Urgent Message from TELEKOM Malaysia!!
To those who have a telekom home phone, please read. Here is the original text received from Telekom:
If you get a call from someone identifying himself as a phone technician performing a test, and this person asks you to touch nine( 9 ), zero( 0 ),hash sign ( # ) and then hang up... Please REFUSE TO DO SO! By pushing 90# , you are giving the individual, who called you, access to your telephone line and allowing them to place a long distance call with the charges appearing on your telephone bill.
We were further informed that line scam has been originating from many of the local jails/prisons.
Please pass the word around.
