We keep getting contacted by a firm stating that our IP address has been compromised .

Go to solution

We keep getting phone calls from a company stating that our IP address has been compromised. It is a recorded message from a lady with an American accent. They threaten to disconnect us if we do not speak to one of their advisors. I am presuming this a scam and not speaking to them but is there anyway we can put an end to such calls. Thank you. Pam

It's a scam 100%, if you have BT call protect which is free, you can block that number, although chances are they'll spoof another and contact again, easier to hang up.

Definitely sounds like a scam @PamF

 

You can never be too careful these days.  Please remain vigilant at all times.

 

Thanks,

I had a similar call this morning from 01284770309.  I hope BT will follow this up.
