False alarm

Townsville Bulletin - - Voice Of The North -

THERE’S a scam go­ing around about the re­lease of mo­bile phone num­bers to tele­mar­keters and threat­en­ing that sub­scribers will be charged for calls to their num­bers from same. Ac­cord­ing to the Aus­tralian Com­mu­ni­ca­tions and Me­dia Au­thor­ity which is in charge of these things, this email comes from the US and has been crudely adapted for Aus­tralia. In the US the phone sys­tem is com­pletely dif­fer­ent and it’s not go­ing to hap­pen here, so we can all stop wor­ry­ing.
