There is a new kind of mobile phone scam. A missed call will show on your mobile phone starting with 090. The last four numbers may vary, but the first four numbers will remain the same. If you call this number back, you will be charged between £1 and £15 per minute. This was previously legal, although ICSTIS (the premium rate telephone number regulators) are clamping down on this. So don't call back any number beginning with 090.

Spread the word.

I have been made aware of the following mobile phone scam.
A missed call will show on a user's mobile phone. The number is
0709 020 3840. The last four numbers may vary, but the first four
numbers remain the same. If you call this number back, you will be charged
£50.00 per minute. People have complained about their phone bills once they
have realised the cost of the call, however this is completely legal. Please
beware, do not call back numbers beginning with 0709. I have been advised by
Vodafone Business Solutions that this scam is operating currently.
Do not return any missed calls beginning with a 0709 prefix.
