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.
Lisa phoned supposedly from TalkTalk saying there was a problem with my account. My wife told her I was out and would phone back this p.m. An email also arrived saying my account had been suspended as the account was in arrears and inviting me to 'Update TalkTalk Account Now' to pay off the overdue balance. I contacted TalkTalk customer services who confirmed that both call and email were scams. I deleted the email.
Automatic call Internet will be turned off due faurdulant use
I was called today at about 1441hrs. Told that the caller was from the technical dept of talktalk and she wanted me to check how many router lights were on. I was asked how many devices I had and to turn on my computer. She then hung up.
It was an automated call claiming my BT broadband had been compromised and offering options to solve the problem. I just hung up.
This was an automated message claiming to be from Talktalk advising that my internet access would be switched off and asking me to press 1. I can see that this is a known problem but it may be that the scammers are using different phone numbers
