Last year in the UK, 11 billion pounds was taken by fraudsters, it’s a growing problem and we want to put the scammers out of action, it’s not right and it’s not fair. With Check and Report, we can help you be in control of your call security, check who called you and if it’s a troublesome caller, report it and we’ll do the rest.
Working together, this year we've blocked:

We’ll investigate problem numbers with a view to block bad callers from reaching our customers.
Called offering technical support - claimed there was a serious problem with my computer and internet connection. Told me to press windows and r and type in cmd to confirm customer number. Then told me to type in eventvwr at which point I repeated that I was unsure and would call talk talk myself. They muttered in a language I didn't understand and I hung up.
Claiming to be from Talk Talk, said I had a problem with my internet connection and if he could fix that he could fix me and read out my address.
Caller claimed to be from Talk Talk informing me of a problem with my router and I would have to log in to my computer. I asked for verification caller was from Talk Talk and worryingly they quoted my name, address and account number. I asked for confirmation of my NI number and they ended the call
- phone call claiming to be from TalkTalk - Said that their service will be compromised
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.
Had 3 calls a day from this number & other numbers starting with 01708. Wednesday AM 17/08/2018
