> 809 Area Code
> We actually received a call last week from the 809 area code. The
> woman said 'Hey, this is Karen. Sorry I missed you- get back to us
> quickly. I have something important to tell you.' Then she repeated a
> phone number beginning with 809. We did not respond. Then this week,
> we received the following e-mail:
>
> Do Not DIAL AREA CODE 809, 284, AND 876 from the U.S. or Canada.
>
> THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT INFORMATION PROVIDED TO US BY AT&T. DON'T EVER
> DIAL AREA CODE 809
>
> This one is being distributed all over the US ... This is pretty
> scary, especially given the way they try to get you to call.
>
> Be sure you read this and pass it on.
>
> They get you to call by telling you that it is information about a
> family member who has been ill or to tell you someone has been
> arrested, died, or to let you know you have won a wonderful prize,
> etc..
> In each case, you are told to call the 809 number right away. Since
> there are so many new area codes these days, people unknowingly return
> these calls.
>
> If you call from the U.S. or Canada, you will apparently be charged a
> minimum of
> $2425 per-minute.
>
> And you'll also get a long recorded message. The point is, they will
> try to keep you on the phone as long as possible to increase the
> charges.
> WHY IT WORKS:
>
> The 809 area code is located in the Dominican Republic .
> The charges afterward can become a real nightmare. That's because you
> did actually make the call. If you complain, both your local phone
> company and your long distance carrier will not want to get involved
> and will most likely tell you that they are simply providing the
> billing for the foreign company. You'll end up dealing with a foreign
> company that argues they have done nothing wrong.
>
> Please forward this entire message to your friends, family and
> colleagues to help them become aware of this scam.
