    scam telephone call 13th Oct 18 at 9:38 AM
    Please be aware that a telephone scam is now going around.Twice this week they are saying my ISP provider has been compromised, and they will be disconnecting my internet. Hang up, do not do anything they say. This is in the northeast area as i believe they go from one area to another. It starts with a telephone no 02. Be careful.

    Yes i know, but a reminder to people does not go amiss as not everyone are aware. Like Bank scams.

    Problem is those that fall for these scams do not read your posts .
    They simply mass call the entire UK telephone book .
    Phones from fake numbers as well .
