Recently started recieving calls in the morning around 9am from this number. Haven't answered it personally, as they all go to the answer machine. It's an automated female voice claiming the broadband connection has been hacked, and that the account will be suspended for 3 months if 1 isn't pressed when prompted to fix it. There's no mention of VM or any other business or even government body in the automated message. It's just connection hacked, press 1 to fix it or else. Started about a week ago, and I should note that the number in the subject header is the one I got from dialling 1471 after this morning's call attempt.
Searched online for this number and got nothing. All I know is it's a Midlands dialling code.
I believe it's a scam, but the message has got my mother a tad worried, and I'd like some confirmation from VM that this is indeed a scam.
