Broadband scam

Long silence…

Slightly ropey line. Long distance call. “Hello.. are you there?”

“Hmmmmm…”

“The reason I’m contacting you today is because we’ve been doing some work on broadband in your neighbourhood for BT and we’ve noticed that your line isn’t performing as well as it should.”

“Hmmmmm…”

“We would like to do some work on your line… are you sitting at your computer now?”

“Ah.. thanks very much. I’ll contact BT directly thanks.”

I hung up.

This was a call from an obvious scammer so thought I would share. If in doubt google “broadband scam” and see what you come up with. This is what I found.

It’s been going since 2010. Shows that some people must fall for it.
