Scam!

People are being tricked into dialling a £1500 per minute hotlinewhich keeps them talking whilst their phone bill racks up.

Scammers dupe their victims into ringing an 0809 number by claiming to have information about a sick friend.

But the number is registered in the Dominican Republic and calls from the UK cost £25 per second!

You've been warned - don't fall for it!
