This caller claimed they were from Talktalk technical department. They said my router could potentially be affected with viruses. To prove they were "genuine" they quoted my name and account number. We were suspicious and hung up.
Unanswered. Message left. Message content. " Today midnight , to keep internet press 1. To get disconnected press 2 ?
Similar to a typical Manchester area code landline number. Recorded message, American female voice, claiming to be BT informing me that my line has been compromised by a foreign country (or words to that effect) and to press 1 to have it sorted out (!)
Silent call. The number looks like a standard Manchester landline area code.
Automated call with the words "this is TalkTalk", American accent.
this call came on 19/6/19 and the caller claimed he was definiatly from talktalk and that I had issues with my internet. I said to him e-mail me and I hung up. I am receiving at least one call every day over the last week and getting fed up with them. Surely if there was a problem talktalk would email me.
this call was automated claiming to be talktalk and asking me to press 1. I hung up as I think it is a scam/
this call came on 18/6/19 claiming to be talktalk tech. dept. stating my internet would be switch off
Voicemail left today from this number saying that they had detected that this ip address had been hacked and my internet was being shut down immediately. This was an automated call and I was told that I should either press option 1 or call the above number. Needless to say I did neither but I checked the number on who-called.co.uk and there have been a spate of reports about this scam today and yesterday, other users were saying that call was from India, trying to get personal information/access to their PC. Can you please block as a matter of urgency? It may be unrelated but I got a pop up yesterday to say had lots of viruses on my PC etc and should shut down, the usual. I closed this as well as I run a reputable AV and no problems reported.
