TRIAD warned of new phone scam
A TRIAD member contributed this warning at the October meeting. “I received a telephone call from an individual identifying himself as an AT&T Service Technician who was conducting a test on the telephone lines.”
He stated that to complete the test I should touch (9), zero (O), the pound (#) sign and then hang up.” Luckily the contributor was suspicious and refused.
Upon contacting the telephone company, “I was informed that by doing as I was asked, you give the requesting person full access to your telephone line, which enables them to place long distance calls billed to home phone numbers.”
The TRIAD member further learned this scam originates in many jails and prisons.
TRIAD advisor, Deputy Dan also backed up such advice. Do not press 90# for anyone.
