             New  Area Code - PLEASE READ Be sure you read this and pass it  on.
 809Area  Code 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 did not respond.  Then this week, we received the following e-mail:
Do  Not DIAL AREA  CODE 809, 284, AND 876  from the UK . U.S. Or Canada .

This one is being  distributed all over the US & UK ... 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 UK . U.S or  Canada , you will apparently be charged a minimum of  £1850 per-minute.And  you'll also 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.

The 809 area  code is located in the Dominican Republic ..
 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.
