Scam calls from BT

BT Scam ‘Vishing’ phone calls

Be aware that several residents of Flackwell Heath have received cold phone calls claiming to be from BT.  The caller claims that the resident’s privacy has been violated and that the line is to be closed down unless the resident takes immediate action.  Options to press 1 or 2 on the phone’s keypad are offered – but I have not been advised regarding these so-called options.

In many of the reports, the resident is not even a BT customer!

This is clearly a ‘vishing’ scam and should you receive a similar call, your immediate action should be to HANG UP.
