New TalkTalk Scam (similar to previous scams)

New TalkTalk Scam (similar to previous scams)

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.

Try and cancel your TalkTalk account
