American accent. "BT about to terminate internet connection" "press key 2 to discuss" obviously a high charge for continuing the call.
The call came 4 mins after an identical scam call saying exactly the same and claiming to need router details due to internet service issue.
Scam call claiming to need router detail as internet issue. Then moments later very same call from a different number. Complete scam.
9 times I had this number ring 22 times over 3 days did not answer
3 or 4 times a day this number rings !
Someone "TRYED" to speak in German, he was from Microsoft ....?!
Call started with a poor quality American automated message, followed by another, then a very busy call centre with an Asian lady claiming to be from BT apparently our internet was hacked and we had to download something from a BT website, which was clearly screenshots of a real BT website as you could only use half of the links etc. Very easily tied in knots but put the pressure on very well......
Message said my computer will not work if I don't contact them. A scam no doubt.
SCAM DO NOT CALL BACK ON THIS NUMBER it will NOT be Windows or Microsoft Security Team You will be scammed or pressured in to paying for something which is fraudulent
