I'm sure this has been posted elsewhere, but PLEASE take 1 minute to call the Do Not Call Registry for the U.S. Starting April 1st I believe, all cell phone numbers will become publicly available to telemarketers and the like.

I hate answering my phone to numbers I don't know, that one has given me a call a few times, and I've ignored.

This identical style of scam is all over europe in the past few years. The phone number you are trying to access is a ghost number. When you press the pre-defined digits on your own cell phone you WILL ALLOW them to use your cell phone in making any local or international phone calls while you will be billed. They WILL be able to listen to every incoming or outgoing call. They WILL have access to all your stored information within your cell phone. If you connect to the Internet via your cell phone then they WILL have all your information that is stored on your laptop.
This method also works via sms .
edit : Try and inform as many people as you can.

Without sounding arrogant or misleading or hostile, but without showing you how its done, you obviously will not believe me. Since i WILL not show the methods involved, i cannot force you in trusting me what i have posted.
All i would like to say is that YES its ABSOLUTELY TRUE, these methods have been used with similar or exact methods as i posted previously. I am not here to act as some super wiz geek. I am just stating that yes its TRUE and yes i HAVE achieved similar access and above what has been posted to cell phones, with the full understand of participants to stress the flaws involved in certain cell phone models.
edit: 3rd party information is not what i deal with, its people similar to myself who provide so called "3rd party's" with information, who then go on to post the flaws on various black hat forums. As a result, idiots perform or try to perform scams on unsuspecting citizens and end up being victims.
As i have said.
*Please inform you local authorities of any or similar methods*

I Hate Hate, hate Scammers!!. Honestly the US Govt. needs to really crack down on ANYONE who tries to scam.. Send a clear message that if you get caught scamming it's 20 Years in prision. Regardless if it's your 1st time or 10th time..Usually though most scams take place over seas.
Also my advice to ANYONE who has a bank account and uses a debit card. Go to your bank and set up Electronic money transfer protection. Also give them(your bank) your phone # and tell them to call you if ANYTHING comes up suspious. Electronic money transfers are by far the most dangerous. Try to pay you big bills by check. And NEVER use a debit card on line! If you have to use a card to buy something on line use a regular credit card!! Banking on line is crazy. there's just so many bot's, traces, worms virus's it's better to just not take the chance.
