family and colleagues to help them become aware of this scam.
