Warning2.

Having just read late last night a warning about a postal and phone scam, that ends up costing you 15.00 pounds, I thought you should be aware of this one.

A call or text is made to your mobile phone by a man claiming to be a mobile phone engineer wanting to check your phone through so he suggests you press 9 and slash and then hangup. Apparently this guy can then access your sim card for all the details it holds.

Not sure if I've got this detail right but an email has been circulated warning local authorities of the scam.

If this man does call me, Mo-Mo, what should I do?

Where's the slash key? I don't seem to have one.
