Exclamation Sky tv scam

Beware I recently received a call from SKY TV offering me as a valid long term customer great new deals!!!!

The caller asked for my personnel details straight away bells ring this is not GENUINE!!!

I replied if you have my details then give me my name address etc.

Reply we cannot do that,then send me me your deals in the post or by the internet?

Caller this deal is only over the phone, I then said this is a fraudulent call and the phone went dead, not before I managed to get the callers number of 02920445100.

Checks with SKY TV reveal this is the latest scam to get your credit card details and then make fraudulent transactions.
