Constant telephone calls supposedly from someone at BT. Today said Internet being closed down.

Go to solution

Want somebody to come out and see me to talk to face to face.  Cannot understand word the phone callers are saying. They are either foreign or speak so fast I cannot understand them.

Have been told that this is not possible,

Yes, I've had this, and it's annoying.

This first time this happened I stated that the caller was nothing more than a scammer and criminal. The reply was an abusive comment and then the call was terminated by the caller.

Later, an automated message informed that my internet line was going to be cut-off due to activity at a California exchange. Naturally I ignored this.

As a comment. What has been created is an environment whereby anybody who calls you cannot verify their identity, and so those answering the call must assume the caller is a criminal. We can’t rely on the displayed number as chances are it is fictitious.

I pity BT or Openreach if they have to communicate via telephone. Chances are they will receive a brisk ‘go-away’ (or other suitable command) as many consumers now assume criminals are calling! Remember also, there’s a team pretending to be Microsoft Windows support trying to get you.

Remember, never confirm your name. When asked, you ask who’s calling and assume you are speaking to a criminal.
