CONSUMER BEWARE: They're at it again! This time, it's a phone call from an individual describing himself as an AT&T service technician, who said he was conducting a test on the telephone lines. He stated that in order complete the test, the person on the other end of the call should touch nine, zero and # and then hang up. Upon contacting the phone company, our source was informed that by pushing 90#, you're giving the requesting person full access to your telephone line, which enables him to place long-distance calls billed to your phone number. Do not dial 90# for anyone!
