01785 463 178 BT Fake Calls - you are going to be disconnected, press 1
We have been receiving reports of suspect phone calls, allegedly from BT stating that the service is about to be shut down and to please press 1 for details.
Now we have not taken the plunge of actually pressing 1 to speak to someone but can report that the 1471 lookup gives a number of 01785463178 which will not receive calls 'the number you have called is not recognised' which seems odd as it is the BT service that gives the number in the first place and so it should be correct.
These calls are being received by people who are on the BT 152 call protect privacy service which seems strange as you would think that the numbers would be protected.
Either way none of the customers of BT being contacted have had their service removed and so this is obviously a scam.
If we intercept a call we will try speaking to someone to find out what they are trying to extract from people and report back.
