    I have also received a similar call and, like with you, when I asked for him to tell me my name he got it wrong. When I said I would contact BT myself, he hung up.

    I've had 5 calls from this number in 3 days - all telling me I've computer problem. They sound very convincing, saying they are BT- but how many Asian staff do BT have? Luckily I checked out the number after the first call and found out it was a scam. It is a disgrace they can carry on like this. You'd think some official organisation could stop these calls once it is an obvious scam.

    Pretends to be from BT and says you have been hacked and must download and install software on your PC to resolve the issue or you broadband will be cut off.
    Come up with a name - like Yuraj Ehrk - give them this and waste their time with nonsense answers. I tell them I don't have internet and I don't have a phone and their call has come through to my gas cooker. Another alternative is to be an automated response, e.g. "Good morning, this is the soiled toilet paper recycling company. Press 1 to buy, 2 for deliveries or 3 for laxatives....." You get the gist.

    2ND call in 2 days. 1st was an Asian lady saying she was from the telephone preference service and wanted to ensure I no longer got unwanted calls, I advised her that she had called me without my permission and hung up. Today I got call and this time an Asian man said my internet would be cut, when I questioned him strongly on this given BT do not control my internet he became abusive and actually called me a b...h, charming, needless to say I terminated call

    Was called today by this number and he knew my name. Asian accent and sounded like call centre in background but of course could have been a recording he was playing. Wittered on about my internet going to crash in two hours but could not understand him very well so I let him talk for a while and then just hung up. Guessed it was a scam and now see from checking the number that it is. Also get the silent and "goodbye " calls. Why is nothing done about these? They are just a pain especially if you are expecting a call and they are wasting call time. Will know not to answer now if that number comes up....

    Received call from this number on 9th December 2016. Asian women telling me my BT internet had issues; well since I got rid of my line into the house about 5 years ago then this was a Christmas miracle. Suffice to say I called her a liar and suprisingly she hung up. My big issue is how if this has been reported for this long, why has this number and all the others not been terminated by the service providers. Makes you wonder!!!!!

    I am getting constant calls from 01235264789 saying my internet has been compromised and i should run a process called anydesk to clear the problem. The person with an Asian accent gives their name as john roberts BT8600062 from BT Technical Department. When asked where he was located he said Holborn in london. He tried to persuade me to download a program called "anydesk" which is a remote desktop. I refused and hung up. I have now blocked the number.

    Keep getting these calls 3 today line is quite and then female says goodbye.
    Other times informed this is BT and my internet connection that there is a problem.
    Problem is not with BT.
    Asian lady called maria asking for person responsible for internet router, suggested if they had phoned should know whom they were ringing.
    rang off when asked for their No. to phone them back.
    Sick and tired with these calls time action was taken about being able to use UK phone number for these scams!

    Had called today from 'Adam' from BT? Probably Indian/asian, noisy office. Said I was being hacked on Facebook, and online, etc. Seeing i don't use these knew it was a scam, and would not open up for him. Said I would crash in a few days. Told him in no uncertain terms what to do and hung up!!
