Two calls today from 01476 895312 to say my internet is being terminated today!

I had two calls today to tell me my internet was unsecured and that they were terminating my internet access today! They said they were from BT and asked if I had any devices linked to this account and could I turn them on?  I hung up at this point and they rang back but got the answerphone.  Unsurprisingly they didn't leave a message on the answerphone, I could hear a call centre in the background.

Had a call from 'B.T.' today telling me my internet was going to be terminated today due to non payment. Could they take some details to sort it out and go to my computer etc.

I know I am up to date with my payments, because I carefully check my statements.

This kind of call is usually  from someone with an Indian accent, strangely today it seemed the man had a Canadian accent, I suppose everyone's at it though.
