Ive found something new!

This isnt like one of those "virus alert emails" its a bloody new trick by scammers.

Like any big company BT change numbers every so often, and as many who change home numbers find out those numbers get re-used.

I called the operator on 100 from a BT phone - you can check the validity of this yourself for any suspect number you get called from.

My partner is a member of the TPS and shes also signed up to the mail version as well - so we still get these random calls.

and every so often i visit to see who the idiots are calling.

My partner isnt with BT, has never been with BT.

So some guy calls and says he is from BT updating my account - it took about 30 seconds to kick in - my partner is registered with cable phone company as MISS, and i have a deep certainly not a MISS voice. So almost instantly i knew something was amiss.

He wanted bank details - to confirm my direct debit So i asked him if my last payment of £419.00 had gone thru - he waited a few seconds and said "yes, that was paid on the 13th january"

the only sting was the call was REVERSE charge! Cost me £2.88

somehow they can now change a message saying press 1 to accept the charges or 2 to reject the charges - bloody scammers Mad

Genuine companies always call you by name - or at least the first thing they say is "can i speak to xxx please"

BT do not use robots to call people on lines that are NOT BT, even if you give them a mobile number they will as everyone knows try the bt line - even if there calling the "faulty" line to let you know theres a fault.
