spate of bogus automated BT disconnect warning calls since yesterday

Be sure any gullible in your family know its just a con. It will ask for you to hit 1 or 2 to talk to someone

Thanks for warning @Gus , but if you look on http://uk.whocalledme.net/ , for instance, this has been rife for a long time, and from myriad fake numbers.

Re: spate of bogus automated BT disconnect warning calls since yesterday

only just started getting them my self hence me reporting them for a heads up, I got 4 calls yesterday and day before and so far today 1, but I have been giving them an earful.   They hang up now rather than try the con for answering the key press

Phones that have the BT Advanced Call Blocker feature built in are quite cheap and will stop any of these automated calls from getting through.
