Telephone Scam

I have had this warning of a telephone scam. The advice from Trading Standards is to report anything like this directly to Action Fraud. If you are unsure who is calling then do not engage or give out personal information. 

"Dear All,
Received this email today from a concerned neighbour, so this is just for you to be on your guard and warn your neighbours. I have contacted both trading standards and action fraud on their advice'

    At 0916 this morning we had a call purportedly from BT telling us that our internet would be disconnected!

    We said OK.

The call was from 0161-429 0846. The lady was called Jennifer and was very polite

    When we said OK the call was simply disconnected by her. We did not enter into any discussion with her as to why.

    It seems like a phishing expedition to us though.

    We obviously have not been disconnected yet!!!"
