Telephone Hackery

For most telephone service providers, pressing '90#' on the telephone will allow the person on the other end of the line to charge long-distance calls to your bill. If someone attempts to entice you into pressing this sequence, it's probably a scam. If you've fallen prey to this scam, contact your phone company.

In other news, I really hate it when people forwarding around assorted warnings about viruses, hacks, and so forth have the warning so badly formatted that it's hard to read. The alarmist nature of the language of most of this sort of warning is also annoying. I hate being talked to like I'm stupid, even though I know it's generally nothing personal. I'm just clueful. Joe & Jane Average User aren't. It's still annoying.
