TalkTalk customers are getting phone calls supposedly from TalkTalk, in reality they’re scammers.
- They will tell you their system has flagged up your internet connection is being used by someone else (or your computer is being accessed by someone else)
- They will get you to run some tests either by opening the ‘run’ command box and entering something like =VNTVWR which will show you lots of errors (most computers will).
- The scammers will then try and convince you to pay for software, pay for someone to fix it or just install some free software to fix it.
- Waste their time as much as possible but DO NOT install anything or do anything on your computer that anyone over the phone tells you to do.
