The Dial 809 Scam

NEVER DIAL AREA CODE 809

Do not ever respond to Emails, Phone Calls, or Web Pages which tell you To call an "809" phone number. If you call from the U.S., you will probably be charged $25 per-minute!

The 809 area code is located in the the Bahamas. This area code is used as a "pay-per-call" number, similar to 900 numbers in the US. But since the Bahamas are not in the US, it is not covered by US regulations of 900 numbers, which require that you be notified and warned of charges and rates involved when you call a "pay-per-call" number.
