Husband received landline call saying internet would gp off in 4 hours. press 1 and go check bars on router. he did press 1 but phone dead when he got back to it. he took a while. Are there any
repercussions from having pressed 1? Worried we are now conncted and paying someone elses calls.
These are scam calls & just about everyone with a landline has been getting them. Just hang up without saying anything. If they realise there is a real person answering they tend to ramp up the calls. NEVER press any buttons the calls ask you to as this can lead to you being transferred to a premium rate number.

Miscreants will try to induce victims into calling a premium rate number; the implication being that they cannot simply trick the recipient of the call into pressing a key to defraud them via premium rate line charges.
