FIRST – from Sharon:


Hi Jeff,


I have just had a strange telephone, call purporting to be from BT.


They told me that because I am an old customer and pay all bills promptly by direct debit; they are going to give me free phone calls – as well as - 35% off my line rental !


I am not a BT customer, but carried on with the conversation, to see where it was going.  She then asked me to confirm my postcode, which she said they had as ‘WA something’. I confirmed it was correct.  The address she gave me, was also correct.


Then she asked me to confirm my direct debit details, which is when I terminated the phone call.  If it was BT and they had rung me they would have known that 01628 was a Maidenhead number, not Warrington !


Just feels it needs mentioning, as an elderly person could easily be duped into giving postcode, address and direct debit details.


I also rang 1471 after the call, as normally the numbers are withheld but this time it gave the number which is 02063 551198. I have had plenty of the 'Windows' calls, but this is the first time i have had this one.




I put this number into an internet search and these results popped up !  If you get a suspicious call, just ask the internet if it is suspicious !


  • I was phoned today and the caller said they were from BT and could offer a discount and free line rental. Asked for my bank details which they did not get. Checked with BT - they did not recognise the number and confirmed it was a scam.
  • called at least 3 or 4 times daily for about 2 weeks did not answer phone because i have an answer machine and no messages were left
  • Had six calls from this number today really annoying


NEXT – another scam email into my Police Inbox:


It is not addressed to anyone, but the email introduces Sgt Emily Monsoon assigned to Daykundi Province in Afghanistan.  She wants to evacuate $5,500,000 out of Afghanistan to somewhere safe and secure.


‘If your heart insist you help me keep this for safe keeping please send the following to me’  There is then a long list of the personal details she will need !!!




NEXT : from Marjorie,


Hi Jeff, just to let you know that I have been getting the “This is HMRC, you owe us money and we are taking you to court” voicemail.   Fortunately for us, we were out, and the call went to 1571 voicemail.  When I did a 1471 it showed the call coming from 0203 769784.


When I entered this number on Google, it showed thousands of people as having received these HMRC calls from the same number.


Is there any way the police could get the BT Openreach (or the Telco that “owns” the number) to cancel the number/line or at least block it ?


Kind Regards




As fast as numbers are blocked, new numbers are created !  If the scam makes money, it will continue.  The only way to deal with them is to always put the phone down – even mid-sentence – and ensure they don’t score !
