Landline rang at 09.08. Recorded Announcement. "BT Landline & Broadband Outage. How to stay Connected", went through twice.
Ringing tone. A male voice then introduces himself as BT, and starts with "Is this your line . . ." I stopped him there, with "HOW DO I KNOW THIS AIN'T A SCAM !" He hung up. THAT'S HOW I KNOW IT'S A SCAM.
1471. Comes back with 07775846678. Submitted a BT SCAM CALLS ticket.
It all fits this scenario:- Your broadband service. We'll never call and:
Tell you your router or IP address has been compromised
Tell you your broadband has been hacked
Threaten to disconnect your service unless you make a payment immediately.
