Can't tell you much more, except female, slightly foreign sounding voices, one called Shirley. That's about as much as I can say. I suspect that, unlike most scam callers, who use numbers from all over England, they are using local numbers in the hope that I am more likely to answer.
HELLO GOODBYE WAS ALL THAT WAS SAID
Indian voice said he was from talktalk, asked about router and how many lights were flashing and then wanted me to give him control of my computer by pressing windows key. At that point I realised it was a scam and told him I was not going to relinquish control and he hung up. Antony
