Scam phone calls

Go to solution

I keep getting phone calls saying my internet will be cut off in 48 hours because of illegal activity. I am assuming its a scam, and ignoring it, but can anyone confirm if this is a scam?

It is a scam. BT will never call you to inform you of that or anything similar.

Have had three calls on the same topic today from BT “technical department “. Three different numbers, but two from an “Orange” mobile prefix and one from a landline in Germany.

Third Call was most demanding and a sense of desperation, or more likely frustration, as each time I put the phone down.

Hi @Polohan ,

I assume you are a BT customer. Do you have BT Call Protect activated ?  It will stop a lot but not all bogus nuisance and spoofed calls.
