Scam call

Please be aware

Hi, I've just received a scam call from telephone no. 01811480297; A recorded message informed me that my broadband was going to be closed down within the next 24 hours and that I had to press 1 to be put through to my "technical executive".  Of course I hung up.

Kind Regards

KP59

UK area code 01811 has not yet been allocated,so, as with most scam calls the number has been faked / spoofed. If you or other VM customers receive another call with the same recorded message it will no doubt come from a different number.

Re: Scam call

Hi Coenoby

You were right, I’ve received at least one more phone call with the same message.
