Larry’s View

Larry’s view on any and everything.

Phone scam,please take care!


We actually received a call last week from the  809  area code.  The woman said ‘Hey, this is Karen. Sorry I missed you–get back to us quickly. I Have something important to tell you.’ Then she repeated a phone number beginning with   809 ‘We didn’t respond’.

Then this week, we received the fol lowing e-mail:

Subject:  DON’T EVER  DIAL AREA CODE  809 , 284  AND 876


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   US , 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. Unfortunately, when you get your phone bill, you’ll often be charged more than $24, 100.00.


The  809  area code is located in theBritish Virgin Islands (The Bahamas).
The charges afterwards 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
