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

A male with an Indian accent called, first from another number I've just reported and then from this second number. First he said he was from Microsoft, but later in the call when I asked him to verify he said he was from Talk Talk. He said that someone had been sending spam and/ or phishing emails from my email address. He said he'd received complaints. He gave me a password to reset my email password, and I asked why he had to do this. He couldn't explain, but said my name was at risk if "something happened" as a result of the emails supposedly coming from my account. He suggested I would be liable for something or another. I countered that I didn't think it to be true, since no such activity could be traced to my ISP address. He hung up.

Computer generated voice said my Amazon Prime account subscription was about to be taken (don't currently have one) and to avoid this I should press 1 to speak to a representative. I hung up. Obviously not genuine.

Text message pretending to be EE unable to process your latest bill. In order to avoid fees update your billing information and then includes a website link. I'm on pay as you go so feels like a scam.

No-one answered when I said hello. After second time saying hello a “gentleman” said hello and his name was Mark. After a long hesitation he said he was from talktalk. He didn’t seem to remember which company he was from. Obviously a scam so I put the phone down.
