Re: BT scam call

I think I got a scam call last night. An automated voice said that I have won a choice of 300 in cash or tickets for 2 at an Elvis Presley tribute night.

It said press One for the money, Two for the show :-)

Re: BT scam call

I havent had any scam calls, but I did get a scam text from someone pretending to be HSBC, telling me my account had been "locked" and I needed to click a link to get it enabled again. Total failure : l dont have a smart phone so the link was useless, nor do I have an HSBC account.

Re: BT scam call

The best defence is an answer phone. I get lots of messages or cut offs which I can ignore.

Re: BT scam call

Still lots of Amazon calls, all from different numbers, non accurate - our Amazon costs more than their call suggests.

Ditto, mine directs "international" calls direct to the answerphone, and the rest after 4 rings.
If we dont recognise the number we leave it to the answer phone, they never leave messages !

(I have 18 new calls since I last cleared it, a few days ago)
