Phone crooks lurk

A SCAM has been uncovered that enables fraudulent use of mobile phone SIM cards at the phone owner’s expense.

A statement issued by the Bunbury Chamber of Commerce warned that mobile phone users who received a call on their phone from someone claiming to be a Cellnet or Vodafone engineer should be wary.

Should the caller advise that they are checking the phone and request the mobile phone owner to press #90 or 90#, the recipient should end the call immediately.

Pressing the requested sequence will give the caller access to the phone’s SIM card and to free phone calls at the owner’s expense.
