Scam

Yet another attempt, presumably from India.

Received a call today, number withheld, from an Indian sounding chap who maintained he was from BT Open Reach at 81 Newgate St, London, EC1A7AJ
 
When asked he gave his phone number 08702257879
 
He gave his name as Charles Wilson
 
He sent me a text to my mobile with a code to repeat to him. I gave him a different code. . . . 
 
He then advised you would be cutting off my provision etc etc
 
Obviously, after playing him for a while, he hung up.
 
However, I thought you would be interested.

Re: Scam

Hi @pashby, that was almost certainly a scam call as Openreach wouldn't ever call a customer out of the blue to take about cutting someone off. If you wouldn't mind reporting the scam call on this link it will help us fight the scammers.

Re: Scam

Thanks! I reported both calls I received this morning. After asking them numerous questions, I did ask them , quite seriously, if they wanted to hack my computer or scam my bank. Amazingly, they hung up.
