Mobile phone Scam?

This is what I just got in my inbox as a forwarded message. First time Im hearing of this, but I thought I ought to share it just in case it is true:

"If you receive a phone call on your mobile from any person saying that they are checking your mobile line, and you have to press #90 or #09 or any other number. End this call immediately without pressing any numbers.

Friends there is a fraud company using a device that once you press #90 or #09 they can access your SIM card and make calls at your expense. Forward this message to as many friends as u can, to stop it.

This information has been confirmed by both Motorola and Nokia. There are over 3 million affected mobile phones. You can check this news at CNN web site also.
