9-0# Scam

A 9-0# scam preys on businesses that use PBX systems or other types of telecommunication systems where you have to dial "9" to get an outside line. A fraudster will call the main number at a business and identify themselves as an employee of the phone company. To perform a system check, the caller will ask the receptionist to initiate a conference call and then press 9 plus 0, which accesses an outside line. The receptionist is then asked to hang up. Often, this leaves the caller with access to the outside line, where he or she can make fraudulent long distance calls that are billed to the business.

Tips to protect yourself from the 9-0# scam: 
  • Hang up the phone or ask pointed questions, including requesting a callback number.
