Apparently this guy has been sending the same message to every newsgroup and
public mailing list on the network. It seems that the numbers are in Sao
Tome and this is some kind of scam so that the phone company there (or
individuals operating through it) can get foreign currency - AT&T bills you
and pays them. (It isn't free, of course, but costs about $5 per minute.) My
information is that the person who posted these messages has been
unceremoniously dumped off the network and has disappeared into cyberspace.
