Received scam call about broadband

Joining in

Someone called my landlines saying they are from virginmedia (called from 07*********) and they said they can see there are a "lot of faults" on the line. They got me to do a speed test (which showed my speed is fine) and then wanted me to download an app called anydesk so they can "fix" the problem. I stopped them there and called it a scam and hung up. No way a remote access tool can diagnose or fix anything on the broadband line that they can't fix from their side and am not giving remote access to anyone anyway.

Any unsolicited call like that offering tech support in the name of VM is a scam. VM does not offer support in that way. Hang up without talking to them.
