Recently Reported Numbers

We all know unwanted called are an irritation, especially when you don’t always have a way of stopping them, that’s why we’ve created Check & Report and with your help we can Beat the Scammers together, here are the latest numbers you’ve reported to us

my wife received a (scam) call from 01428460040 today around 1300. The call said" your internet connection will be disconnected in 24-48 hours because your ip address has been compromised for several countries. Please press 1 to speak to an engineer." Unfortunately my wife pressed 1 and spoke to an 'engineer'. Apart from confirming her name and that she wasn't the account holder she said she couldn't help and asked them to call back later which the caller accepted. Has our landline and/or broadband been compromised?

Person on the line claimed to be from the Talk Talk technical department reporting a hacking problem with our broadband. They tried to drive us through some steps to get into our computer (Teamviewer or similar). Since we know that no contact should be performed by Talk Talk directly and in this manner we decided to ask them for an engineer visit instead. Following since they couldnt reply satisfactory we hanged up.
