New Telephone Scam

telephoneA Cambridgeshire resident received  a call on their landline yesterday from 01438042813.

It was a recorded message stating that their internet was going to be turned off within the next  four hours and it wanted me to press 1 to connect to my internet provider.

The resident thought this was suspicious and disconnected the call. .

They contacted their Internet provider and they confirmed that this was not something that they would do.

Remember:

STOP - Taking a moment to stop and think before parting with your money or information could keep you safe.

CHALLENGE - Could it be fake? It’s ok to reject, refuse or ignore any requests. Only criminals will try to rush or panic you.

PROTECT - Contact your bank immediately if you think you’ve fallen for a scam and report it to Action Fraud.
