SCAM CALLS....

Post by catkins » Tue Dec 04, 2018 11:23 am

If you get a call from BT.....claiming your Internet/phone is in the process of being cut off.....and 'we will continue the process unless you Press 1.'

DON'T DO IT !

Within a day or two you will get another call saying that your Cyber Security has been corrupted.......just put the phone down on calls of this type.

BT will never alert you to any problems this way.

This, from one of the posts, offers some reassurance. Pressing 1, though best avoided, will not, itself, cost you anything, just open the way for more pressure-calls from the fraudsters:
TBH , it wouldn't cost anything to dial '1' , apart from opening yourself up to the scammers pressure to get to you to install software/malware or whatever they try and get you to do.
