Verification:

The post is a mix of hoax and a little of truth.
Let us list it out in parts.

 

No.1:
*If you call back, they can copy your contact list in 3 sec
&
If U have bank
or
Credit card details on your phone,
they can copy that too…
 This is NOT TRUE. No one can copy phone details through just a normal phone call.
However, during 2012 Mid-Day reported an alert about such calls.

 

No.2:
These calls may be under ISIS
Don’t answer
or Call back.
This part is hoax. Its mere speculation with no supporting evidence.

 

No.3:
Also, Don’t Press
#90 or #09
on your Mobile when asked by any caller.
It’s a New Trick of Terrorists to access your SIM card, Make calls at your expense and frame you as a criminal.
 This is the ONLY partially true section in this post.
The new trick by terrorists is a weak claim. However fraudsters may be able to make calls on your account if they can convince you to dial #90 or #09.
