    Please scan through the text below for a recent home telephone scam I have been made aware of. I don't usually pass on 'scams warnings' however this one seems very plausible (especially the part about the ‘mute’ button.)

    I have checked the usual sources (e.g. Scopes, etc.) but cannot find any evidence that this is an urban myth. Please disseminate as necessary.
     
  2. Strange how they ring up when the phone bill's due and they know how much you owe as well: when I phoned BT about the call I had and complained, I never got a reply. My guy was "Michael" - definitely from the "Sub-Continent".
     
  3. I'll phone again tomorrow. :wink: Is this a case for x directory?
     
  4. I've received several international calls recently from people claiming to be from BT in Swindon :roll: Same pattern: sexy sounding female suggests there are problems with my credit card. All I need to do is allow them to check my credit card details..... Background sound of busy office. Tell sexy voiced woman that I'm curtailing the conversation.

    Would I have been more receptive and gullible had I been into females? ;)
     
  5. I'm ex-directory, but don't let that be a brake on calling me! :razz:
