I had a call from an Asian "lady" at about 4 pm today, although I had difficulties understanding her at first.
She claimed to be from TalkTalk and to have my account details but didn't divulge them.
I stalled her while I looked up the number she was calling from and then started to read out some of the comments showing that she was a scammer. Before I got very far, she had hung up.
I have tried to report this to TalkTalk using the link in another post, but it won't let me fill in the date of the call and then tells me it's a required field! I decided to "report" via this message instead, so I would appreciate an official response to this post, particularly about the apparent non-functionality of the reporting system. (I tried to call the Freephone number but finished up in an endless loop!)
Asian man phoned from Talk Talk technical team. No charges, no log in, just helping because of a problem they could see affecting getting on Internet and my computer data. I was very sceptical and told him. He passed me on to someone "senior". I acted thick as he instructed me which keys I had on the bottom left of my keyboard. He wanted me top reds the Windows button and run a program that would show me on the screen the problem I was having. I further asked that j ring them back to verify call was genuine. He hung up.
Question TalkTalk. HOW DO THEY HAVE MY ACCOJNT NUMBER.
