    Andy reported BT with the number ‎+441793596931 as Harassment calls

    Easy to spot fraud. Man with Indian accent, claiming to be calling from BT in London, and clearly reading from a script, told me there had been lots of suspicious activity on my Internet connection. I pressed him for a genuine BT number I could call back on, and he gave me 00441793596931, a Swindon area code. Lots of background chatter, poor quality line. Told him I couldn't hear him properly and kept him talking to waste his time until he finally gave up and hung up.

    Justin replied 9/30/21, 8:47 AM
    Yes, same happened to me. Told by articulate and slightly aggressive 'Henry Smith' that my line is being compromised etc. I asked for his details and contact, and he told me he would tell me my IP address as proof that he was BT. I told him that wasn't proof and he gave me his ID of BT0786 00 44 1793 596931 (there's a red flag, why would BT use international format).
    I decided to have some fun and told him I was a BT Director (I'm not) and would investigate. You have never see anyone hang up as fast!
    Nasty scammers. I wonder what their true motive is. Also, shame on BT for doing nothing to deal with these calls.

    Another Router doesn't update calls. Obvious attempt to access PC. Apparently all I needed to do is log in to their secure router and download an update.
    Managed to keep him talking for 9 minutes before the toad hung up. I made the mistake of sounding like I knew what I needed to do. Better to have pretended to have had problems and he'd have kept trying. Still at least that is 9 minutes of his working day wasted.
    BT you have the technology to stop these calls, you should be doing so. Shame on you BT.

    DO NOT GIVE THIS PERSON ANY INFO ON THIS CALL!! A man with a strong accent calls claiming to be from BT Openreach saying that even though I may be a customer of another provider, BT controls all UK internet connections. Claims that I have suspicious or infected router. Asks you to download Quick Support from Play Store and give him the access code it produces so that it he can check for infected IP addresses. DO NOT DO THIS. I said I was not prepared to do this and asked for a number that I could use to verify his info. He gave me 01793596931 which will connect you with a colleague who is in on the scam.

    Foreign caller showing 07780 394984 but claiming to be available on 1793596931 pretending to be a BT engineer to "help" with the junk files in the router. Well trained scammer probably, claiming BT is the "mother" provider for internet whichever provider you're actually using.

    Lady just called saying she was from BT and that my broadband has been hacked and if I can't download the software to fix it then my internet will be switched off. She told me to download an app which I did but upon downloading it I realised it was an app to remotely control my phone from another device. When I asked why she needed to control my old broken phone when apparently the internet line is the problem she passed me to a man who became aggressive and passed me back. I asked for her number so I could call back after I had checked that she wasn't the scammer and she tried her hardest to get me to stay on the line and open the app allowing her to control my phone! Ignore this number, total scam
