    BT service are disgraceful, dishonest, fooling me, lying to me, treating me horribly.

    In August 2018, when I have read BT adverts about joining BT broadband and getting a free BT Sports on TV for 18 months for £28.99, but I have never got BT Sports, but I am aware and shocked BT service wants more money £50 for activation and £6 for per month. I am aginst BT service.

    Yes, BT service are disgraceful, lying to me and fooling me.

    Yes, BT adverts are FALSE, dishonest, fooling and lying and a good liar. Yes, BT service are interested in the MONEY only.

    Yes, I am leaving BT service. Yes, I am still angry and upset I have never got a free BT Sports for 2 months.

    This number is call back number from BT telephone technicians that do follow up calls to make sure everything is fine with your line to or Internet after the problem has hopefully been rectified. If you acknowledge the call they will text your mobile with a message so that if you have any further problems you only have to message them and they will contact you.

    Oddly enough,the asian woman at the other end wanted a Mrs.Robinson.Now as I'm a MALE and sole occupier and account holder,would you not think this is very strange to say the least.I said she was just a scammer and she hung up.

    12/15/14 1:41 PM

    Voice message with someone pretending to be from BT talking about replying to a text from them that I did not receive. Obviously phishing or scam of some sort as BT do not have the phone number for me that was used to contact me!!! It's a bit depressing that so many people are taken in by this sort of thing. Take control, ask them questions that only you and the company would know and tell them nothing if you are not 100% satisfied with their answers.

    ANON reported number ‎+448000285085 as unknown

    2/9/20 3:20 PM

    Polite Indian Male confirmed he was calling from INDIA. He knew my name. No information confirmed and call terminated.

    Have recently had ongoing problems with B.T. where he said that a complaint "Level-1" was still in force, but he wouldn't have necessarily known that those recent-problems have

    been resolved by the British Telecoms' U.K. infrastructure.

    Have been informed by B.T., THAT THE INDIAN SECTION (involved with B.T. services) IS BEING (or has been) SHUT DOWN, so further calls from this type of number or the INDIAN

    inhabitants - should no longer be occurring as from about February 2020. BUT PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING IMPORTANT INFORMATION - BELOW...

    Therefore as all previous details about any of B.T.'s customers previously obtained within any contractual-employment with B.T. in INDIA, MAY WELL BE WITHHELD BY PERSON OR

    PERSONS IN INDIA AND MISUSED BY VARIOUS METHODS - INCLUDING COPYING/SUPPLYING TO OTHER PARTIES/COMPANIES/ORGANISATIONS - WITHOUT THE EXPRESS

    PERMISSION OR AUTHORITY OF B.T. OR THE CUSTOMERS OF B.T., - PRESENT OR PAST, IS VERY LIKELY TO OCCUR.

    IN THE U.K., THIS WOULD ALMOST CERTAINLY BE A CRIMINAL &/or CIVIL-OFFENCE, BUT OBVIOUSLY INDIA HAS ITS' OWN LAWS WHICH ARE NOT THE SAME AND CANNOT BE

    ENFORCED FROM WITHIN THE U.K.

    ANYBODY RECEIVING FURTHER CALLS FROM THAT NUMBER, OR WHERE CLEARLY THE CALL-MAKER IS NOT ENGLISH, WELSH, IRISH OR SCOTTISH - SHOULD SIMPLY NOT SUPPLY

    ANY INFORMATION WHAT-SO-EVER - EVEN IF THE CALLER SEEMS TO KNOW YOUR NAME ETC.

    SIMILAR SCAMS & "FISHING" FOR PRIVATE INFORMATION - WILL VERY LIKELY OCCUR IN THE FUTURE, SO PLEASE DO NOT BE FOOLED INTO THINKING THAT AN UN-

    SOLICITED/UN-EXPECTED CALL (especially on a Sunday) IS FROM WHOM THE CALLER SAYS THEY ARE OR FROM...

    This number is genuine. She remotely checked our BT You View box and sees an issue so a new box is being sent today from BT.
    SO, the answer is yes this number is genuine.We told her we get spam calls a lot and she told us if you get one - immediately afterwards dial 1572 and the number will be blocked.

    Richard reported British Telecom with the number ‎08000285085 as Trustworthy number

    5/13/19 1:49 PM

    Caller from BT - identified herself. Irish lady,

    She knew why I'd contacted BT and I assume she was genuine. HOWEVER she then started to ask for personal / financial information (nothing too detailed or useable).

    I refused to comply and she quoted GDPR, which always gets me twitchy. I refused to supply personal info and we left it at that.

    I'm 99% sure this call was genuine (although v unhappy BT would not answer my query without wanting personal/financial information).

    HOWEVER, it is easy to spoof numbers so be careful.

    BT need to revisit their procedures as I'm still a very dissatisfied customer.

    Missed a call from BT and phoned back as I've not had a BT service for at least a year. The person who answered confirmed the account was settled and had no outstanding debt or faults and couldn't work out why they would have called.

    This leads me to believe it was either a sales call or the number was simply SPOOFED using the caller ID service to obtain payment or access to a computer.

    Stating from BT She asked if she could speak with Dave, the account is in my full name. She claimed my bill was outstanding and she would stop my line if I did not pay.
    I had spoken to the REAL BT the previous day and confirmed there is nothing outstanding,
    As of 18.00pm I told the woman I would hunt her the fuck down and feed her, her arms and legs.
    Have now requested BT activate their free call blocker and have registered with the TPS.
    Fingers crossed!!

    11/6/17 8:11 PM

    Call from this number at 4.13pm but I let it ring to go to answer phone but when that kicked in the caller did not leave a message, how odd, could be a scam by my reckoning as this afternoon when I had returned from shopping I got a call from a woman claiming to be from BT wanting to verify who I was and said I had an outstanding balance of £11 on my account, in no uncertain terms I told her that until I know what the amount actually refers to I will not pay and she wanted to know when I will pay it, all she kept saying was for my account, also told her that BT keep coming up with figures out the blue when they don't actually explain the reason that led to the alleged amount they claim I owe and in the end slammed the phone down on her. I am not handing over my card details over the phone to anyone claiming to be from BT. Any payments to BT I do directly from by bank account direct into theirs as I know then the money goes into the correct account number and sort code.

    I have been in a panic all morning after 08000285085 called me regarding a fix to my BT cloud, this was after live chatting to them. I listened to some of the comments here and convinced myself that I had been scammed. I let them remotely access my laptop and they fixed my cloud issue. But when I checked the number on line it came up with all the warnings that it was a scam. I've spent hours changing passwords to protect my bank etc and it was all a waste of time. THIS NUMBER IS NOT A SCAM, IT'S A BT NUMBER AND CONNECTS YOU WITH A BT TECHNICAL PERSON.

    This number called us a number of times, it was a lady who spoke, she asked for our card details to settle the account. we know we dont' have an account with BT, so we called BT and asked them if they knew what she was on about, they verified that it must have been fraud. BT NEVER ASK FOR PAYMENT DETAILS OVER THE PHONE!They have reported this call to the security team.
    A simple security question for them is what is our account number? it completely floors them

    This was a BT engineer (from a UK technical support centre) who was returning my call regarding a line fault. I do not understand some of the other reports. It may be because there was a communication breakdown but this is an official BT number unless the crooks are spoofing callerID (even if that can be done?).

    Well anyway she asked me for my name for security reasons well my names john I told her my name was Frank that passed the security person I knew then it was fake .
    She asked for £80 as they had to switch off my BT because of this dept
    Told her I'd phone them back .
    Yes I got back home and yes the BT was still back on.
    I've blocked this number on my Samsung phone.

    This number rang my mobile on this Bank Holiday Easter Monday at 10:22hrs. I am still seething about their waking me up. Again, BT do not have this number. Again, if I am not sure about a number I won't answer, this time I didn't "recognise" it, on principle if I'm woken they can swivel. I'm not sure exactly what they're about, but I'm up to date on my bills and have made no complaint, (I could do, my broadband bill is ridiculous, sticks in my craw how much new customers pay in their deals!), nor am I awaiting a new/ different service. My deduction is it's untrustworthy, I've now saved it in my phone as "Scam" and in future I think I might answer it, especially if they wake me up, just so I can play silly bu**ers with them. They last rang me just before 4pm on 23rd Feb 2016.
