Security Phone Calls Made

I have had numerous ‘withheld’ calls from some place saying they were going to disconnect my internet connection due to illegal undertakings on my account. I had to press 1, 2 or 3 to talk to various departments. I hung up.

What is going on - How did they get my account number and phone number.  Please advise.

Re: Security Phone Calls Made

It a common scam that has been doing the rounds for months.  Did they actually quote you account number?  Phone numbers are easy to find and in many cases the scammers used automated dialling systems that randomly call thousands of numbers.
