I keep receiving phone calls from a 'TalkTalk Engineer' with an indian accent who (he and sometimes she) says i have internet issues and that they will be helping me, they tell me an account number to make me believe it, and I keep saying its wrong so they just hangup.
I don't see their phone number therefore I cannot report it or block it, is there anything else to stop receiving these calls, and why despite the last wave of publicly reported scams on talktalk customers, we are still target of these people.
I don't know of any of my friends and colleagues on BT or Virgin receiving scam calls so frequently at least...

Because the scammers don't care about any warnings - they will keep trying as long as they keep making money, using whatever data they already have.
