Fraud: Callers charged thousands in Caribbean telephone scam A phone scam using an area code in the Caribbean is being used to charge people thousands of dollars on their phone bills across the country. According to AT&T, people receive messages on their answering machine or pager to dial a number beginning with area code 809 because a family member is ill or has died, the person has won a prize or other reasons. By calling the number, people are charged $2,425 per minute, as much as $24,100, which then appears on their regular phone bills. The 809 area code is located in the Bahamas and is in the process of being split into other area codes, including 242, 246, 264, 284, 345, 441, 473, 664, 758, 767, 784, 787, 868, 869 and 876. AT&T is asking people to disregard the message or investigate without calling the number. If such a call is received, people can report it to the National Fraud Information Center, Washington, D.C., by calling (800) 876-7060. ________________ Entertainment: Festival lets visitors explore region’s Scottish heritage The McPherson Scottish Festival and Highland Games at Lakeside Park, gave visitors a chance to learn more about the region’s cultural heritage. ________________ Hallmark Symposium: Prize-winning illustrator to give lecture at KU Caldecott Medal-winning medalist Stephen T.
