Re: 2nd phone scam re internet connection - report and warning

Hello to all.

My mum also received an automated phone call today.

The number was 01232772875.

The automated caller had a strong non-UK accent and said the internet would be cut off and gave instructions to press a phone keypad key.

My mum didn’t press any key and put the phone down.

I’ve also checked PN’s web site and couldn’t find anywhere to report this number.

Thanks for the post’s info here.

Hi.  Just to report that we received one of these scam phone calls this morning.  Robotic female voice saying that there has been illegal activity on our broadband and that it would be closed down in the next 24 hours - and please press 1.  Number was 01760 545616.  We didn't press 1 ...................

Re: 2nd phone scam re internet connection - report and warning

These are very old scams.....it’s important to be aware that these scammers switch to new scams once people become aware of the old ones.

Several months old but I posted on here the call about my loft insulation being faulty and attracted damp could they come and do a survey.

Ignore any phone calls you do not recognise unless it’s from me asking you to pay a £100 into my Nigerian bank account if you want a share of the millions of pounds soon to be released by the government, the £100 is just for the legal paperwork.

But act quick.....offer will close soon due to demand.
