BT, Microsoft and HMRC Scams
There has recently been a significant increase in scam telephone calls purporting to be from BT, Microsoft or HMRC.
The BT calls say that your internet connection is compromised and will be terminated unless you press '1'. Microsoft will try to convince you your PC is compromised. HMRC calls try to tell you you have unpaid tax.
THESE ARE ALL SCAMS. The advice is:
- These bodies will never call you out of the blue and will never object to a request to deal with things in writing.
- Just hang up - don't press any buttons and don't speak with anyone.
- If a person does speak to you, do not reveal ANY information, including even innocuous-sounding requests, and tell them to put the matter in writing to your address (which you don't reveal). Do not accept any excuses why this is not possible - just hang up.
- If you have call blocking, then after hanging up dial 1572 then select option 1 then 1 again. This will block the number from calling you again. If you don't know if you have call blocking, try 1572 anyway - it will tell you if you don't have the service. Unfortunately, this won't be completely successful as the spammers have many numbers to call from.
