hoax call regarding router

Go to solution

I have received a call from BT technical team saying that my router has attention    I put caller off as he is saying I need to have my computer ready when he calls back this morning This did not seem usual for BT to be concerned about my computer I am concerned that this is a hoax Has anyone experienced this type of call?

Any such calls you may get suggesting they are from BT are scammers trying to steal password etc from your computer and ultimately money from your bank etc.

BT will never make an unsolicited call to you to tell you there is a problem of any sort with your equipment and they will never make an unsolicited call requesting access to your computer.
