They say they are from BT and want to talk about and issue with your computer. Followed the instruction, Knowing it was a scam, To the point where they wanted to take over the computer. At that point, Stopped the call. As others have said BEWARE. Someone needs to do something to stop these scammers being able to continually phone.
'BT' calling to upgrade my broadband. As I refused to confirm my address she became a little sarcastic. She offered to email me a PIN that would confirm they are BT! She then decided to text it but I don't get reception, She asked which mobile network I was with and shrugged off the BT response so read out my email address-only it wasnt mine! (Potentially it had been linked to the previous owners). She then hung up!
They keep calling my elderly parents at one point they said they are going to disconnect their BT unless they pay an outstanding bill of ¬£150, They are not with BT they are with another company for internet and telephone. It's about time BT stop selling business lines to just anyone
Cold calling, Something fraudulent as never given this number and the have the wrong name. This is one of many from several numbers using this wrong name. I block them all but they keep coming on new numbers...
Called today and rang off before I could answer, They then never ended the call and our number was then registering as engaged for almost 5 hours. Totally out of order as I could have needed to use my phone for an emergency. Hope it logged on their bill!!
Totally browned off by these calls threatening that our security breached & we have to give IP address & change over.!! Whilst i am looking up the number, A malicious site has tried to invade, Despite us having all top of the scale security. Why can trading standards & telecoms moderators get these operations closed down
Said from BT and that we could get a better deal on our Broadband. He said call was being recorded for our security ( laughable!) and tried to get my Partner to sign up for a better deal than he would get on website. My Partner said he would prefer to browse on website rather than be pressurised into a deal on phone. He said he was suprised BT dod business in this way.... Which of course BT doesn't.... This is a SCAM!
According to a BT website (s. Btpartners,) this is one of their partners and they are basically touting for business on the behalf of BT. The details of the company is as below and this states the number on which they will call you - this one. If they continue to pester I suggest you report to BT. If enough people do it, They will lose their partner status. ResQ Spectrum 3 Spectrum Business Park Seaham SR7 7TT Contact us 0333 443 2822 resqcs. Co. Uk We will call you from 0191 671 9986
