Caller ID

Scam detected: Internet Connection scam

⚠️ We have identified the phone number 01872 749862 to be linked to an Internet Provider scam. Usually these scammers pretend to be calling from BT, Talk Talk, Virgin Media, etc and mention they have detected suspicious activity on your IP address/router and threaten to disconnect your internet in 24hrs if you do not make an immediate payment.

You are encouraged to press 1 to speak to a "specialised agent". Then you will be persuaded to download some software, to give them remote access so they can fix your issue. They might request your credit card number or access to your online bank account. If you refuse, they will block your computer with a virus.

  • Remember your Internet Provider will never ask for your credit card number or online bank passwords. So, refuse to give this information and hang up immediately.

    This number called today 12/12/2017 at 9.26am. The man spoke quickly with a foreign accent and said he was calling regarding nuisance phone calls and he can provide us with a system to combat this!. He insisted he was not trying to sell us anything, but he surprisingly had our names, address and debit card expiry date to which he wanted this confirming that this is how we paid for our telephone line!! We then put the phone down.

    called today at 10.15 - said they were calling from BT and that someone in California was tracking all my internet traffic, passwords etc and had accessed all my data. They wanted me to go onto my internet and they would talk me through what to do. I said "no thank you" I will call BT and sort it out direct with them - surprise surprise they hung up! The lady who made the call sounded Asian and there was a lot of background noise of others talking etc which would not happen from a proper call centre either.

    Said they were from BT regarding internet
    I told them that if you have a problem with BT equipment you can never actually get to speak to an agent so I knew it was a scam

    Caller with foreign accent said he was from BT and that my internet connection was due to go off tomorrow. I said I'm not with BT and he said that they provide internet to all the other providers. I told him I'd check with my own provider first and he said they wouldn't be able to help me it would have to be BT. He was very insistant so I hung up. Seconds later he called back and asked why I had hung up and did I want to be without internet? He said he was genuine and that he knew my license number and wanted me to go to my computer and follow his instructions. His tone was quite aggresive so I told him not to call back and hung up again.

    This number called me today at 10:25. I did not pick up the phone and it rang off eventually. I have a caller display and don't answer numbers I do not recognise, usually checking them out on the computer after the call. Thank you to other posters who have identified this number as a scam. Very useful.
