Current Fraud/Con Scheme On Campus: Southwestern Bell, Telecom, Pacific Bell, MCI, Bell Atlantic and GTE have confirmed the following fraud/con scheme. Victim receives a call from an individual identifying themselves as telephone service technicians who are conducting a test on telephone lines. They state that to complete the test, victim should touch nine (9), zero (0), the pound sign (#), and then hang up. By doing this, you give the requesting individual full access to your telephone line, which enables them to place long distance calls billed to your home phone number. This scam has been originating from many local jails/prisons.
