Be careful.
Get 00800 calls often when just logged on, which is weird as I don't log on that often. Had 00800 calls before alleged from Norton, Microsoft etc clearly scammers or hackers, I know I've been hacked by one of these International 'Toll-Free' nos which can charge you if you answer or call back, beware !!

Another Computer Scam
Call from the 'Windows Technical Department'. My computer is infected evidently. Asked me to find the CLSID and told me what it was - it is the same on all machines. He claimed that it was unique and was linked with my phone number on their database.

Does anybody still fall for this nonsence

Idiot who knows nothing about computers
Some numpty with an Indian accent claimed that my 'main computer' was showing problems. When I said "Which one" and asked for the IP address of the computer they were monitoring, he just said "Your main computer" again. So I repeated my answer and he hung up. The idiot clearly had no idea what an

This number rang me at 5.20 am on a Sunday morning
It's the second time this number has shown up on my 1471, but with any 'unknown to me' number - I assume it's a scam and never answer it (and certainly wouldn't dream of calling them back). My daughter believes its an Indian caller but I have no way (or inclination) of verifying that. I think BT should by now, have found a way of blocking any overseas caller that their users haven't listed as safe.

Professional fraudster!!
Do not answer this call - this are professional fraudsters that call you!!

They pretend to work as a US-govermental organisation offering access to a Greencard Lottery which does not exist.
They pretend to call you from Texas, in fact they operate for instance from Cyprus, speaking perfect German, English or whatever you speak.

As soon as you fill in any gap on their website they start to track and manipulate you, making you give your credit card number and pay the first fee. You will loose periodically a lot of money!

If you've already answerd the call, hang up asap!

pushy call from 008318085100
Had a phone call from this number, caller says hello is Mr XXXX there(name withheld), another member of the famils says who are you and what do you want. Caller wants to know if XXX is there(again name withheld) and how long I have been living at this address. No idea why he would want to know that, but caller is told in no uncertain terms where to go and the call ends.

Do not call him back
He called me as well, I read that is if you are going to call him back you will spend a lot of money, some people say that it comes (or he is from) Switzerland.
I received just now the missed call on my uk phone, I would like to denounce him.

PPI nuisance call
I get these everyday. Usually it's a pre-recorded message. They can't even be bothered to get people to speak to you anymore.
I will report this number to the police as a constant nuisance call.

Hung up
When I answered the phone it was quiet for a few seconds then hang up. They rang my phone at work so thought perhaps when they realized its a business number they hung up?

Or it could be tele-sales as they sometimes have a computer that randomly phones numbers and when someone answers the computer puts the call through to an operative, if there are no operatives available it hangs up. I know this does happens but dunno if thats whats going on here.

If you call it back.....
It goes to a recorded message that says the number is wrong which is then repeated in chinese (i think).
This is the first time I've tried this after at least 6 calls over the past 3/4 weeks

Something odd
Called asking for someone who lives here, when asked who it was the English accent replied that they could not tell me due to the data protection act. Unless they are from secret government agency who cannot disclose their existence then I suspect it is a scammer.
