BT suggesting my IP Address is being tampered with

Hi, I've had a call from BT stating my IP address is being used by 5 laptops and multiple users, when I live alone and only have 2 laptops. Firstky, could someone confirm whether this is a scam or not? Secondly, is anyone else receiving such phone calls? Thanks

Scam, why not play them along for a while waste their time and they wont be able to scam anyone while dealing with you.

 If they mention laptops, confuse that with lap-dogs, and say that your dogs are well trained and don't (i) Pee on you
