People have been getting calls supposedly representing AT&T Telephone Company. They are telling the person answering the phone they are conducting a test of the line. Then they ask the individual to press 90# to complete the test.

These calls are not from any telephone company. In fact, most are originating from prison lines.

By pressing 90# you are enabling the person calling you access to your telephone account. Now this person has free reign to make any call he wants anywhere in the world.

This scam has been confirmed by AT&T as well as verizon telephone company’s. If you get one of these calls do not press 90#. Hang up and contact your telephone supplier immediately.
