Written by Richard Lowe

Continued from page 1

Here's how this works. The 809 area code is similar in concept to 900 numbers. You get charged either per call or byrepparttar minute. The problem is thatrepparttar 127574 809 area code is in a foreign country (the Dominican Republic inrepparttar 127575 Caribbean) and thus is not covered by United States law.

Inrepparttar 127576 United States, all 900 numbers must state in their advertisements and atrepparttar 127577 start ofrepparttar 127578 callrepparttar 127579 cost ofrepparttar 127580 call. You also have a small period of time (usuallyrepparttar 127581 first minute) to hang up without being charged.

The 809 area code has no such restrictions. And since you maderepparttar 127582 call voluntarily, it's very difficult to getrepparttar 127583 phone company to reverserepparttar 127584 charges. In fact, in many cases you will find yourself arguing with a foreign phone company which argues that you did makerepparttar 127585 call and they did nothing wrong and thus you need to pay.

The way to fight this scam is to simply refuse to call any unknown phone numbers inrepparttar 127586 809 area code. Inrepparttar 127587 company that I work in my day job, we have completely blocked ALL calls torepparttar 127588 809 area code. We had to do this after getting nailed for many thousands of dollars of fraudulent calls.

It is also important to understand that 900 number blocking does not apply torepparttar 127589 809 area code. You have to depend upon your own knowledge ofrepparttar 127590 scam and simply resistrepparttar 127591 temptation to callrepparttar 127592 number.
