Just for info.... received a call today ostensibly from BT - telephone number 02083536641 - a recorded message saying there had been unauthorised traffic on my landline and internet...... if I didn't do something my phone would be cut off...... press 1 to speak to an operator......
No thanks I thought, and hung up...... so this is just to say watch out - scammers about.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Thanks for that - got another one about 2 hours later from a different number......
Since working from home during lockdown. I get at least 3 a day from BT, Amazon, openreach just to name a few of the companies calling me saying my account has been compromised, my router is sending out errors, someone is using my IP address. Blah blah blah.. Some of the numbers used by these scammers are normal working lines. Getting to the point now of having my answering machine on announce just to say this number not in use but to call my mobile
Hi - I have now been targeted by scam caller apparently from India but with UK mobile numbers claiming to be BT saying I have a lot of different IP addresses logging into my broadband. First time I didn't check number of caller (as you do), but said nothing wrong and all secure - she just hung up. I then reported to number to BT scams. Second call today and same woman (?) told me same thing - when I said no way - she hung up again - I think different mobile number - but have reported again and a blacklisted.
Didn't get as far as being asked for any details - but please beware of this one - defo a scam
Does anyone know if you can be charged if you press 1 to reply to a scam call
Have not dared to press 1 , just wondered if anyone had pressed 1 and been charged
