Telephone Scam in USA

Yesterday I read that the well known area code 809 scam has a new twist. The
809 area code has been broken up into 17 new area codes. For example, one of
them is 242 which is Bahamas. According to a news report, some calls cost as
much as $25, with $30 being the average. In one case a company was swindled
out of $75. So look out if you get a page or msg on your answering machine
with a suspicious area code. You can always call the AT&T operator to check
where a particular area code is, if you run into one which looks suspicious.
