Same Old Tricks – Beware….

The following scam call has just been reported to me.
I received a call on my landline yesterday from 01438042813.
It was a recorded message stating my internet was going to be turned off within the next 4 hours and it wanted me to press 1 to connect to my internet provider.
I felt this was suspicious and disconnected the call.
I tried to ring the number back and it was not recognised.

I have contacted my Internet provider and they confirmed that this was not something that they would do.


STOP – Taking a moment to stop and think before parting with your money or information could keep you safe.

CHALLENGE – Could it be fake? It’s ok to reject, refuse or ignore any requests. Only criminals will try to rush or panic you.

PROTECT – Contact your bank immediately if you think you’ve fallen for a scam and report it to Action Fraud.
