    Rang me several times today saying I would be getting a new BT hub delivered on Friday .Then aske d if my PC was on so that he could show me what was wrong and then asked me to enter a website and I realised it was a scam and cut him off. I got onto the bt website and phoned a number. It just said we have been trying to contact you and will try again later.since had further calls.

    First call said they were BT and there was a problem with my router. Had at least 4 calls but no one there when I answer. Funnily enough my broadband went down for about half an hour after first call.

    I like to string them along. Have a chat, make some tea. Just don't do anything they ask you to do. The longer we can keep them on the phone for the more money it will cost them. I pretend to be a deaf old man.

    Rang twice today and few times last week. I answer but do not say anything. "Hallo hallo" at the other end in Indian accent and then they ring off! Such a nuisance

    Called about 15 times in the last week. Clearly from an Indian call centre. Different person each time. Gave English first name each time but strong Indian accent. Said they were from BT. Had detected problems with my router. I had been downloading viruses which made my computer run slow. I asked a couple of them how the weather was in Bangalore. One rang off immediately. The other insisted I must be Indian so I think I must have guessed the location correctly. Very incompetent scammers. Very unconvincing and why would they waste time on repeated calls.

    Had a call recently.When I queried the fact that if he was from BT, as he claimed, then he should have my account number on his screen and could he give it to me, he said that he was not allowed to give me that information!!!! I clicked him off.
