Called three times from this number today. Caller, ‘Chris’, claimed to be from my internet provider Talktalk (I am with other provider!). He said that they had detected malware on my server and wanted to log onto my computer to eliminate the risk. He asked whether my router was flashing green or red and then asked me what device I was using to access the internet. He asked me to turn my computer on. During his final call today, he hung up after I left him waiting for me to turn the computer on for 15 minutes.
