    There is a costly new area code scam going on and if you receive a call from area code 809 do not call them back. If you call from the U.S. or Canada, you will apparently be charged a minimum of $2,425 per-minute.

    Other scam area codes are 284, 649 and 876.

    I actually received two calls on my iPhone last week with the 809 area code. I usally just let those go to voicemail or I answer and hang up real quick, but don't ever call them back.
