One scheme involved inducing users to download a program known as a dialer that surreptitiously dialed a premium-rate number, accumulating charges on the user's phone bill without their knowledge.Another now-uncommon premium-rate scam involves television programming that induces young children to dial the number, banking on the notion that they will be unaware of the charges that will be incurred.the 900 area code was completely restructured by AT&T to be the premium-rate special area code which it remains today.At that time, many evening news agencies conducted "pulse polls" for $.50 per call charges and displayed results on television.Unlike a normal call, part of the call charge is paid to the service provider, thus enabling businesses to be funded via the calls.While the billing is different, calls are usually routed the same way they are for a toll-free telephone number, being anywhere despite the area code used.In some jurisdictions, telephone companies are required by law to offer such blocking.Adult chat lines (phone sex) and tech support are a very common use of premium-rate numbers.

Diplomatic services, such as the US embassy in London or the UK Embassy in Washington, have also charged premium rates for calls from the general public.For example, a "psychic hotline" type of 1-900 number may charge .99 for the first minute and 99 cents for each additional minute.
