Hi @EyerexUK

 

I'm very interested in what you've discovered.  Another member recently related that a visiting Openreach engineer believed that a scam call incoming to the customer when the Openreach engineer was there on a repair call was because someone was revealing customer telephone numbers gained from Openreach.

 

In your example, if you're switching to another ISP using the Openreach network then Openreach will have been given your number.

 

As ferguson says, report this to your new ISP so that there's no delay in investigating.
