Phone Crooks

AT&T has recently released a fraud warning for area code (809). Calls to this area code are billable in the same manner as the (900) area code, that is, you pay for each minute (or second) you are on the phone. The costs are astronomical and some people in the Bahamas are trying to defraud you of your money.

Sophisticated advertising and promotion through e-mails, mass phone messages and other media urge you to call for information on a injured relative, call to obtain your free something, or call to claim your lottery winnings or prize. Pure fraud. The cost per minute - $2,425.00

Don't ever call area code (809) for any reason! We recommend that you not call area code (900) either.
