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:
800 Million Calls
Find out who called you and see what everyone else is saying about it
Help others stay alert by commenting and sharing your experience
We’ll investigate problem numbers with a view to block bad callers from reaching our customers.
01278508144: My wife was called from this number today. The caller claimed to be from BT and said that our ip address was compromised. He persuaded my wife to go through a number of actions and even got the name of our bank from her. He tried to get her to log on to the bank. We haven't set up her computer to do this however so she was unable to comply (Hooray). He said he'd call back. When he did, I took the call and refused to do anything without further checking. I several times asked for his telephone number so that I could check it out and then call him back. He ignored these requests. When I refused to go any further he got quite shirty and said that he was going to blacklist our ip address and we wouldn't be able to get TalkTalk to reset it. We have sent my wife's computer to an expert to check it out for malware but I think the Scam Protection and our own security has saved the day. David Balston
