0800 scammers?

Hi apologies to all but I'm puzzled about the posts regarding the 0800 listed number on the forum and its link to scammers.

 as stated on the forum  one of my posts had issues with tech support relating to BBCIplayer problems (as have many others)

but to be fare to tech support I was contacted by email and by phone to talk over the problem, my puzzlement derives from the fact that the number tech support called from was the 0800 number listed as the number used by scammers, so any idea what this means????the caller was trying to be helpful with no hint of anything sinister

Re: 0800 scammers?

Any caller display number can in fact be spoofed, so don't assume that it is the number it purports to be.
