My 96 year old neighbour who is almost blind and can hardly hear has just had a telephone call to say that her phone was about to be cut off because she hadn’t paid her bill.
I rang BT but it was a difficult conversation as they insisted on talking only to her, all very right and proper but It would have been esier if she could have answered some security questions then let me deal with the call as I had to keep giving her information from her bill as she couldn’t see.
In the end it was a scam, I rang the local police as I had rung 1471 and got the number that had called her. They didn’t want it as they said there are hundreds of these calls happening every day and it can’t be stopped as they come from abroad. The callers hope that you will go and get your bank card to avoid being cut off, didn’t work with my neighbour as she can’t see to give them the details.
