On Saturday, 24 January 1998, Naval Air Station, Joint Reserve Base,
New Orleans' Quarterdeck, received a telephone call from an individual
identifying himself as an AT&T Service Technician that was running a
test on our telephone lines. He stated that to complete the test the
QMOW should touch nine (9), zero (0), pound sign (#) and hang up.
Luckily, the QMOW was suspicious and refused. Upon contacting the
telephone company, we were informed that by pushing 90# you end up
giving the individual that called you access to your telephone line and
allows them to place a long distance telephone call, with the charge
appearing on your telephone bill. We were further informed that this
scam has been originating from many of the local jails/prisons.
Please "pass the word".
