Broadband Speed Check Scam

I think a few people have mentioned this, but it's still on the go. Got a call today from obviously a long way away  - Indian subcontinent at a guess - reckoning they were from VM support and they were trying  to check my broadband speed. I went along with it as far as running the https://www.speedtest.net/ utility.

After that I suspected it was a scam and wouldn't speak any further. Beyond that they start trying to get into your hub etc apparently.

They had suggested that i was on M200  so my broadband speed should be 200 mbs (?)

My results were Ping : 9 ; Download 112 mbps; upload 10 mbps

It doesn't look like the speedtest site is a problem (is it?).
