This is my own number which I wanted to check on the service. Please do not log this as a nuisance call.
I have no dial time or broadband this is now 2 days. 01375 856650 Mrs Rawles Ash Lea Farm West Tilbury Essex RM18 8TS
Informed me they were from talktalk and wanted to talk to me about my broadband. I responded that the longer you speak to me on the phone the more time the police have to trace this call. They immediately hung up, but someone else tried again and I gave them a similar message.
I received a call from this number today. he was an Indian man and he said that he was calling from my internet provider Talktalk (instant suspicion as we moved to Plusnet in the summer!) however i played along to get more information. He said that they were going to shut down our internet access in 30 minutes as our line had be compromised. He asked me if I can given my WIFI passwords or code to a neighbour, i said no. He asked if I had a computer in the house. I said I did, he asked me to turn it on and he would be able to show me for my own eyes on the screen that I was under threat. At this point I informed him that I would do no such thing and I was aware that this was a scam as my elderly father had been conned by the same tactic a few years ago. He then became aggressive and shouted that it was not a scam and that i was going to lose my connection at which point I told him i'd be reporting him and I hung up.
Reporting that it is an urgent call from Microsoft I haven't stayed online so not sure what it is for
Called today, said he was from talktalk, suddenly hung up when asked to repeat himself as i couldn't understand him, only been with them over 2 months, as i didn't request such unsolicited phone calls when i joined them even for customer satisfaction, blocked number, specially after reading this.
Same as above again
This number called today, asked if this is so and so and when I answered "yes it is" they ended the call. I got suspicious and redial the number but the number was not recognised.
Threat that my broadband service will be disconnected without further ado. Mentions BT in the automated conversation. Call terminated by recipient.
Male English accent saying he was forwarding a call from BT Tech dept. - press1 or press 2 etc.
