Scam caller not hanging up

  • I received a call which went to answer phone and the line is still engaged 1 and 3/4 hours later. I looked up the number and its a scam call. How do I clear the line?

Re: Scam caller not hanging up

Hi F12 and sorry to hear about your landline being constantly engaged. I've had a look at your line details using the information we have on here and can see a problem. The line details for yourself and a different customer of ours are the same which may explain the issue. I've removed your number from the switch as I can see an engineer has already been arranged to take a look and I've fully noted your details with the data for our Telephony Provisioning Team.

 

When the engineer arrives, he'll check the cabinet outside and speak to our Telephony Provisioning Team so they can check the current line location and other ones for you to get it working as expected. I'm sorry about this but do pop back on here after the visit if you're still having problems.

 

Thanks,

 

Lisa

Re: Scam caller not hanging up

Can you confirm the engineer won’t need to visit my accommodation. Thank you.

Re: Scam caller not hanging up

Please read the thread from the beginning!

“When the engineer arrives, he'll check the cabinet outside and speak to our Telephony Provisioning Team so they can check the current line location and other ones for you to get it working as expected”

Does this mean he won’t have to enter my accommodation?

Re: Scam caller not hanging up

Hi Fiona, 

Thanks for coming back to us about this, the engineers will pop a note on your account after they have had a look at the local cabinet/switch box to say whether a further appointment needs to be booked for inside the property.

If this is the case we'll ask you some simple health questions in a PM to make sure we're keeping you and our engineers safe.

Thanks,

Megan_L

Re: Scam caller not hanging up

Does that mean I can't be charged for an engineer coming out as they're looking at the outdoor cabinet? And it can't be a fault with my landline telephone? Also is this entire thread in the public domain on the forum?

Re: Scam caller not hanging up

Hi F12,

 

You wont be charged for the technician, the only time there is a charge is if it is a £99.00 call out charge.

 

Regards

 

Paul.
