Had few problems with the internet recently – with BT.

Had a call saying it was BT and noted a few problems on my use and tried to help and said that they will get an engineer to pop over tomorrow. Would do some checking if OK. Yes I thought and they connected and said that the fault was there and a refund would have to be paid and asked me to check my bank account so they could arrange. Got suspicions. Then got a text message from by bank about a payment going out needed my approval. I ended the call and pulled the plug on the internet.

When to the bank and found that they had tried to empty my bank account. Closed the account and starting a new account. But now receiving call after call from different numbers – all trying to talk to me about my BT problem. !!!!!!!!!!!

Be warned.

Yes lucky. But I did not give them my bank details only the name of my bank. They somehow got the details from my laptop on line while they were supposed to be helping sort out the problems. 

Have now done a full virus scan on my laptop as a percussion.
