Don't rush to use the hotel phone - it might be just a scam
Posted on 27-Aug-2003 08:09 | Tags Filed under: News



This is the most outrageous thing I've read lately: "Businessman Ronnie McGuire is flooding Scotland with high-tech phone jammers that are illegal to use. He is importing the gadgets from Taiwan to sell to hotels, restaurants, bars and bed and breakfasts.

The devices emit radio waves which wipe out the signal to mobile phones, rendering them useless. Mobile phone users have no idea their signal has been sabotaged. But callers are forced to use expensive hotel phone lines or call boxes.

McGuire said: "I've sold quite a few to hotels and bed and breakfasts.""
