    Diablo reported BT with the number ‎+448001691608 as Telemarketer

    10/29/14, 1:38 PM

    This number called me today around12.30pm. Guy says he's calling for BT and wanted to speak to the telephone line account holder or whoever has the broadband account. I refused to discuss anything and just said that this number is listed with TPS. This alerts the caller that they are not allowed to make cold call marketing calls.
    I have had quite a number of calls from this num ber left on my answer mqchine over a year.
    I believe it is a third party 'agent' company marketing for BT to entice customers to upgrade their broadband to Infinity.
    Some may offer to make the switch for no extra cost for rest of contract. However, as soon as a new contract period is negotiated the Infinity price will be also upgraded. "Nothing comes for nothing!"
    If you backtrack to complain for niusance calling. BT will deny and say iits not them, it is a third party company not calling on their behalf. This is so BT can deny they are contravening TPS rules and guidelines.

    I am thinking of raising a complaint direct to BT head office about the calls I have received claiming I have missed payments when all my payments are up to date, and enclosing proofs of payments and a conversation script as back up.

    This number just called with an automated message saying it was not a sales call and that they needed to speak with the BT bill payer and gave options to press 1 if I was, 2 if I wasn't but was authorised to talk to them or 3 if I wasn't the bill payer or authorised. I just hung up. No way I am pressing anything to some automated voice call. If someone wants to speak with me they can get an actual person to call.

    Has called my work number every day for the past 2 weeks, my name isn't on the BT account so I press 3 each time. There is then silence until the line eventually cuts off. They know they won't get information from me, so they don't bother.

    Called my elderly mother at 9:30 this morning with an automated message puporting to be from BT. Made her upset as they threatened to cut off the phone (which I told her BT don't do) if she didn't pay some bill immediately. I was able to put her mind at rest. Why are BT allowing these crooks to operate on an 0800 number?

    Have had similar calls from this number on many occasion, asking me to pay a bill I had missed otherwise I would have restrictions placed if I did not pay up.
    I have kept all my monthly payments to BT to date to the right account number and sort code, so how can they say I have missed, me thinks this is a scam as others have reported on here, and I have reported this number to ico

    Paul Hill replied 11/5/17, 6:08 PM
    On the last call I did actually press 1 to confirm only to find the recorded message saying I had not paid a bill, am still waiting for the email confirming the amount owed. In fact on a previous email I received advising of a bill they claim I had not paid, I paid using my bank account online, not the link in the email to be safe. To date, BT have had two payments in October the one for the amount on the email and the correct monthly charge.

    A man from 'BT' phoned today from 08001691608 asking to speak to the account holder. Gave the correct name of account holder. Also asked about renewing my BT sports package over the phone and told me it was due November. Very strange request. For years I have always renewed it online. I refused to give my bank details.

    bob reported number ‎08001691608 as 'Windows'

    12/21/15, 2:41 PM

    she said we were getting an error everytime we logged into our server and she was here to help fix it. when i asked where she was from, she said windows operating system. she wanted to know if i was in front of my computer now and she would fix the problem. 'the server was reporting an error'. hard to hear or understand so we went round in circles a couple of times without clarity until i hung up on her. we don't use micrrosoft windows.
    this number rings my landline and mobile quite often but this is the first time i answered

    Jane replied 7/31/17, 5:41 PM
    Bob, even if you did use Windows, how likely is it than anyone from the Bill Gates corporation would actually phone a user of their system? Answer: really, really not remotely likely! Even if you want to contact them, you never get to speak to a person. Good for you for hanging up. I just don't answer numbers I don't recognise. If they're genuine, they'll leave a message.

    They phoned both my landline and mobile phone yesterday and this morning. When I answered yesterday, I was asked for my banking details, which is when I hung up. I got an automated message from 0800 7837854 telling me to phone 0800 1691608 this morning. I phoned BT yesterday and used their online chat help this morning. They have nothing to do with this number.

    Spam Caller
    Number rang this morning and automated message saying they were calling from BT and that my Direct Debit had been cancelled & to press button to set back up. I didn't press anything and checked by online a/c & rang BT directly on 0800 800 150 who confirmed my Direct Debit wasn't cancelled and that last payment made.
    I rang number back 0800 169 1608 & got message saying BT tried to contact me & will try again later.
    If you listen to the call it is very crackly & appears to be a recording of BT standard recording, so don't be fooled.
    Never give your bank details out & when you hang up, wait for about 5-10 mins before ringing directly to BT on 0800 800 150 to make sure spam call has got off the line.

    3/23/15, 9:44 PM

    Call received 8:30pm. Asked for account holder, which I confirmed I was. Telemarketer confirmed from BT and was able to state my name (which I certainly had not given), so probably BT or an agent (I am ex-directory). She seemed to know a lot about the type of account I have.

    Call was mostly information about BT infinity. Didn't actually try to sell me anything, even after I asked a couple of questions. At this point I thanked her for the information and she ended the call!
