This long distance phone scam causes consumers to inadvertently incur high charges on their phone bills. Consumers usually receive a message telling them to call a phone number with an 809, 284, 649, or 876 area code in order to collect a prize, find out information about a sick relative, etc. The caller assumes the number is a typical three-digit U.S. area code; however, the caller is actually connected to a phone number outside the United States, often in Canada or the Caribbean, and charged international call rates. Unfortunately, consumers don't find out that they have been charged higher international call rates until they receive their bill.

AT&T recommends the following tips to help avoid the 809 area code scam:

  • Return calls to familiar numbers only. As a general rule, return calls from numbers that contain familiar or recognizable area codes. You may call your directory assistance or long distance operator to check the area code location.
  • Carefully read your telephone bill. Make sure that you only receive charges from your provider of choice. Ensure you thoroughly understand charges listed on your phone bill, have chosen to do business with all of the listed providers billing for those charges and have authorized additional fees invoiced. If your local service provider has changed, you will receive a final bill from the former provider and a notice of service disconnection.

If you believe that you have been scammed:

  • Contact the carrier with whom the charge originated, whose name and toll-free telephone number should be printed on the same bill page as the charge in question. Often, the problem can be resolved with a single phone call.
  • If the carrier with whom the charge originated does not agree to resolve the problem, contact AT&T. AT&T will work with you and the carrier to help remove fraudulent charges from the phone bill.

小心809開頭的電話 一分鐘費用高2425元 
 
小心809開頭的電話 一分鐘費用高2425元!  
最近興起了一種新的電話詐騙手法,要提醒各位觀眾特別注意。如果你有收到留言或電子郵件,要你回電話到區域號碼為809的電話,要提醒你可千萬不要回電,如果一回電,一分鐘將會被收取達2425元的電話費。 
 
AT&T電話公司表示,809區域號碼是巴哈馬等英屬維京群島的付費電話,由於809電話不在政府管轄範圍內,所以一打就會馬上收費,不會先有警告。另外,全美詐騙資訊中心也證實,這項電話詐騙,可在短時間奪走受害者數千甚至數萬元之多,民眾要格外留心。  
 
080 和 0800 的不同,要注意哦!  
現在的免付費電話開頭是0800才對,千萬不要以為前面有080就給騙去喔~ 
 
請千萬注意:之前有人接到一通自稱是郵局的電話,說有掛號郵件被退! 
寄件者為台北市社會局,內有現金支票!需打0809021091轉分機04或05由台北市社會局人員確認。 
 
警察局已確認這是詐騙電話;高額電話費,目前市刑大已在追查。請務必幫忙轉寄。 
0800是免付費電話 
0809是高=付費電話
