Mobile Phone Scam
I received the following message from a friend tonight about the latest mobile phone scam. I'm not saying it will happen, but it's best to be informed:

If you receive a phone call on your mobile from any person, saying that, he or she is a company engineer, or telling you that they're checking your mobile line, and you have to press #90 or #09 or any other number. End this call immediately without pressing any numbers. There is a fraud company using a device that once you press #90 or #09 they can access your "SIM" card and make calls at your expense. Forward this message to as many colleagues, relatives and friends as you can, to stop it.

I'm afraid this was a hoax email encouraging you to send emails to everyone you know:

"This is a series of hoax messages warning about fictious mobile phone viruses. The viruses described in these messages do not exist and they have nothing to do with real mobile phone viruses " - see www.f-secure.com/hoaxes/cf_virus.shtml & more on our virus info page puertopollensa.com/virusalerts.html

Sorry Pollensa!

This email was sent to me by a friend who works for the police!

The amount of spam/scam emails I'm getting at the moment is getting silly even though I have really good spam filters on my computer.


Thanks for letting me know - I'll tell my friend.
