Just got this from a friend. I am sure i have seen it somewhere b4. But thought i would put it here anyways. Dear All

If you receive a phone call on your mobile from any person, saying that he
or she is a company engineer, or telling that they're checking your mobile
line, and you have to press #90 or #09 or any other number, end this call
immediately without pressing any numbers.

There is a fraud company using a device that once you press #90 or #09
they can access your 'SIM' card and make calls at your expense.
Forward this message to as many colleagues, relatives and friends as you
can, to stop it.

Many thanks for your time regarding this matter, take care and regards.

Watch for text messages scam saying “you’ve got a parcel”!
There’s a scam doing the rounds. If you get a text message saying something like "URGENT! A large parcel is awaiting delivery, please call +43820990914 for delivery tomorrow. From International Parcel Deliveries", DO NOT call it, or any other number listed, as it’s a scam to get you to dial, which will cost around £1/min on most mobiles. Instead ignore and report it to your network provider.
