    Do Not DIAL AREA CODE

    809 ,284 , AND 876

    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. , you will apparently be charged $2425 per-minute.

    Or, you'll 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.

    AT&T VERIFIES IT'S TRUE :

    Code:

    just wanted to warn you guys. some shady stuff right there.

    How is that possible?
    My family is in the Dominican Rep. and i call
    all the time.
    Dominicans would go on a riot if this was true.
    Or maybe im missing something here.
    I will dig in anyways and see what i can find out.
    Thanks for the heads up.

    Stupid...there is no possible way for anyone to charge $3000 a minute for an out of country call. All that those codes are is out of country calls that cost a little more money. Don't know where you are getting $3000 a minute from dude.

    http://www-cse.ucsd.edu/~bsy/area.html is helpful

    They are all for the British Virgin Islands and Jamaica, the other 2 are split from the 809 area code.

    The scammers will make multiple calls using the same line and it will run bills to thousands or more. Be careful, it is true.
