I was called today by someone saying he was from BT and my computer IP address had been scammed and it was now public rather than private and if I turned my computer on he would help me. I asked for his name and telephone number so I could call him back and for some reason (!) he didn't want to as the number was private. I replied that as he knew my name it was only fair that I knew his. He told me his name was James Author and his number was 0044793596931. I said I would ring him back and put the phone down. Dialling 1471 brought up his real number which was 09472254263. Almost immediatly he rang again to ask why I had cut the call !
I reported it to BT and of course it was yet another scammer trying his luck. Needless to say I didn't ring him back.
I am such a sceptic and unbeliever when I get any calls like this that I have been known to put the phone down on real callers and always check.
