    I would not have picked up normally but this is my local code. Caller was a male speaking very bad English and calling about a computer. Gave him short shrift and cut him off. Surely B.T. Can track these people who are using bonafide codes but not recognisable numbers. The next time (if there is a next time) that this number shows up on my caller i.d. this person will get more than he bargained for!

    I have had these calls over the last two days, told them where to go.
    There must be a way to stop these type of calls, or is it that the regulatory authorities just don't care?

    Someone called me from the windows computer technical department and said that if I don't take this call it will call me every day at least once until I agree to do whatever it is they want. This is threatening and definitely harassment!

    repeated calls, as above from man claiming to be calling from 'Windows'...saying that they were receiving warning notices from my computer.I have reported this to BT but no cessation as yet...BT confirm that it is a scam number. Told him this and he became somewhat aggressive so I ended the call by inviting him to multiply elsewhere....
