Dear All

If you receive a phone call on your mobile from any person, saying that he
or she is a company engineer, or telling that they're checking your mobile
line, and you have to press #90 or #09 or any other number, end this call
immediately without pressing any numbers.

There is a fraud company using a device that once you press #90 or #09
they can access your 'SIM' card and make calls at your expense.

Forward this message to as many colleagues, relatives and friends as you
can, to stop it.
