If you receive a phone call on your mobile from any person, saying that,
he or she is a company engineer, or telling that they're checking your
mobile line, and you have to press # 90 or #09 or any other number. End
this call immediately without pressing any numbers.
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 you can, to stop it.
All mobile users pay attention if you receive a phone call and your
Mobile phone displays (XALAN) on the screen don't answer the call,
END THE CALL IMMEDIATELY, if you answer the call, your phone will be infected by a virus. This virus will erase all IMEI and IMSI information from both your phone and your SIM card, which will make your phone unable to connect with the telephone network. You will have to buy a new phone.
This information has been confirmed by both Motorola and Nokia. There are
over 3 Million mobile phones being infected by this virus in all around
the world now. You can also check this news in the CNN web site.

PLEASE FORWARD THIS PIECE OF INFORMATION TO ALL YOUR FRIENDS HAVING A MOBILE
