Hackers using my internet - is this a scam call?

First Timer
Message 3 of 3

I have received a couple of calls from someone on my landline saying that they're calling from TalkTalk, saying that hackers are using our internet. I have no way of knowing they are who they say they are and therefore have cut the call very short - and I can't find a phone number to actually call TalkTalk to speak to someone to check if there actually IS a problem...


Can you anyone provide a) the customer services phone number for TalkTalk, and b) has anyone else received these kinds of calls?

TalkTalk would never call you like that out of the blue. It is a scam. If you have a record of the number that called use Check and Report from the community menu.


The main contact number is 0345 172 0088.
