Hi has anyone had a call from this number:05191127579 saying that the internet will be disconnected within 24 hours, Because someone has been interfering with your internet? I said to her that I don’t believe what she is saying to me and then she hung up.
1) It’s no use blocking the number. 051 numbers are not in use in the UK. The caller ID is fake. Also scammers change these numbers 2 or 3 times a day. You are unlikely to get a scam call from the same number.
2) It’s no use reporting it. Scammers are making thousands of calls every hour, using the internet which is dirt cheap. They also know fully well that our antiquated analogue phone system has no digital internet security & they can call you from India & pretend to be next door. They can even call you from your own phone number.
Just hang up every time they call. Responding to them just results in more calls.
